This Christmas, why not escape the subtropical summer heat inside an enormous inflatable snow globe? I can't think of a better way to embrace the spirit of Christmas, and children of all ages will have tons of fun throwing "snow" at each other.

Snow globe/ igloo at Toombul Shopping Centre

Actually, we thought the whole structure looked more like a huge see-through igloo, as the kids waited to enter the side doorway. See-through igloo aside, they couldn't wait to roll in the "snow", and throw it at the blow up snow man and of course, each other. The "snow" was made of ripped up plastic, but the effect of falling snow was quite realistic - and they walked around all day with "snow flakes" stuck in their hair.

After the snow globe, visit Winter Wonderland

After a good amount of snow play, we headed to "Winter Wonderland" to visit Santa and admire his North Pole Castle, surrounded by thousands of fairy lights. If you wish, you can have your photo taken with Santa ($25 or $35 packages) in front of his ice castle, and they have some practical garden themed toys to offer the kids brave enough to sit on Santa's knee.

Winter Wonderland's Magical Castle

Toombul Shopping Centre have done a great job setting up a truly magical Christmas display with a miniature toy train, a little bridge, a wishing well, glowing penguins, glowing reindeer and plenty of snow covered pine trees. The snow globe and winter wonderland are both free activities for all the family to enjoy. Make sure you take your letters to Santa to post in the lovely red mail box and have a wonderful Christmas.
