10 School Holiday Activities

I’m a newbie school mum. My little miss started Kindy this year and it only occurred to me a few weeks ago that ‘Oh yeah, that’s right they have school holidays!’ Tomorrow it begins, two weeks of entertaining our kidlets, no packing school lunches or having to remember which uniform they wear tomorrow. Even though we’ve only just finished term one, it feels like a lifetime ago I had my girl all day every day and it got me in a spin thinking ‘what activities are we going to do so she doesn’t get bored!?’Here are my ten budget-friendly school holiday activities to keep the kids entertained and your sanity intact until wine o’clock.
