Be A Fun Mum This School Holidays

September 17, 2010

School holidays are here!  Our family isn’t going away but I have planned a fun time for the children. Art classes, train ride, bike riding, visiting friends and just hanging at home is what our break looks like.  If you are looking for ideas to keep your child/ren entertained for the school holidays, you can search previous posts here on Be A Fun Mum.  Below you will find posts related to play, activities, holidays and fun.

Holidays: Because holidays are about creating memories of an overwhelmingly happy childhood.

Yeah, I get like that too, but I find that if I plan a little, it goes much smoother.

Thanks for the tips ;-)

Although, I don’t think I should take your advice on dropping the standards of the house, it is already a little scary! Might be a good time for us to put things back together a bit LOL

Funny you should say that… after I wrote that I thought to myself… um, can it get any more relaxed at the moment… LOL Your comment really made me laugh Sarah.
