If you're stuck for ideas to keep the kids entertained these school holidays, here are five fun (and cheap!) activities to keep the kids entertained these school holidays!
You don't even have to go to the craft store for this one! Use items from around your house and let the kids get their imagination going. For example, use dry pasta shapes to make homemade jewellery, find some leaves and sticks to make a collage, create a fun treasure map for an at home treasure hunt, turn some stones into pet rocks... the list is endless!
Head out for a picnic
Make the most of this beautiful winter sunshine! Bundle your kids into the car and head to the nearest park, beach or playground. Our Bento Five's are perfect for creating a grazing style platter to take on the go with you - and you would be surprised how much food fits in them! Why not let your little ones help you pick and pack the food to get them excited about going out for a picnic!
Cosy up with a movie day
If you can't motivate yourself to head outside in this winter weather why not cosy up on the couch and have some relaxation! Settle in with some popcorn and a blanket and have a movie marathon.
Bake up a storm
Time to get creative in the kitchen! Pick a recipe for the kids to make (with your help if needed), get them involved in making dinner or set up a DIY cupcake or pizza station for some school holiday fun. Whatever you chose, we recommend using one of our gorgeous kids aprons to help protect the kids clothes and save your washing pile!
Go camping... at home!
Have a holiday at home! Set up a tent in your backyard or a blanket fort in your lounge room and you're good to go. Let the kids have their own adventures or make it a family affair! You can eat dinner together on the floor or in camp chairs, tell stories, and even roast marshmallows to get that authentic camping experience!
Whatever it is that you get up to these school holidays, we hope you and your little ones have a wonderful time! Stay safe and have fun!
