Australian School Holidays Kids
Australia School Holidays

Hi guys,

We know many of you have kids who are now home on school holidays and so do we… so we thought we’d send out a list of the resources we have gathered so far to help keep everyone entertained. We have tried to list only activities that are available for free. There are so many people and organisations working to bring us these resources. It’s amazing what people are sharing. We hope you love them as much as we do.
