Term 3 has flown by and again, I am the most excited person in our household about holidays! GIven there are only 4 more sleeps, I thought it was high time I posted some activities that are happening around Melbourne. Check out the links below for some spring time fun;
Little Melbourne - excellent resource for all the latest happenings in and around Melbourne for babies, toddlers and children.
National Trust - Jump into spring with 2 great Trust Kids events these holidays
Museum Victoria - The spring school holiday program at the Museum and Scienceworks look exciting with new exhibits. We will definitely by checking out Mathamazing.
Weekly Fire Safety Display - I know I have posted this before, but it really is a fantastic morning out. The MFB put on a brilliant display including using the jaws of life, rescuing people, a turn of the firehouse, the list goes on. And of course it is educational and free (you do need to call and book). Brilliant.
Melbourne Zoo - any of the Melbourne Zoo visits are always a huge hit in our family. We recently visited the Healesville Sanctuary, and if you have't been in a while, the refurbishments happening there are well worth a visit. The birds of prey show is still a stand out of the visit, but the new platypus show is also fantastic.
Happy Holidays to all!
The holidays are only 3 more sleeps and I cannot wait! There is a very good chance I am more excited than the children. If you are beginning to wonder how to entertain your darlings over the holidays, there are some suggested activities in and around Melbourne in the links below. Don't forget to buy some Easter Eggs from the table in the kindy foyer - $4 a bag. Easter shopping and supporting our kinder in one hit, fabulous!!
Little Melbourne - excellent resource for all the latest happenings in and around Melbourne for babies, toddlers and children. Their Bumper School Holiday Guide is well worth a look.
Ripponlea Easter Fun Day - There will be plenty of activities to enjoy - boat rides on the lake, a variety of outdoor games and the Mansion will also be open for all to explore. There is also an Easter Egg Hunt - what more could you want?
Scienceworks - celebrates 21 years of science this month. Join the festivities these school holidays - there will be something for the whole family.
Immigration Museum - is celebrating Easter traditions from around the world these school holidays; make sure you hop on in and join the fun.
Weekly Fire Safety Display - How I have not heard about this great display sooner, I have no idea. I took the children last holidays and it is fabulous. The MFB put on a brilliant display including using the jaws of life, rescuing people, a turn of the firehouse, the list goes on. And of course it is educational and free (you do need to call and book). Brilliant.
Babar the Elephant - This concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre tells the much loved story of Babar the Elephant and is appropriate for children age 4 and older. Performance is on Wednesday the 3rd of April at 11.30am.
So the count down has begun.... The staff are hard at work planning the end of year celebrations. All class parties will be held in the last week of term - see 'Diary Dates' for more info.
