50 ideas for kids to have fun (and learn!) this summer


Parents and carers who are keen to keep their children entertained during the summer holidays can now search for ideas in a new online resource.

After a long period of school closures due to the covid-19 pandemic, families who may need new ideas to keep children and young people occupied during the summer can find a new list of more than 50 budget-friendly activities on the Learning At Home website.

From building a fort to making paper airplanes, the website aims to offer ideas to suit all budgets, while helping children make and develop their creative and physical skills.

The web page also includes links to videos and instructions to help families with the activities.

“I hope that all children and families enjoy their well-deserved summer break, especially after the challenges they have faced while learning from home due to the covid-19 pandemic,"Education Minister Senator Tracey Vallois said.

“The Learning At Home website has proven to be a very important resource for families during the pandemic.

"I’m delighted to hear of the update with positive, helpful information and tips, to keep children and young people occupied during the summer holidays.”
