C&G’s Guide to Entertaining Kids During the Holidays

Victorian school holidays have begun. The last few months have been a whirlwind, and the little ones are surely anticipating some new and exciting activities. Fortunately, the easing of lockdown restrictions, means we can start enjoying the unique attractions Melbourne has to offer. This latest C&G blog rounds up some exciting events your family can look forward to.

Catch a Classic

The Classic Cinemas in Elsternwick is back in full swing. If you’re lucky you can catch an excellent deal during opening week – $10 tickets! If your family misses the movies, you can now enjoy the latest Hollywood blockbusters as well as the cult classics again. There will be social distancing measures in place, contactless payments, and plenty of hand sanitiser to keep you safe!

Toy Store Day Trip

Spend a day checking out the best toy stores across Melbourne. This list – courtesy of Time Out – contains some niche and vintage options, which can be enjoyed by the kids and adults! The animal lovers amongst us will certainly enjoy the Lost Forests in Docklands. It’s a life-sized forest that lets the kids search for and “adopt” their own plush pet! This is also perfect if you’re looking for unique gifts that aren’t the usual dolls or action figures.

St Kilda Adventure Playground

Notice some sunshine coming up on your weather app? It’s time to check out the St Kilda Adventure Playground on Neptune Street! It’s a true adventure with a big aeroplane, trampolines, pirate ship, flying fox and plenty more attractions. Kids of all ages will enjoy hours of fun here!

Just Stay in

The weather’s going to get colder, whether we like it or not! On those especially chilly days, perhaps the best idea is to just stay in and enjoy some rugged up family bonding time. Don’t forget to check out C&G’s Guide to Entertaining Your Kids at Home for some fun suggestions. From commitment-free games to new podcasts and cooking recipes, there’s guaranteed to be something that will keep the little ones happy!
