    Aust Zoo are so expensive for experiences with the animals. You can feed am elephant for free but its literally a 2 second thing and you line up again if you want to do it again.

    Do you live near a beach or go swimming? These might be pretty boring but..

    My parents always used to fill our stockings with things like a new boogy board, water pistols, beach towels, sandcastle kits, etc. They are things you can pick up cheap as well.

    We also used to get essentials like a new dress outfit, a pair of pjs, a new pair of swimmers, etc.

    Probably not out of the box, but just throwing some ideas around!


    Married to my soul mate, Mummy to one beautiful little girl, wishing for a little boy to complete our family.

    Oh what about some kids fishing gear? I saw some pretty cheap basic kits at big w the other day.
    Or gardening stuff? I know you said your 3 year old doesn't like mess, but maybe you could plant some seeds in a pot with him - that's not really messy.

    Bunnings often gets basic children's toolkits in. They have proper metal tools only smaller to suit little hands. It also comes with safety gear (hat, goggles and gloves) and a tool belt to put it all in. My DSS's got them and absolutely loved them we let them loose on some old pallets and they created some very cool things. Also good for life skills later.

    Oh thats lovely, Id like that too!

    I will have to look into experience gifts, they're getting 3 park super passes off my mum for xmas so there might be something at Seaworld he will like like a dolphin or seal thing...I'll grab out my laptop and check It out once they're in bed.

    These are all such awesome ideas thank you all so much!

    We had a photo with a seal 2yrs ago almost and it was $40. We had a bit of time with the seal too. Lovely photo we have. They also have swimming with dolphins but not sure how much that is.

    Also lone pine koala sanctuary too for experience. Not sure what they have there but DS who is 6 went there last holidays i think and he enjoyed it.

    Not even elephant feeding any more unfortunately. 2 of the elephants died and they are currently searching for a new home for the remaining one

    Thats really sad. No more elephants there then. Surprised they dont get more to keep them going there as they are such beautiful animals.
