This can put a strain on emotional, spiritual and financial resources.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of great school holiday activities that won’t cost you a cent.
Head along to the Cockburn Cultural Fair on Saturday April 22 where you will be inspired by the diversity of foods, traditions and cultures in this wonderful city. Get hands-on with arts and craft workshops, visit the food and market stalls, learn about sustainability and be amazed by the Cockburn’s Got Talent final. The event takes place from 10am until 4pm on Harmony Oval, Harmony Avenye in Atwell.
Get along to Karrinyup Shopping Centre these school holidays for a fantastic jungle gym. Suitable for kids 3-12, sessions will be every 20 mins during peak periods. Kids can climb the ropes like a monkey, fly through the tunnels like a toucan and immerse themselves in the indoor jungle playground. Please click here for the Jungle Gym rules of entry. The Jungle Gym will be open in the Food Court from 12pm to 5pm daily.
Lakeside Joondalup is the place to be in the first week of the holidays, with free kids’ entertainment in the Great Space – including face painting. There will also be balloon twisting by Perth’s premier balloon artist, Aaron Smyth. Proceedings run from the 10-15th of April, but not Good Friday (April 14th).
