Running out of ideas on how to entertain your kids over the Summer break? Here’s a few ideas to give you some inspiration!
- Have a kids MasterChef competition at home. Keep meals simple – something such as pizza (just the toppings for little kids) is perfect. This works especially well if the kids have a few friends over. Have a competition as to who makes the best pizza – you can be the judge. Making dough from scratch is fun (and tiring!) but very inexpensive. Plus an added bonus – you don’t have to cook dinner!
- I the weather is kind to us, visit a local park. Ohh yeah – you’ve heard that one before. But not just any park, get on the internet and find a park that you haven’t been to before. Many of the new Council playgrounds are marvelous. There is water play, flying foxes, all sorts of do-be-watchits and thing-a-majigs! A lot of them are fun for parents too!
- If the weather isn’t so kind to us, go Swimming. Check out your local pool. It’s cheap to get in. All kids love swimming and there is always a nice spot for Mum to sit and read with a coffee whilst Dad watches the kids! Sick of the local pool? Visit one of the really big water parks!
- Plan a farm visit, it is not a unique activity but it never goes boring. You can do lots of activities in a farm, ride horses, feed goats, watch the ducks fall in line and indulge in the local farm ice cream and sweet treats!
