Kids on the Coast & Kids in the City hit the shelves today!
Step aside Santa, because Easter is here and, without doubt, it’s my favourite festive period. With no big meals to plan or present lists to tick off, and the kids aren’t yet exhausted by the school year, it’s a holiday where we truly get to enjoy some quality family time, eat far too much chocolate… and OMG, don’t get me started on hot cross buns.
Easter is also an occasion when I love to go to town in the fun and games department. With Easter bunny flour footprints dotted around the house, master-planned Easter egg hunts, and personal notes from the Easter bunny, it’s a weekend filled with silliness and lots and lots of hugs.
To celebrate Easter, in this issue of Kids on the Coast and Kids in the City we have the best hot cross bun recipe, plus everything you need for a super-fun Easter egg hunt. We also have some recipes for a Mother’s Day breakfast that even the little ones can manage to put together. And of course, we have the usual news, reviews, kid-friendly events and activities to make your autumn a hoppy one!
We visit Bright Start Early Learning and Early Intervention Centre to find out about their unique service. This incredible centre provides childcare, early learning, animal assisted therapy AND out-of-hours care for children living with disabilities. It’s changing lives for many families across the region.
Back at home, we get set for the soccer season by having a chat with Brazilian Skills Soccer coach Cesar da Silva about this elite skills program.
We take the family for a week of epic family adventures in the rainforest with a trip to Thunderbird Park and Cedar Creek Lodges. Seriously, this place is uh-mazing! We take some time out to experience the new wellness program at Big 4 Holiday Park Gold Coast. We also jet off to Lady Elliot Island for a turtley-tastic family experience like no other.
Closer to home, we have a rundown of what’s on this Easter school holidays at Nicholas Street Precinct in Ipswich. Families there won’t be disappointed! We also find out about the orchestral adventures in store this year with Queensland Symphony Orchestra.
