Autumn Holiday fun

07-Apr-2015


By the second week of the winter holidays it’s not unusual for families to be stuck inside and tensions steadily rising!
So change direction – hijack the holiday atmosphere!

The school holidays are the ideal time for those fun, memory-making activities that are so hard to squeeze into the busy working week – So put fun into holiday action.

First strategise your day:
“I want your rooms cleaned by 9:30am.”
 Then we are off on an adventure.
Home for lunch followed by two hours Quiet action like reading etc.  
Then Action again at 3pm before dinner.

Some action ideas:
•    Paint a family mural on a garage or Rumpus room wall.
•    Make a Photo story book of your holiday or family History.

Let the kids loose with a camera all day, prepare the prints, then make the book ‘A Day in the Life of the Carter Family’.

Alternatively, work with your child on a book all about them, with photos, drawings or collage of their favourite things, people, and places.

Even better, ask them what kind of book they’d like to make – whatever it is, it’s guaranteed to be a future family treasure, if it doesn’t get worn out from overuse first!
Search the rock pools at the beach.
Play Barbrador/British Bulldog (Bullrush)in the wet. “Will you surrender to the king of Barbrador?”  (Means ‘Bar the door.’)
Have Fish & Chips on a beach or in the dark in a park.

So change direction – hijack the holiday atmosphere!
Make sure you are driving the holiday programme not your kids.
