School holiday fun

5/07/2011

How do you keep the kids entertained during the rainy winter month of July? Try these fun activities guaranteed to keep the kids warm and happy!

 

New release movies

There are some great movies on in July that the kids are sure to enjoy. What’s even better is that most of them are also available in 3D, so the kids can really feel like they are part of the film.

•    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 2)
•    Transformers 3
•    Cars 2
•    Kung Fu Panda 2
 
What’s even better is that all of these movies are part of a series, so why not hold your own mini movie marathon beforehand?

Bowling

Fun for all ages, bowling is a great chance to round up the kids and get them out the house for a little bit of friendly competition. AMF bowling centres always have great school holiday deals, but don’t forget to book in advance as they can get busy over these 2 weeks!

RSPCA school holiday program

The RSPCA runs school holiday programs for kids aged 5 -18 with a range of different activities for them to enjoy. For the younger kids, there is the chance for them to interact with the animals, learn how to care for them, as well as some fun art activities. Older kids can learn how the RSPCA rescues and cares for animals, as well as get hands on dog training and experience in the RSPCA vet centres.

Laser tag

If your kids are full of energy, then Laser tag is definitely your solution. Hours of chasing each other around obstacles, up stairs and through the large arenas will make sure they sleep well that night! There are some great holiday deals too, which is always a bonus!

Zoo school holiday activities

Has it been a while since you visited your local zoo? Why not do it these school holidays? As well as visiting all array of interesting animals, there are some great school holiday activities going on at zoos throughout Australia. These include hands on animal encounters, helping feed the animals, and education and art activities. Head to your nearest zoo’s website to see what they’ve got on.


Also, be sure to check what’s happening at your local council. They have some great school holiday activities for the kids that are near to home and sometimes even free!
