Spring is Here and it's Time to Get School Holiday Ready!
If you're family is anything like ours the words "school holidays" fills you with both excitement and dread! So to help our Sandy Feet Families out we thought we'd share some of our favourite sites with cool ideas for activities with the kids.
School holidays are a great opportunity for a break from the routine and for the kids to get a rest and enjoy some much needed time outside but then the panic sets in over "what are we going to do!" Below are some links to a few great ideas to ensure you don't hear "Mum, we're bored" this school holidays.
DIY Kids Crafts & Games - Good housekeeping have provided some great ideas to keep the kids off tablets, phones etc with chalk, sponges, washi tape and other DIY ideas that won't leave you with a mega mess afterward.
Best Beach Games - We love these 21 fun and active games for kids to play at the beach from Active For Life. There is something in there for everyone, and you don't even have to get wet!
Cooking With Kids - Okay I have to admit this always ends up a bit messy in our house, but it's still a great activity in the holidays when we have a bit more time available for meal prep. BBC Good Food have some delicious and easy recipes that can be made with the kids. If you would prefer a bit of fun in the kitchen, there is an almost never ending list of ideas for cooking with kids over at kidspot.
Local Activities - we always consult with our local "Kids on the Coast" magazine for their school holiday guide. It's a great resource to find out whats happening in your local area. This link is for Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. Check your local area guides for what is on near you.
Nature Scavanger Hunt - these are a great idea to get kids out of the house and interested in nature, and best of all they don't cost anything and are easy to organise. Check out this article a Parents.com for some inspiration.
