Melbourne Weekend: Keeping the Kidlets Entertained


It’s cold!  It’s raining!  It’s wet!  It’s windy!  Welcome to the Melbourne winter.

As adults we tend to enjoy the cold winter days and nights as it’s an excuse to hibernate, cook delicious food and possibly save some money (if you’re not a victim to the amazing winter fashion Melbourne offers).  However, if you have kids these winter months are a whole different ball game.  Activities (besides watching Frozen) are few and far between and often involve coats, gloves, bright coloured umbrella’s and equally as bright coloured gumboots.  Oh yes and there is that ever waging war against snotty noses. 

Each Friday I will be rolling out information on what you can do with those gumboot wearing, snotty nosed, puddle loving little people we choose to call our own or take care of as a career.   As a professional I know what works and what doesn’t so the below activities are hand picked. Click the links for more information.

I have also included a little something for us adults which is for a good cause.

‘The Very Special Kids’ is a charity organisation that offers support services to families who are caring for a child that has been diagnosed with a life threatening condition or that are experiencing the loss and grief of losing a child to a life threatening condition.  ‘The Very Special Kids’ are holding a fashion sale event at Malvern Town Hall this weekend with Australian and European brands and up to 90% off.  Credit cards at the ready!  There will a gold coin donation at the door but all going to a good cause.

What are you up to this weekend?  Please let me know if you’re aware of any other events that might be of interest.

Happy weekending!
