    Default School Holidays..

    Yep so it's that time of year again and with Christmas fast approaching for many that will help fill the void till then. But after the Christmas hype dies down what's everyone planning on doing to help maintain sanity in their home with bored kidlets? And how are you managing this without breaking the bank? (very obvious ploy to get ideas for my two )

    Our plan is to go out once a week with our close friends (between the two of us there are 7kids) to the park for lunch, zoo, scitech, aquarium etc. On the other days I will most likely take the kids to the beach in the morning and afternoons and will spend the hot of the day hiding in the air conditioning.
    Will probably watch alot of movies and do craft activities/colouring -in.
    I am interested to see what everyone else is doing

    can always do cheap outings beach, park, library, meet up with other parents for a park day ( something different) can even get cheap deals at the zoo etc in school holidays kids sometimes free

    get them crafty stuff for Xmas they can create after ?

    baking

    painting t shirts

    water fun- get the hose, water balloons let them go wild( even better if they have friends or cousins etc around to play with)


    I'l come back with ideas that we have done at vacation care later
