How to survive the Christmas silly season with your children

(Provided by Kinderling Kids Radio, a Playgroup NSW Media Partner)

For children, Christmas can be overwhelming, tiring and fun - all at the same time. There is an entire ritual that occurs on Christmas that children are not yet familiar with.

Holidays can be intense for children, as everything is new to them: the Christmas tree, gifts, Santa Claus, guests… It is easy to see how emotions and moods can escalate quickly. So here are a few ideas to get you and your child in ship-shape for the holiday season.

7 outdoor activities for toddlers

With the long summer holidays coming up, no doubt at some point your children will be showing signs of boredom. One of the best ways to entertain a bored child is to take them outside. The outdoors offer endless possibilities for having fun. It’s also a healthy alternative to playing in the house.

Here are seven outdoor activities you can do with your children, without having to leave your neighbourhood.
