School Holiday Activities for Shire kids!
Well it may still feel like Summer in Sydney but we are coming up to Autumn school holidays! Yay! (i'm sure some parents are groaning) but we have put together a little cheat sheet if you will, of some awesome school holiday activities for the kiddies (and for your sanity) in the Sutherland Shire.
One Off Studio on Cambrai Avenue in Engadine run kids workshops and art classes all year round, but they always put some great ones on in the school holidays, for both primary and high school aged children. Located next to the yummy Hugh John Manors, their workshops are great for creative kids who love art and want to learn more. These holidays they are running Pouring Workshops - teaching kids resin artworks! Yes we all know how much we love when the children bring home their 'craft projects' - but this is actually something you will want to display (sorry kids!). Email email@example.com to secure your place.
I mentioned above just how crazy warm this weather has been for this time of year, so what better way to spend the school holidays than learning to surf! Cronulla Surf Academy run school holiday 4 day programs at Wanda Beach with different sessions and options each day.
Funky Planet in Caringbah have a huge range of school holiday activities for kids aged 4-12yrs. They also have the added option of full day bookings - where the kids participate in 3 different workshops. With things like Unicorn craft and high tea, science workshops, singing and dancing days and creative craft ideas they really do have something for everyone.
What kid wouldn't love Bubble Soccer? And let me tell you parents, it's also really funny to watch! Run at the indoor sports centre in Menai, and on everyday in the school holidays.
Why not hit up Sutherland Leisure centre and try out the Giant water inflatable? Head up there Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays these school holidays, between 11.30am and 2.30pm and have a go!
Now surely all us local Mum's will remember our childhood parties at Skate Plus (sadly missed, never forgotten) but now there is roller skating fun for our kids! Taren Point rollerskating club operate out of Menai indoor sports centre, and have Roller disco's and Learn to Skate workshops in the school holidays! Ah the memories.....
Acrogym are also running school holiday classes for kids out of Menai Indoor centre (seriously, it's all happening over at Menai) with beginners and advanced options it's a great way to try Acro for the first time.
Catering for ages 6 to 18 yrs Hazelhurst Art Gallery in Gymea have a great range of creative workshops for any budding artist. Classes in the school holidays include Drawing, painting, sculpture and digital media workshops. Check them out here
Enjoy the school holidays guys!
