Parents, you need a break! It’s hard work having the kids home 24/7; they really do need a lot of stimulation to keep them balanced and happy. During the April school holidays, a few local businesses have changed their business model to provide activities for kids remotely. Below is a list of local companies offering Sporty, Creative and Educational programs.
Also, take a look at our article here on children’s activities that have gone online which may offer classes during the school holiday (previously they were term based but heck everything has changed and frankly who knows what day it is)
Little Legends aims to build a lasting love of exercise through a wide variety of age-specific sports, games and activities that are suitable for both girls and boys of all athletic abilities
Not online, but the Little Legends Get Active Program – aims to give parents who are working from home some time to get work done while the kids are out and active. This will be done strictly within the social distancing rules.
During the session, your child can play a requested sport or activity, play cricket in the nets, play handball, ride a bike, or simply run around at the park.
1-hour Private Session
– One participant, one coach
– Ages 4 and up
– Available any day, time and location
$80 per session
