yesterday

marked the end of term one
& to celebrate i packed a picnic lunch, change of clothes for my school girl, bathers & towels just in case & we enjoyed making the most of the melbourne sunshine & warmth. it was the perfect way to start relaxing & getting into the groove of the school holidays!







last week we made a list of 'things to do' {like go to the library, ice cream shop, movies} cut them into strips & have placed them in a bowl. on the days we don't have plans already the girls can choose a piece of paper from the bowl & that decides what we will do that day!

what are your hot tips for making the most of the school holidays?

  1. This photo series truly made me smile - love the pink!

    As for holidays, we've done the same thing too but made it into a lucky dip so that although there are lots of fun things to do, you never know which one will get pulled out - works well as long as there are lots of sunny days....wet weather sometimes requires a second dip.

    Happy holidays!
