Get amongst nature

Get back into nature these school holidays and enjoy the breathtaking views of Western Australia. National parks have reopened their walks and natural formations are ready for visitors. Many tours are taking smaller groups so there's minimal contact with the public.

Have some virtual fun

If you want to exercise caution and stay at home this upcoming holiday period, it doesn't mean the kids will miss out. RedBalloon has introduced a wide range of virtual at-home classes and DIY programs that will bring together fun and a bit of learning.

Learn a new skill

From learning how to ride horseback to cooking classes, you may have a future chef in the family and not even know it! There are a wide range of options available for getting your kids outside and having fun.

Read away the holidays

Combine school holiday fun with productivity and learning with a wide range of kids books that are currently available. If you have kids who love the library or just adore reading, this is sure to keep everyone happy.

Game with friends

The great thing about gaming consoles is that they are available rain, hail or shine. They're perfect for those laid-back days spent at home, or when the weather is not in your favour. With a variety of child-friendly games available, you can sit back and relax.

Settle in for a weekend movie marathon

This is a great way to get the whole family together on a Friday night (or any night for that matter). With thousands of movies to choose from, there'll be something for everyone, as well as new films added daily.

Find hours of fun with board games

This calls for the whole family to get together to play your favourite classic games. Get more bang for your buck by finding a kit that has multiple games in one such as chess, solitaire, checkers and tic-tac-toe.

Keep the kids fit

If you want to ensure the little ones are getting their daily dose of exercise, why not invest into some backyard toys and games that ensure they're making the most of their energy (especially if the sun is out).

Road trips you can take from Perth during the school holidays
