School Holiday Tips

school holiday tips

Our primary school kids finished term one at 1pm today.  It was short term, but my kids (and me) are all very much looking forward to slow mornings, pottering about and having some fun.

I have written a number of posts on school holidays over the years, so thought I would collate them in a post for those looking for some inspiration or tips for the school holidays.

    Thanks for first of all, writing these posts, and then going back and finding them again :)
    I have 3 girls aged 8, 4 and 1 and it can be tricky finding activities that they can all do, but I know they would love building guys and roasting marshmallows indoors like your kids did.
