School Holiday Activities

It’s hard to believe we are halfway through the school holidays already!

In case week one cleared you out, we’ve got you covered with more ideas to keep your little ones active and entertained!

Make some slime

Okay, we know it’s not the most original idea, but hey, what little person doesn’t love getting their hands stuck into some slime! Check out this simple recipe here.

Do an indoor scavenger hunt

If you are at home for a day, print off this list and set the kids on a scavenger hunt around the house!

Make some delicious Milo Bliss Balls

It’s an Aussie classic and pantry staple for most families. Grab out the tin and let the kids make some delicious no bake bliss balls with this recipe.

Sign up to StreetNet

Get to know your neighbours this school holidays. Print the neighbour cards here and say hello to each person on your street, make some treats (like the bliss balls) and drop them to a neighbour in need, or plan a party for your street – we can even help you with some of the costs. Find out more here.

Make a bird feeder

Have some pop sticks lying around? Why not make a bird feeder and see if you can attract some local fauna to your backyard. Check out this handy video tutorial here.

Get growing and make your own grass heads

All you need is an old pair of stockings and some gardening supplies to make your own grass head. Grow your own grass, chives or alfalfa sprouts out of this funny little head and have some fun cutting their ‘hair’ as it grows. If you’re little one is a budding green thumb or hairdresser, this is the craft for you!

Make your own DIY Macramé Jar Hanger

All you need is some string or rope to make this gorgeous little macramé jar hanger. Add a small plant or tealight candle to instantly spruce to your teen’s bedroom!

And if that’s not enough, why not check out last holiday’s activity timetables and try some of the activities you didn’t get to at the end of Term 1!
