The first term break for the school year is fast approaching. Who knew that term 1 would be a mere 8 weeks long? A tiny benefit of the school holidays is generally less traffic during peak hour on the roads. Although I barely drive in peak hour these days!

If I am totally honest, most of the inspiration for these ideas have come from my own childhood. I used to bat a balloon back and forth with my brother in the lounge room. Make sure you remember to move the valuables! Sleepovers happened at least once a week during the school holidays. My brother and I used to spend quite a bit of time at our neighbour’s house while our parents were at work. At our neighbour’s we would put on performances, bake or sew a creation with a little help.

I do wish that we had the chance to go to more places and visit different things during the holidays when I was younger, rather than having made our own fun at home. But I wouldn’t change it for the world.

All of the items on this list are suitable for all ages. Most of them also make for great family outings or activities. The activities don’t require much equipment. And best of all, most of them cost next to nothing!
