Create school holiday fun at home

Sometimes, the best adventures can be found without leaving the house. For those days when the kids (or you) are craving a quieter pace, these at-home activities can help to keep the holiday spirit alive:

Crafting day

A crafting day is a great way to let the kids’ creativity shine and keep them busy when you need a bit of quiet. Start by planning out your day to include a variety of fun activities like painting, beadwork and scrapbooking, then head to Big W and Kmart to stock up on all sorts of craft supplies. Think coloured paper, markers, glue and beads. Premade craft kits are great for more structured projects.

DIY movie night 

Who doesn’t love a good movie? Transform your living room into a cosy movie theatre in a few simple steps. Think comfy cushions, blankets and maybe even some fairy lights for that extra magical touch. Upgrade the experience by making a DIY movie snack box loaded with everything the kids will love, including sweet treats, savoury bites and a drink with a straw. 

Grab all the movie snack box essentials from Coles and Woolworths, including popcorn, chocolate, lollies and drinks. Then, arrange them in a caddy (available from Kmart) or an old lunch box to create the ultimate movie-watching experience.

Finding joy in the simple things can often lead to the most memorable moments, especially during the school holidays.
