Free Printable School Holiday Planner

BY ON Jul 3, 2012

 

Here in Western Australia it has been a long 11 week term for us and my kids and I are ready for a break!  Our friends in other parts of Australia started their school holidays nearly 2 weeks ago and as they plan to go back for Term 3, we are just starting to plan for 2 weeks off.

 

With the winter July school holidays, kids are generally more housebound with the weather.  Even though we try to take every opportunity to go outside when the sun comes out, we need a few tricks and activities up our sleeve to help keep the kids entertained.

I thought I would share with you a free printable holiday planner that I use when planning ideas and activities to keep the kids entertained and stimulated.  Here are a few ideas to get you started!

GIANT DRAWING

 

Join sheets of paper together with sticky tape to form a large canvas to lay out on the floor for drawing.  Leave the paper out for days and watch as the drawings become more elaborate.  Read more…..
