During most of the year, while children are in school or at day care in the Perth area, they are occupied with learning activities. During vacation times, finding other means of child care and ways to entertain your children can be tricky, but thankfully there is a lot going on around Perth and Baldivis that will keep you and your child busy during school holidays.
Fun and Play
During vacation season, it is important to make sure that your children can still stay active and get the same or near same level of exercise that they usually have during the school year. Taking them to places that encourage this is a great idea.
If you live near Baldivis, there are a number of places that you can visit to engage in active play with your children or have them run around and have fun. Jungle Zone is an adventure playground that has many structures and places to entertain your children, and it is only 5-10 km from Baldivis. Happy Hoppers Bouncy Castles also provides an exciting opportunity for your children to jump around and have a great time and is ideal for parties or events.
Arts and Crafts
Besides just physical exercise, arts and crafts are a great way to keep your children entertained while encouraging mental growth and creative expression. There are a number of other places you and your children can go to, where they can meet new friends while having fun.
There are various art centres that offer recreational lessons during vacation. One is Lisa Paris-Painting for Pleasure, which is located in South Perth. Children are not the only ones welcome, but adults as well. Another is the Fremantle Arts Centre, which is 25 to 50 km from Baldivis. They offer “Kids Holiday Program,” where your little one can enjoy clay creations, cutting, pasting and making mosaic.
School and day care vacations may leave parents, especially those working, with the additional task of entertaining their children while on a holiday. There are many places around Baldivis that encourage exercise and creativity, which you can take advantage of.
