If you are anything like me, you are probably feeling a little bit over the hot weather. Even when it is a bit cooler, it is pouring with rain! Trying to find indoor activities to keep the kids entertained and stop you from pulling your hair out, can be tough on us Mums!
Here is another idea to add to your repertoire of awesome indoor activities. Ice Skating! There is an Iceworld Olympic Ice Rink located at Acacia Ridge and Boondall, with family friendly prices and a welcoming escape from the heat and rain.
I have to admit that one of the draw cards for ice skating is to see how adorable the little people in my life look in puffy jackets. We don't get many chances in Brisbane to see this!
Iceworld caters to both beginners and experts from ages three and up. Make sure you dress for cold weather with long pants, jumper, socks and gloves. But once you are inside, there is a skate shop where you can hire everything else you need.
Ice skating sessions are open to the public seven days a week and 362 days a year. See here to find session times to suit you.
With cheap skate sessions starting from just $11 per person, see here for a full list of pricing, including 'coffee skate' which to me sounds awesome.

If you are looking for a new sport, why not give ice sports a try? Iceworld offers classes in ice hockey, curling, figure skating, speed skating and synchronised skating. It is not just for the kids either. Adults can definitely participate. My husband did ice hockey for years and it was so fun to go along and cheer him on.

Iceworld also has a skate school if you think that your ice skating skills may need to be a bit more up to scratch before zooming around with a hockey stick and puck.
