Fun in the School Holidays

It can be hard to keep the kids entertained throughout the Winter School Holidays, especially if it’s cold outside, but there is a lot of fun to be had in the many shopping centres and markets around Melbourne. Here’s just some of the suggestions we’ve seen for keeping the kids entertained these School Holidays!

Fun & Games at Southland Shopping Centre

Whilst your grabbing a coffee and a slice of cake at Southland Shopping Centre, the kids can throw some shapes and snowballs with a reward of a Chocolate Gingerbread Person at the end.

Silent School Disco

The kids can bust a move in the pop-up disco on level 2, near Village Cinema. with DJ Josh pumping out the tunes, but only the kids able to hear them. Each child will be given their own set of special cordless headphones so they can dance up a storm at their own private disco. It will be great entertainment for all, with the kids dancing away to tunes that no-one else can hear.
