School holidays are coming which means lots of quality time spent with your children and also lots of time spent keeping them entertained. Stay one step ahead of the game with these fun ideas:

BAKE

Whether it’s a no-bake fudge brownie or weird and wacky cupcakes, get the kids involved with a fun and tasty recipe.

DANCE

If your children love to jump around challenge them to a dance-off and let them come up with a dance routine by themselves or with a friend.

JOURNALING

Help them capture their school holiday fun in the pages of a journal or scrapbook. This also makes for a great keepsake.

BEDROOM MAKEOVER

A new bedspread or a funky lamp can spark the imagination for the ultimate bedroom makeover.

PICNIC

Get the kids to help plan and prepare the menu for a wonderful picnic somewhere special.

READ

A good book never gets old. Head to the library or treat them to a new book that they will treasure.

COLOURING-IN

There are so many great colouring-in books around for the kids to enjoy. There are even books for the adults to join in with too.

GO SWIMMING

Pack up the kids and take yourselves down to the local swimming pool. They’ll have loads of fun and burn off all that energy too!

MAKE

A super banana split sundae or a pizza with every topping imaginable. Let their creativity run wild and enjoy eating the results!

CREATE

From making your own Christmas cards to planning special invites, while away the hours as the kids get crafty.
