Enjoy a week of mayhem and memories with the kids in town

With the school holidays just around the corner, you know that you need to prepare for when your little ones are tugging on your pants asking to be entertained. Luckily, we have you covered. Don't call the babysitter or turn on the TV to keep your child stimulated, head to a different restaurant or event throughout the week and get ready for some family fun. Here is a seven-day guide to the school holidays that will take all of the hard work out of figuring what to do so you can focus on packing the car.

Just because your kid isn’t at school doesn’t mean they have to stop learning. Starting on Tuesday the 7th, the Science Friction Workshop at the Science Centre and Planetarium will teach your kids about speed, friction and traction. But don’t worry; if you can’t make it to the workshop your child won’t miss out, as there are a number of different workshops throughout the week.
