Entertaining the kids on a budget

December 23rd, 2011 -

Keeping the children busy over the school holidays needn’t cost you anything – there is plenty to do in your own backyard for next to nothing!

The great New Zealand outdoors has many attractions and they are there for us to enjoy. The Department of Conservation has a whole section on its website dedicated to activities and places you can enjoy with your children – Click here to view.

Your local library is also a fantastic resource. With a library card you child has access to whole world of books, music and movies. During the school holidays most libraries offer a free reading programme, which may include story teller sessions. Check with your local library or go to its website to see what is happening.

And then there is always one of New Zealand’s great beaches, parks, playgrounds or simply the backyard to keep the children entertained. Don’t forget to ‘slip, slop and slap’!
