I’ve spent the last year or so getting ready for home-based school holidays and it’s really paying off. I enjoyed these school hols more than any other.
Here’s how the holidays roll at our place:
I let the kids do their own thing about 60% of the time. If they get bored, I tell them that only boring people are bored and they quickly race off to find something to do because at our house they know what being boring is the worst thing ever.
I’m ready with my lists of top things to do when I want to get involved in finding them something to do:
We do just one ‘special’ activity a week – these hols we went to the city each week, roaming the botanical gardens in week one and taking ferry rides week two. Both freebies, I might add. Check out this post for loads more ideas: 13 really nice (mostly free) days out with the kids.
Here are my girls loving the ferry:
Reading – Jamie’s Comfort Food. I can’t get enough.
Writing – my blog roll. I missed it so – every blog needs a blog roll.Well, mine is back… look it up via ‘Blog Life / Daily(ish) reads”
Making – Oobleck with the girls, I am a sucker for punishment…
Wishing – the spring blossoms lasted for longer, our garden is especially wonderful this time of year.
Loving – Bren at 13 Acres.
Wondering – why I can’t stop nibbling, although I am getting so much better at managing it.
Enjoy the long weekend and back to school on Tuesday (is that just NSW?). Here we go with the lunch boxes…
