It’s time to plan for the school holidays!
Want to do something fun with the kids but can’t stand the crowds? You don’t have to venture outside for some quality family bonding. Consider these easy-to-plan activities in the comfort of your own home.
For little ones: Buy candies or goodies, and hide them around the house. Give each kiddo a bag to search for treats.
For bigger kids: Create a scavenger hunt. Divide kids into teams. Start each team off with a clue – until one finds the grand prize!
NEXT: Set Up Play Stations →
For little ones: Temporary tattoos or stickers, or coloured pencils, crayons and paper work great.
For bigger kids: Think beads, jewellery making supplies and buckets of Legos or recycled materials (with tape, glue and/or paint).
NEXT: Good, Old-Fashioned Games →
For little ones: Games like Musical Chairs, Freeze Dance and Pass the Parcel always entertain. Also, piñatas!
For bigger kids: Generally speaking, tweens are not yet too cool to play Charades, Truth or Dare or Who Am I?
