Just the other day, my mate Dave was knee-deep in the Living Room "Rainforest".

His kids, Lily and Sam, had embarked on an adventure straight out of a "Bluey" episode...

Turning cushions into mountain ranges and blankets into jungle canopies.

There, amidst the chaos, Dave was the designated jungle guide, leading this merry band of explorers on a quest for hidden treasures and mystical creatures.

This escapade wasn't just about keeping the kids entertained;

It was a lesson in...


Patience, and...

Seeing the world through the eyes of his kids.

Here's what I learned from Dave's story which I thought might give you some ideas too:

A School Holiday Survival Guide:

🌿 Themed Adventures:

  • Use everyday items to create a theme, like a jungle, space station, or a fairy castle.
  • Encourage kids to contribute ideas, making it a collaborative project.

🗺️ Structured Yet Flexible:

  • Plan a mix of structured activities and free play.
  • Include time for crafts, story-telling, or family movie sessions.

👫 Empowering Young Minds:

  • Involve children in planning and decision-making.
  • Let them lead a day's activity or choose a game.

🌼 Parental Time-Outs:

  • Find moments for self-care and relaxation.
  • Use quiet times for your hobbies or a relaxing cuppa.

🎉 Celebrating Every Moment:

  • Remember, we only get a handful of school holidays before our kids prefer adventures with friends.
  • Make the most of these days, crafting memories that will last a lifetime.

👶 For the Little Ones:

  • If your kiddos aren't in school yet and this is your everyday norm, hats off to you!
  • As a token of admiration, send us a reply email for 15% off our recently released Family Indoor Activity Deck - perfect for squashing school holiday boredom!

In the whirlwind of the school holidays, let's not forget the essence of these days...

The laughter, the mess, the spontaneous dances, and the late-night storytelling. ✨

They're fleeting moments, but the memories and stories...

(like Dave's tales of the Living Room Rainforest) 

Will last long after the holidays have passed! 👏
