School Holiday Activities for the Easter Break

Ahhh school holidays. They stretch almost endlessly before us. Coming up with inspiration every single day can be hard work. Kids can be demanding and there is nothing worse than a bored child.

With this in mind, we have found some school holiday activities for the Easter break. From free to low cost and some more expensive. They span right across Brisbane, so we hope that you find tons of fun ahead of you for you and your family.

1. Paw Patrol at Skygate

Skygate DFO is offering a Paw Patrol themed craft station outside Woolworths from 8th to 12th April. Kids can decorate masks and there will be a Skye and Chase meet and greet.

2. Kids Collective at Roma Street Parklands

During the school holidays there are free activities for kids aged 5-12 years old. Kids can grow their own seedling, kick a soccer ball, create arts and craft masterpieces plus more. Activities are held from 9am-1pm, Thursday to Saturday, during school holidays. There are two classes to choose from on any given day and bookings are not required.
