School Holiday Activities for Busy Parents
It’s that time of the year again – school holidays! Which means one thing! You’re going to need some help planning fun and easy activities to keep the kids entertained.
So, what can you do?
Decorate cupcakes or cookies
One of the best things you can do with kids – is baking! We love spending a few hours baking and decorating cupcakes and cookies. If you’re not keen to make them from scratch, you can pick up a variety of packet mixes for only a couple of dollars at the supermarket. Arm yourself with an assortment of lollies and icing and you’re good to go!
Have a movie afternoon
Movie marathons are another favourite, low cost, and easy activity for the school holidays!
You can pick a theme like Disney Pixar, or simply let each child choose a film and get watching. We love any excuse to binge watch a movie or three!
Kids art and craft has always been a fantastic school holiday activity – as long as you don’t mind a little bit of mess. Gather up as many craft supplies that you can find and let your imagination run wild. Some of our favourite craft supplies are listed below:
• Egg cartons
• Toilet rolls
• Cereal boxes
• Coloured paper
• Glitter glue
• Pipe cleaners
You can even choose to turn art and craft into a theme day by creating items of a similar nature. A good one for these school holidays is Easter! You can paint eggs, make Easter bonnets, or draw and colour bunny rabbits.
Reorganise your kids’ room
If your kids have been asking to reorganise or redecorate their bedroom (you know the kind of nagging we’re talking about), the school holidays are the perfect time!
Consider allowing them to rearrange their furniture, put up new posters, or even create a mood board near their desk. This allows them to express their personality and truly create a space they love.
Get ready for the new school term
Finally, you can’t go past activities that get you ready for the new school term. This could be baking treats for lunch boxes and freezing them. Or turning wardrobe organisation into a game!
