School Holiday Ideas and Activities

Finding the right holiday activity for your child can be a challenge. It can be easier when they have a friend or familiar face going to the same holiday activity, so why not check in with other parents to see what their plans are and potentially join the same program?

We’ll be honest, we haven’t tried or tested all of these activities but here are some of the most popular, plus some newcomers, for school holiday fun. This is not a comprehensive list but should give you a few ideas!

Know something we should add to the list? Let us know by emailing us here.
