Try frozen yoghurt ice blocks, chicken tacos, home-made pizza, nutella and banana sushi or healthy nachos.
7. Active Kids Activities
Keeping the kids active during the school holidays not only keeps them busy but also tires them out, meaning parents just might be rewarded with some chill out time. You could go for a family bike ride. Organise a tennis match play-date with their school mates. Rally the neighbours for a session of backyard cricket or hit the local ice-skating rink!
8. Educational Kids Activities
We know we know, school holidays are meant to be a break from learning. BUT learning a new skill can be just as fun as it is educational. You could book your child in for a Pinot & Picasso kids session to try their hand at art. You could introduce them to a musical instrument and hire a teacher. Or keep it simple by signing up to a free language learning tool for lessons in their preferred language!
