Keep the Kids Happy these Holidays
Occupying the kids over the school holidays is easy with the launch of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games 15th anniversary themed Kids in the Park program. Now in its 11th year, Kids in the Park is a winner with kids of all ages. With over 70 activities, Kids in the Park has the biggest range of school holiday activities in Sydney. Activities will run daily for the entire duration of the holidays (19 September to 5 October), and there are options for kids of all ages, interests and budgets.

Along with the free activities, there are heaps of other things to do that will suit kids of all ages and interests, with 17 activities good value at less than $25.00 per child.

Creative kids can get their fill of all things arty with some cool, crafty activities including pizza and pasta making, sand art, writing, film festival, cookie making and art classes. Notably, kids aged 10-15 will have the opportunity to learn how to create a story as well as produce, shoot and edit their own movie and film soundtrack, at the Media Literacy and Digital Filmmaking Workshop.
