Holidays mean time off from school and children can do the things they want to do—play games, go to the zoo and enjoy other activities with their families. However, while children wait excitedly for this period, parents are often left with a dilemma—how to spend this time off and keep their kids entertained.
Well, school holidays are a good opportunity for the whole family to go somewhere fun and enjoy spending time together, but again, deciding where to go and what to do can be tricky. To help you, here are some of the top ideas for school holiday trips that are sure to be fun for the whole family.
Fun in the Sun
During the sunny, warmer months, beaches and outdoor places are the perfect vacation spots—even only for a day. Hamilton Island is a great spot for children because aside from being close to the Great Barrier Reef, it also offers 40 holiday activities for the whole family.
Darwin is another great holiday spot. You can check out the Kakadu National Park and have some water fun at the Leanyer Swimming Pool—for free!
If you want to children to appreciate nature, then Coffs Harbour is the best spot. You can visit the Marine Park and take pleasure in the Marine Magic Show where dolphins show off their skills and your little ones can get kisses from them. Seals are very lovable and talented, too.
Learning Outside the Classroom
School holidays are a great time to provide your children with an opportunity to enjoy and learn beyond the walls of their school. Visiting places you don’t usually go to and trying out new things and experiences are great ways to bond with your children.
Here are more suggestions:
You can take your children to Hobart’s Cadbury Factory for them to know how Cadbury chocolates are made and explore the tasty wonders of the place. They will have their very own ‘Willy Wonka’ experience and get to sample some sweet treats!
For a more educational tour, you can explore Kangaroo Island in SA and allow your children to enjoy nature and wildlife—see plush bushlands, be amazed by the pristine beaches and enjoy seeing wild animals such as koalas, sea lions and pelicans.
Enjoy the Holiday
Holidays mean days off from school, but it doesn’t mean that learning should stop during that time. Make the most of this great opportunity and take your children somewhere fun and educational and enjoy the time together.
