Term 4 is almost done. The countdown to Christmas is on. So we all know what that means; summer school holidays!! Six weeks of not making lunches, no school/kindergarten drop offs, and if you’re lucky, the odd sleep in. And whilst all these are great, entertaining little ones who are used to the planned activities of kindergarten, playgroups or MOPS can take it out of us. So here is our roundup of articles to inspire and encourage you these summer holidays.
Jessica Harvey has given us her tips on The ultimate guide to a great summer holiday. Whether you like to planning outings or prefer chilling at home; Jessica has some tips for planning it out and maintaining some sort of routine over the summer school holidays.
If you are looking for some fun holiday activities to do at home, you can find some inspiration here for little kids and school kids alike.
Paula Miller has previously shared her favourite Dos and don’ts for the school holidays. I think my favourite tip from Paula is not neglecting ourselves as Mums. Make sure you are still getting ‘time out’ for yourself, so that the time you are spending with your kids is enjoyed by both of you.
Remember, you don’t have to plan out every minute of their day with actives. It’s good for kids to be bored sometimes, and make their own fun. But if you want some further inspiration on simple activities you can check out these from Be a Fun Mum.
We hope you have a wonderful summer holidays with your loved ones, and that it is a fun and refreshing time together.
