It's school holidays for us starting Monday for 3 weeks .
What do you all do ? On Friday I bought loads of art things ( we have a small room we made into an art room ) and it's all almost gone and glue / materials all over the floor 😝
I have 3 . They get on 75 % of the time but I find then hard to manage alone when we go out because they are all 7 and under and don't listen when we are out ( we do go out just not every day ) . So what do you do at home ? We have just played bird bingo about 4 times and my middle one cried because he didn't win ! Now they are watching land before time .
Need some ideas because I don't cope well with arguing and crying . I used to be a massage therapist for 11 years listening to Enya and staring at candles ... So I really like a calm, happy ,fun house 😆
Let's compile a rainy day / holiday boredom buster list .

What about making some home made glitter glue?
Home made play doh
A bush / nature walk
Picnic on the trampoline - every child makes one thing to take to picnic
Movie marathon day / afternoon
If they are girls - girls day where you do nails

Subbing for ideas because I won't be able to have time off work. I will be home but also work night shift so anything to keep kiddo not bored would be great.

My boys seem to fight 99% of the time they are home together so I'd love lots of ideas for school holiday activities.

These holidays my oldest is spending a few days with Nan and going to see finding dory.
We are going to the grampians for a few nights.
We will do a day trip or two out of town to big playgrounds/indoor play centres
And he's booked into a second afternoon at childcare.
My two are 5 ( goes to kinder 2.5 days and an afternoon at childcare) and almost 15mnths (home full time).
We may go to the swimming pool ot library if im stuck.

DS goes on holidays next Friday for 3 weeks and I've pretty much got play dates, movies, grandparents, aunties and cousins locked in with something on every day, I think we have 2 days left with no plans - I liked to be organised!

We have recently moved states so don't know anyone yet 😖 all family live overseas or in NSW so I'm thinking I'll have to just venture out daily and put money aside for extra strength coffee ! My oldest son is lovely but pretty wild ( ASD) and can make going to places like the zoo /beach/ playgrounds difficult because he likes to do his thing which mostly means walk off ahead and do what he likes. I might go and buy him a small hammer and nails and go on a bush walk and collect sticks and see what he comes up with or I'm thinking with all this rain I might throw them outside with the hose for hose fights in there rain coats ...... Hmm . 😁

Get onto one of those Groupon things. They have some great holiday deals.

Mine can't handle going out everyday so we do
Lots of baking (freeze sone for school lunches)
Water (a few drops of food colouring in water) painting on concrete or fences etc. It just washes off.
Playdough or fondant. The kids love to be able to see their creations on a cake and eat it.
Make our own story books
Lots of pretend play
Chill out days
Feed the turtles at the local river.
