Keeping the Kids Entertained: Our Top Picks for School Holiday Fun


Looking for some fun and engaging activities to do over the last week of school holidays? From playgrounds to movie marathons to arts & crafts - we’ve rounded up a list of ideas to keep kids of all ages entertained.

SLIDE INTO THE HOLIDAYS

How exciting is it that playgrounds have reopened! Wulaba Park Playground in Waterloo is a rainbow wonderland perfect for burning off some energy. Tunnels, swings, towers and one massive three-story-high slide for the fearless kiddos.

    


CHALLENGE THEIR MINDS
A team of engineers at Dyson have designed 44 challenges specifically for children. Spend a fun afternoon  expanding their curious minds by building a spaghetti bridge or trying to push a wooden skewer through a balloon without popping it. Download the free challenges here.

GO WILD
Set the kids loose at the WILD PLAY Garden in Centennial Park. This beautifully-designed park is an oasis of nature-play and adventure complete with a bamboo forest, banksia tunnels and even a treehouse! The WILD PLAY Garden is open 10 am - 5 pm daily.

GET CRAFTY

GRAB SOME GELATO
Get some fresh air and stroll over to Messina in Surry Hills for a scoop of delicious gelato. We’re drooling over their latest creation of citrus-infused honey gelato with honeycomb and burnt honey caramel. While you’re there, make sure you pop next store and say hi to us! We're open 10 am - 4 pm daily. But just make sure you don’t come empty-handed. ;)
