Thursday - OUT AND ABOUT!

Ok, so the weather is not very conducive to being 'out and about' at the moment, but put these ideas somewhere ready for a gorgeous sunny day!

- Your local park (not my local park though.......lots of glass littered through the tanbark :( ). The park at Chifley shops is currently being updated. You can even grab a coffee & cake from the bakery and walk across the carpark to the park. I did it a couple of weeks ago and had a good chat with some other mums/grandmas! Then there is always Adventure Playground at Kambah. Weston park is fabulous too - and you can even end the day with a train ride. Gordon Park is also a good one - with equipment for older kids too.

- Libraries

- Sight Seeing.....why leave it to non-Canberrans to see all that is on offer? Regatta Point, walk around Lake Burley Griffin, the Corillian, Parliament House, Black Mountain Peninsula

- Tidbinbilla (entry fee required) has some wonderful walks, a great playgound and information centre.

- If you want something a little extra special (and with an extra cost) you could try: Questacon, Cockinton Green, The Zoo & Aquarium, Dinosaur Museum.

- Or grab a fishing line, tin of corn and head down to your local lake to try your luck!

  1. or a wet weather idea is tranform their bedroom. I use old sheets and the "recyling" or pillows. We have made a moonscape by putting every cushion on pillow in the house on the floor covered it in a queen bedsheet and set up the toys as aliens. Get them into craft by making space ships and lunar bases out of the recyling.

    We have also made the bunk beds into a theatre (enclosed it all but one end), and put on puppet shows with toys.
