Sing it with me now, Madonna style… “Holidayyy”! We draw the line at the whole “Celebrate!” section of the song though, because school holidays mean two weeks of racking your brains trying to come up with entertainment for the littlies!

We know that it can be SUPER FUN, but also tough… so we’ve put together a list of some places to go, things to do, and people to see, which will leave the kids satisfied (and hopefully a little exhausted, so you get some me-time when they’re sleeping too).

Enjoy! xx
