Hooray! Hands up, who’s looking forward to the school holidays? No lunches to make, no school dresses to iron and no school pick-up thats flies around faster than you can say, ‘I’ll have a skinny flat white, thanks’.
While there is certainly some joy that comes with the break from school, for many people it means having to find childcare while work continues, having all of your kids at home…while you work or you’re on ‘your holidays’ and might just need a break!
Have a peek at some of my favourite school holiday activities and programs to get the kids creating and moving on the Mornington Peninsula. xLC
