Having Grown Up in Melbourne my whole life I like to think I know a thing or two about our great city. Although I live in the South East I am passionate about fun family days out and keen to bring them to the foreground. Looking forward to sharing.

Fun and Educational
Do School Holidays sometimes leave you scratching your head trying to figure out how to keep your kids amused? Well fear not! We may just have the answer!

Seeing Eye Dogs Australia is holding a school holiday program these holidays. What an absolutely paw-fect way to entertain and educate your children.

Costing just $40, children can participate in this unique school holiday program where they can view Seeing Eye Puppies playing in their very own Puppy Play centre. They will be able to interact with these gorgeous animals in training, and take a good tour of the home of these very special dogs. From this, they will learn what an important role these dogs will play in the community.

This program also includes a cooking class, where kids can bake dogs biscuits to take home for their own furry friend. They also learn about sensory experiences, where they experience what it is like for someone that is blind. This will help children have a new understanding of the important role these dogs play in the lives of someone who does not have sight.

A booking is secured once payment has been processed over the phone via credit card. Receipt and booking confirmation details will be sent out by email. Please note there are no walk ins on the day due to the above mentioned.

All proceeds will go directly back into Seeing Eye Dogs Australia, to help get more Seeing Eye dogs, and help those who are blind, or who have low vision.

I strongly urge you to book in for this amazing opportunity. Not only will you be helping such a worthy cause with funding, but you will be enriching your child with knowledge that will be with them always.
