As the large school holidays are coming up are there any recommendations for fun programs - I have three children 6,8 and 10 and need to cover a number of days for work as well as looking for stuff for them to do while I am off with them so I don't go nuts by the end original.gif
Appreciate any ideas

Are you near a Bunnings store? They usually have free craft and also a kid's playground. on set days only. Ours is Sat, Sun, Tues and Thursdays in school holidays. We can easily spend 1 hour there and not spend a cent!

tennis camps are the least expensive option in our area, and some places give discounts for siblings. They run school hours and are really good value because kids do sport, learn something and there is plenty of social interaction.
