A Whole Lotta Fun!

We are almost through our first week of school holidays here in QLD and Caden declared early on the we had to do fun stuff every single day. Enter in Lotta Magazine and we were certain to do something fun every single day!

I was sent two copies of Lotta magazine to review late last week and Caden set about flipping through the pages to find out what we would be doing for the next two weeks.
This one Mum...

If you haven't hear about Lotta Magazine yet. It is for 5-10 year old kids and is full of school holiday activities. It is Australia's first completely ad-free kids magazine and will be released four times a year for the school holidays. Each issue is built around a theme. The launch issue was stories. The current issue, for the Easter holidays, is The Travel Issue.


We received both. And here are few things out of them that Caden has told me we have to do.

On the top of the list was some cardboard cubby houses, but I am still trying to track down some boxes!
 

Then he would like to make a stackable city!
  
But there are tonnes of ideas in this wonderful little magazine and we will certainly be doing a majority of them.

If you would like to check out more info on Lotta Magazine you can find them at the following places:



And guess what? If you are stumped for ideas these holidays you could enter to win a copy of each of the issues featured in this post. I also have a runners up prize of your choice of one of the issues (Stories or Travel) To enter simply complete the rafflecopter widget below.

  12. We enjoy going to the local beach, parks, have picnics and doing craft. This mag looks great and very practical. My boys love craft & we're always looking for new ideas.

  15. I try to make each day interesting; some of the things we do are: visit the local library and join in their holiday crafts, do crafts at home, catch up with friends, have a picnic at the park, or do baking. This sounds like a great magazine!

  16. We have 7 kids at home, so simply put- lots! The kids normally go from activity to activity- they make cubbies, create little make believe games, go on the computer, draw, playdough, lego etc. We are also going away to a holiday house for a week this holidays so lots of outings, swimming and beach visits on the agenda :)

  17. We love the lack of routine during holidays. Sleep ins. Pajama days. Dress ups. Meeting dad for lunch on the lawn of his offices. Fun!

  18. We have sleep-overs at Grandma's house, play board games and electronic games at home, go to the cinema, go out for 'treat' lunches, and wear our pyjamas until lunchtime. Routine goes down the drain and the kids love it!
