17th Sunday of the year – 24th July 2011

Go back in time Try a day without electricity, but with a BBQ;
Camp in the garden Tell each other stories by torchlight;
Visit your local tourist attractions In local Tourist Information Office find free local attractions never visited;
Organise your own mini Olympics: Invite friends to an assault course in the garden - Have skipping, Wellington boot throwing jumping or leap-frogging contests and an egg and spoon race;
A movie night with snacks;
Make a water slide: On hot days put up a slide in the garden with a long piece of plastic sheeting at the bottom. Hose down the sheeting with a garden hose and washing up liquid and wait for the fun: Grow sunflowers - each plants a sunflower seed and monitor them to see whose can grow the tallest by the last day of the holidays;
Go on a scavenger hunt in garden, your street, the park. for shells, feathers, sweet wrappers, etc. and team up adults or older children with little ones – with prizes for the most items, the prettiest, the biggest, the smallest etc! Join in! Whenever you can, join in with whatever your kids are playing. If they are dancing to their favourite CD, stop what you’re doing and boogie. If they’re painting, join in and stick your creation to the fridge next to theirs. If they’re always on their bikes, plan a whole-family bike ride for the weekend.
