Activity videos

APO Make & Do is a series of activity videos designed for pre-school to primary school aged children to be completed at home at a time that suits your family.

New videos will be released fortnightly on Monday mornings at 10am, with a new activity hosted by different APO players. The musicians will also tell you a little bit about their instruments. Each activity can be done with equipment you already have at home. 

The APO Connecting team would love you to send photos or videos of your completed activities. Send them to: [email protected]
