  • We got given a family zoo membership which we love. It means we can go whenever we want for however long we want. We let each child pick one animal to visit and we see those animals, usually have lunch then see an animal mum or dad choose and then head home.

  • how about ask them what they would rally like to do.
    let them pick 1 gift from the gift shop where you go to so they can remember the place for longer.
    as it shouldn’t matter where you go as long as you all enjoy it and have fun.
    Pancake palla ( spelt wrong sorry) for breakfast then down to the beach for a swim then get ice creams after and a picnic lunch,
    then once home have a Christmas movie and some fun.
    hope you enjoy what ever you end up doing our boys want to go to a motor cross track ( not sure any one will be riding on Christmas but ) so we are going when next big ride day is on

  • Great idea – less junk to clutter up the home and need to get packed away!

    Some other ideas – water playgound, art gallery, ferry or other boat ride, indoor trampoline centre, science discovery centre, indoor play centre, bush walk in a special place.

  • A visit to a zoo, or museum, even take them out to a posh place to eat, is a unique experience for little ones. A trip to explore caves if there are caves within driving distance. If you live near water, try some boating or sailing. A pantomime or something at a theater. The family may enjoy armature productions of ballet etc. Horse riding, camel trekking for a few hours or a day is fun for everyone.
    The whole family may like to go on a camping trip. You can also go to your tourist information center in your town and you may be surprised what is available when you become a tourist in your home town or nearby! For some activities you may like to not take the two year old.

  • We are doing a zoo experience for out older 2 and the younger one is getting a behind the doors at the local sea life
