Top 10 Fun Activities To Do With The Kids These School Holidays
The school holidays are almost upon us. That means you’ll soon have the kids on your hands for two whole weeks! Never fear, we’ve put together a handy list of our top 10 things to do with the kids these school holidays. Have a read if you’re looking for a few fun outing ideas that everyone is bound to love.
The Brand New Whale Playground at Scarborough Beach
Inspired by local Noongar culture and featuring a blue whale skeleton as its main theme, the new $1.4 million Whale Playground at Scarborough Beach is no run-of-the-mill swings and slide affair.
Having an amazing new playground right next to the ocean allows you to combine two awesome activities into one fantastic outing. Hit the beach for a quick dip and then let the kids go wild on this amazing adventure playground. There’s also plenty of great cafes and restaurants nearby to grab a coffee or some lunch, so it really does have everything you need in the one location.
Most kids love climbing trees, so why not help them take it to the next level? At Trees Adventure in Dwellingup you can get them away from the computer/TV and out getting some extremely enjoyable exercise in the great outdoors. Their two hour sessions include all safety equipment, training and access to a range of different tree rope and ziplining experiences. You can even hire a GoPro and take some priceless memories home with you (you know, they type of thing that’ll be great to show at their 21st birthday party).
Worried about the kids clowning around on you? At CirQuest’s School Holiday Circus Classes, this energy can be put to good use having a great time and learning some new skills. Each class involves a huge variety of different activities designed to provide each child with the best possible learning experience that matches their interests and skill levels. With a range of classes to suit ages 2 to 15, the whole clan will be able to get involved. Who knows, it could be the start of their path to Cirque du Soleil!
We all get tempted just to lock the kids in a room every now and again, but at Escape Hunt in Fremantle they’ll actually look forward to it! Set in late 20th Century Australia, The Young Wizard’s Quest is a magical game in which the players must work together to find a solution and save the magical world from being exposed to the ‘Wuffles’. Older children/teens can also partake of their regular escape room games as well.
Looking for a great day trip idea? Look no further than Whiteman Park. Boasting attractions like Caversham Wildlife Park, a community forest and woodland reserve, transport museum, lolly shop, pedal go-karts, bushwalking trails, BBQs and a variety of tours, the only problem you’ll have is trying to pack it all into just one day!
What’s cooler than being cool? Heading to Xtreme Ice Arena for a day of icey fun, that’s what! Grab some skates or check out their Bumper Cars On Ice – it’s the only venue in the southern hemisphere to offer this super cool (literally) activity.
Think trampolines are fun? What if we told you that there was a massive indoor trampoline adventure playground in Perth just waiting for your kids to come and bounce themselves silly on? Featuring a free jump arena, slam dunk area, high performance, dodgeball, x-park, cliff jump and super tramp – to name just a few – it’s almost more excitement than your kids can handle. Book a single session or save some money on a multi visit pass. We guarantee that the kids will want to come back more than once!
Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s quirky, imaginative brand of children’s entertainment is the perfect way to entertain the kids while firing their imaginations. The Night Zoo is a production that explores the special connection between humans & animals and is designed to teach kids the importance of empathy and caring for living things. They’re running two shows every weekday for the duration of the holidays, so book online now.
The Royal Show
This much loved annual event – running in the first week of the holidays – is always a solid bet for some school holiday fun. With all manner of performances, rides, activities and animals to check out it’s almost impossible not to have a great time. Throw in a show bag full of sweet treats and you’re bound to be in contention for parent of the year!
Whether you think you might have a future sports star on your hands or you simply want to encourage your kids to have some fun and get some exercise, The Kids Sports Club at HBF Stadium offers everything from mini Olympics to hip hop dancing, water polo, basketball netball, ultimate frisbee, dodgeball and more.
