Activity Ideas for the School Holidays

We are now halfway through the school holidays so hopefully you’re feeling relaxed and have been totally enjoying yourself. In the previous post I listed 40 things to do in the school holidays. If you have read that list you will have come across the following suggestions and if you haven’t read the list, perhaps you might like to visit it now.

These ideas were posted on Instagram during the week. I love the background and font colours, I hope they make your eyes happy too.

Now that most of us are on holidays, I’ll post some suggestions of how you might like to relax. Local libraries have an AMAZING collection of items you can borrow, not just books! Most libraries also have great free or low cost activities running throughout the weeks too.

There are so many things we overlook in our own towns and cities. These holidays consider playing tourist for one day in your own city and enjoy the adventure.

When you bake a tasty treat in your own oven, not only do you get to eat it hot and fresh, you are also treated to the lovely smells that will fill your home.

Taking the time to write a thoughtful letter or postcard to someone you care about is time well spent. Plus it’s always lovely to receive something personal and thoughtful in the mail so you’d be giving the special recipient a lovely surprise.

Camping is a great adventure but if you’re after something requiring a little less effort (& a hot shower) you can set up a tent in your backyard. If that’s a little chilly, then make a fort in your lounge room and camp out there. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
