After a particularly long term, school holidays are nearly here for the kids to enjoy some down time. I always find that after a few days rest though, the novelty of staying at home in pyjamas all day wears off, and the requests for play dates, trips to the aquarium and movies start flowing in.
So like many parents, I’m always on the look out for new and exciting things to do during this time (that aren’t weather dependent) and particularly love it when our LLC vendors are involved!
I generally do a quick mental check list when qualifying an activity:
- Is it age appropriate?
- Will the kids enjoy it?
- Is there coffee?
If it’s a quick ‘yes’ to these and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, we’re in.
One event you may love to add to the calendar this school holidays is the Kids Day Out on July 14 in Sydney. Presented by LLC vendor and Celebrate sponsor Fairy La La Land, this sounds like a great day out for us all with something for everyone – even us mums.
The talented Fairy La La Land entertainers will be keeping kids busy for a huge 5 hours on the day (if they have the energy to last that long that is!) with live shows, circus performances, Justice Crew dancers, face painting and balloon twisting. Tick, tick, tick!
For mums, there will be plenty of stalls to roam whilst the kids are happily kept busy – and yes, coffee! Held at the Pittwater RSL Club, it’s even worth inviting a group of friends to make a day of it and book a table for lunch too.
The Justice Crews style dancers are always a hit – but be warned, you might see a few moves tried out at home!
Have a great school holiday break everyone.
