4 ways to make the most of the winter school holidays

4 ways to make the most of the winter school holidays

The winter school holidays are upon us, but the chilly weather can make staying active and engaged a task. Here are four activities to make the most of your time no matter what the weather brings.
Getting active!

Build a cubby house
Inspire imagination, creativity and problem solving skills by building a cubby house as a family! It’s a great way to get outdoors and enjoy some physical activity as well as family bonding time. Choose between a pre-packed cubby house that can be easily assembled, or download plans from a home improvement website and get crafty. Once the adults have taken care of the construction, the kids can get to decorating the space and making it their own!

TIP: Build the cubby house somewhere where you can still keep an eye on your kids from inside your home.

Stay-at-home disco
Work up a sweat and show off your latest moves with a home disco night! The kids will love the chance to make a playlist of their favourite dance songs and let loose in the lounge room. Clear a large space in your lounge room for the dancefloor, lower the blinds and string up some coloured lights or bulbs to create a disco effect. You may even want to take it to the next level with glow-in-the dark face paint!

TIP: Amp up the activity with fun games like limbo and singing competitions.

Rainy day recommendations

Games night
Over the winter school holidays, you’re bound to have a rainy day or two. Some days, you may not want to leave the house! Luckily, there are still plenty of activities you can set up inside.

Create a games night with all the trimmings – you may want to start with a classic board game like Monopoly or challenge yourself to learn a new card game. And don’t forget a tray of snacks!

Create your own superhero

If you have younger kids, they’ll love the idea of creating a superhero that’s all their own. Help them come up with a creative superhero name and write down all their unique superpowers!

Get cutting, pasting, gluing and sewing to help them create their superhero costume and watch as they save the day!

Spice up your school holidays with fun for the whole family. Discover more at Top Ryde City.
