What are some fun ideas for outdoor games for kids?
Adrenaline offers summer activities for kids of all ages to revel in, both in house and the great outdoors. If you’re based in Queensland, maximise your kids’ fun in the sun with a Seven-Day Super Pass to all the major theme parks, including Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World and Wet’n’Wild on the Gold Coast. The little ones will love the Seal Encounter and Park Entry at Mooloolaba. This exclusive offer provides the chance for educational activities for the kids to learn about the dietary and lifestyle habits of sea lions, but also some loving affection in the form of a kiss and cuddle with these gentle marine creatures. Remember this magical moment with a professional photograph to frame and cherish, which is included in the cost.
When in NSW, there is an abundance of opportunities to choose from and if you want some outdoor fun Adrenaline can help. Great summer activities for the older kids who deserve a special treat include a 30-minute scenic helicopter ride for two, high above Olympic Park and awe-inspiring Sydney Harbour. The ultimate bonus is not limited to this thrill-seeking ride, but also the addition of a third person flying free of charge. This unforgettable holiday school activity makes the perfect gift idea for tweens with high-flying tastes. However, kids as young as five can also take to the skies in helicopter style if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The Taronga Zoo park entry and two-day pass for a hop on, hop off Sydney Harbour cruise provides eye-opening, educational and affordable family fun. Then channel their inner Bear Grylls with a special holiday outing that they’ll yearn to relive long after its back to school.
Adrenaline’s Canyoning and Abseiling, full-day package, at the majestic Blue Mountains is the makings of real-life adventure seekers. Children aged 10 and older can take part in a day split between canyoning and multi-pitch abseiling down waterfalls, water jumps, swims and slides to top any water park experience!
There’s comprehensive training provided and a delicious lunch is also included in this exhilarating day out.
Or high-fliers will delight in the Illawarra Fly Treetop Zipline experience, which embodies skills, dexterity and rip-roaring school holiday thrills. Horse riding, swimming with dolphins and seals, scenic flights, abseiling, quad and mountain biking, hiking and bush walks, jungle swings, caving, Segway tours, trapeze, stunt training, Skywalks and so much more in store has been custom designed for exuberant fun in the sun.
What are some energy-consuming indoor activities for kids?
Rainy days can be a boon rather than a downer for the young ones when they indulge in a range of engaging, energy-consuming and educational activities provided by Adrenaline. When in Melbourne, budding marine biologists will be able to thrill kids with heart-pounding exhilaration of a shark dive at the Melbourne Aquarium.
This half-day experience of coming face to face with Grey Nurse, Sandbar Whaler Sharks and giant stingrays, fully accompanied and expertly guided, within the 2.2-litre oceanarium is routinely described in testimonials as the “best experience of my life”. Children must be 15 or older to take part, with parent or guardian attendance required for 15 year olds.
For the young ones who are divinely designed to burn off steam, Adrenaline provides indoor skydiving introductory activities at a host of state-of-the-art centres throughout Australia.
Virtuality reality, laser skirmish and other high-tech gaming experiences, thrilling ghost tours, cooking classes and barista courses also make rainy days a pleasure for energetic kids of all ages who enjoy rising to a challenge.
What are some good paper-craft activities for kids?
Young and older kids alike enjoy showing their crafty side at the best of times. Craft activities for the young and young at heart are child’s play at Adrenaline. But there are also countless sustainable and time-consuming paper-craft activities that you can set up in the comfort of your own home.
You can recycle newspapers into eye-catching wall art or transform toilet rolls into mini townships, rocket ships or decorative ice cream cones with the help of water paints, crayons, colouring pencils, paper scraps, removable adhesives and abundant creative resources.
Turn the artwork of your pint-sized Picasso into a paper mobile or equally eye-catching object d’art, with clip art, old photos, crayons and craft mirrors. The whole family will treasure these custom-made masterpieces in the making.
Let’s go fly a kite; even better, a paper one that the kids have made at home. All they will need are an old map (to breathe new life into), towels, frame, twine, string, ribbons and other decorative embellishments. The kids will love you for the idea and impetus and enjoy giving it a whirl in the backyard when the wind picks up.
Clever collages, paper wall pockets, cute pen pals, cool shades and mini menageries are just some of the hundreds of educational and engaging paper-based craft activities you can provide for your nimble-fingered kids during the school holidays.
