These free activities will keep your children entertained, and your wallet unopened.
With school holidays just around the corner, it's time to plan a few fun activities to entertain the children. But with a total of 14 days of no school, the activities can easily take a large chunk of money out of your bank account. This is not ideal, especially when we're less than three months out from Christmas (sorry for the reminder).
Why not incorporate some free activities into your child's school holiday schedule. Of course, going for long walks, trips to the park, and visits to the beach would be perfect for the upcoming spring holidays, but we have also found some exciting events happening around Adelaide that will keep your children entertained.
The Adelaide Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Adelaide mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
