Hello new week, and, in fact, hello new month! How on earth is it March already? Just like that the kids are about to finish for school holidays, Easter is springing to mind, and before we know it, it will be the end of the school year. Again! With time whizzing past so darn fast, we’re all about packing the memory bank with as much cool stuff as possible. Here’s where we’ll be at this week…
1. Watch a feel-good musical
We caught the Gala night of Matilda the Musical and were blown away by the talented cast, brilliant sets, laugh-a-minute script and all out excellence of the show. A must for any one with a kid who even remotely likes Roald Dahl… Catch a performance between now and 17 March.
2. Hang out with Adam Levine and his mates (kinda)
Whether you decide to go on a date night with a difference, gather your mum-mates for a girl’s night out, or make a family affair of it with your older kiddos, Maroon 5 at in town on 7 March and we we’re sure it’s going to be one amazing show. Dust off your dancing shoes for your Moves Like Jagger and get your singing voices prepped: it’s happening at the National Stadium on 7 March for one night only.
3. Head to a reading carnival for kids
Bring your kiddos to the Early Read Carnival for a day of sensory and literary activities that eager little bookworms will love. Check out four different play stations and then borrow up to six books to bag yourself a free pencil case complete with coloured pencils, so you can then go home and continue the fun. It’s happening at Woodlands Regional Library on 8-9 March, 9am-1pm, all for free.
4. Beat the heat with an ice lolly
This long spell of hot, dry weather doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, so we say get into the kitchen with the kids and whip up a freezer full of sweet-but-healthy treats for a sweltering day. Here are some ice lolly ideas to get you started, but go crazy coming up with your own flavours too! Don’t forget to tag us at #honeykidsasia on Insta with your pretty results.
5. Check out a new fam-friendly exhibit
Art meets science in the innovative exhibition, MeshMinds 2.0: ArtxTechforGood, opening on 7 March (and winding up on 17 March) at the Art Science Museum, and it’s packed with over 20 multi-sensory art experiences to keep the kiddos busy with. Get inspired to #beatplasticpollution checking out OceanScrub, an interactive mobile game about the consequences of pollution, and then travel through the human stomach (eek!) in Water Bodies to find out just how many microplastics we consume (double eek!).
