1. Waterslide and pool fun - Your local swimming pool is a great way to allow the kids to exercise and burn off some energy.
2. Trampolining - Trampolining seems to be the latest thing with trampoline centres popping up all over the place.
3. BMX track - an excellent way to exercise, learn some new skills and have some fun in the fresh air.
4. Skate park - Bikes, skateboards or scooters (and helmets) at the skate park are sure to bring hours of fun for the kids (but may not be so great for the faint-hearted observing parent).
5. Local parks - make a point of visiting some new parks in your local area, you may be surprised to find a new favourite.
6. Beach days - Most kids and parents alike will enjoy a day at the beach. The beach is one of my very favourite ways to get outdoors into nature and to be active in such a beautiful, natural environment.
7. Ice skating- Check with your local ice-skating rink but a lot of rinks will run school holiday lessons/programs that you can book in for.
8. Sports programs - Indoor sports centres and sports clubs often run holiday sports programs that will allow the kids to exercise and learn new skills at the same time.
9. Family bike rides - sightsee, exercise, experience nature and spend time together as a family = win win win!
10. Outdoor adventure fun- Check out your local Sport & Rec centre to see what they offer during holidays. Quite a few run camps where kids can learn to abseil, rockclimb, canoe and much more. Other outdoor adventure style facilities can offer some fantastic challenges for families and groups.
Hopefully this gives you some ideas to keep you and your muchkins happy for the rest of the holidays!
