Congratulations! We have made it to the end of the school holidays!! woop woop!
.I always have heaps of questions going into the school holidays. “How do I keep boredom at bay?”” Will they become TV zombies?”” What fun things can we do together?”
But I have to say this time I had heaps of fun and they did too !! These are some of the activities we did to keep my little munchkins busy:
A guaranteed great time at the zoo! I love the animals and I think my little monkeys do too! 🙂 I love the meerkats aren’t they just so cute! The kids were fascinated by the baboons! We were fortunate enough to witness feeding time for the Tigers. Wow! I was blown away by the sheer size of these majestic beasts!
Kids in the kitchen baking
The scones baked earlier this week were I am very proud to say baked by the kids with a little guidance from me! I love getting them involved in stirring the batter, cracking the eggs, rolling the cookie dough into balls. And they have heaps of fun too!
In the garden planting seeds
So we decorated some flower pots as part of the school holiday programs. Then we came home and planted some seeds in it! And now they wake up every morning to see if the plants are growing.
This one is a great way to get the kids out doors. Pencil and clipboard in hand we went off on a nature trail. So they walk around out side writing down all the things they spot! Some good finds were acorns, snails, different shapes of leaves.
Ah! Road trips! Pack a few sandwiches and we are off ! We went to Muriwai to see the Gannet Colony. It was awesome! Watch out for my next post where I give you all the details!
Hope you are inspired with this list for the next holidays!
