So what are your plans?
I am feeling lazy today so I have postponed our op shop crawl.
DD2 has a theme birthday party coming up were she needs 2 complete blue outfits, they are going to play with blue slime and slime balls, so we are going to a big op crawl.
We are going to do a few picnic's.
Lot's stay at home activities
Maybe a movie/drive in (not sure whats on)
A day at the museum
A few trips to library
A spring clean day (or as the kids call it a torture day )
What are your plans?

Today I'm spring cleaning and de-cluttering which I love but funnily enough nobody else does
Otherwise we are off to the beach, shopping, cooking, maybe do some eating out, library, playdates and some sleepovers for the big ones.

Today she has her last swimming lesson for this term.
Tomorrow we're seeing madagascar for her cousins birthday.
Thursday going to the local strawberry farm with friends.
Friday I think something with her cousin for her actual birthday day. Possibly Dreamworld otherwise will just go over for a play.
Saturday south bank, swimming and Riverfire with friends.
And then next week she has school holiday swimming lessons (tues-fri) and will go to sushi train afterwards on Tuesday with friends.
I'm hoping to go see Hotel transylvania and a trip to the muesium but not sure on muesium now since we are doing south bank this Saturday.
Play overs and rest days. SLEEP INS
I have to go to tafe next Thursday and Friday so she has those days with her Grandparents.

At the moment we are unable to go out due to our car breaking down great timing....
I had planned
Zoo - kids are free on school holidays
Playdates with friends
Op- shopping and garage sale hunting.
The rest of the time i am encouraging free play lego, outside play, drawing, water pistol fights, toys, xboxing and with the older ones i get them to do jobs around the house such as ....
Helping with the gardening
Squashing the recycling
Putting dishes away
Helping with dinner
Feeding the pets
We even had the 10 yo on the whipper snipper today with DP outside for the first time and he is very proud of himself.
Every time they complain of boredom I offer them jobs to do and they usually run off and find something else to amuse themselves.
ETA Some of the large supermarkets near us offer kids entertainment also Bunnings have kids workshops on.
Also check out Vic national parks they have junior ranger days which is cool.
Other ideas for you
Kick the footy at the oval
Make a vegie patch or kids flower garden
Make a fairy garden
Grab a pile of boxes from the supermarket and they can make stuff
Make cubbys inside from sheets and chairs
Play pretend shops using packets and tins from the cupboard
Paint flower pots
Grow egg head sprouts
Paint a mural outside
