For youngsters intent on enjoying the school holidays outside, the weather continues to offer a few challenges.

After a cool morning complete with a few splatters of rain, Thursday dried off and warmed up, a trend that is going to continue on Friday.

The Bureau of Meterology is predicted a top of 40 degrees on Friday, along with showers.

By contrast, the temperature for Saturday is expected to be a much milder 29 degrees and those showers are expected to hang around.

Sunday’s predicted top is much milder 27 degrees, before the expected maximums begin to rise again.

For parents looking to keep their children entertained and out of the heat, there is plenty on around Wagga on Friday.

It is the last day May Gibbs fans will be able to visit an exhibition of the Snugglepot and Cuddlepie author’s work at the Wagga library.

Young scientists can beat the heat with a visit to the Fascinating Science exhibition, which is at the Museum of the Riverina’s Wagga council chambers site for just two more weeks.

In the Wagga Marketplace, the Paw Patrol craft zone – including meet and greets with Skye – will be held between 11am and 2pm.

In the Sturt Mall, children can decorate their own library bag at a craft zone between 1am and 2pm.
