Hi Parents !
Not long now before wait for it "SCHOOL HOLIDAYS " are you ready ?
While rushing around for the Christmas Festive Season ,take a moment to think about
what comes after the big day .
Maybe have a action plan (some idea's to get out and enjoy the holidays ) if not going away
with your special needs child enjoy going places, new experiences ,good old fashion
SUN, FRESH AIR, OUT IN OUR COMMUNITY.
Please keep in mind if you are going to the Park(in some places on the outskirts of the City) that its the weather for Snakes , Spiders
Bee's are out and check the walking paths for broken glass(drink bottles) from Christmas
Melbourne Zoo has a lovely program in the evenings sometimes ,Music fun things to do while
looking around ,check their web site for times and programs.
Williamstown Beach have also a really good Coffee bar , sandwiches right on the beach next to the Lifesaver
Club, Great food and Chairs , undercover , toilets . Great bike trail good for children to ride their scooter ,roller blade
and so on. Across the road is a great Ice Cream Shop that also sells ,Coffee,Pizza , snack's if you would prefer to
sit in out from the weather, Swings Park across from the shop, Great fun times !! Sea , waves and the breeze. Get outdoors this summer and enjoy
the buzz of it all, doesn't cost a huge amount , good for the child to use social Skills.
Short day trips make all the difference ,if on a budget you can still enjoy lots of free activity to do with your Child.
Albert park Victoria street (end of the road at the beach) have a wonderful Park ,on the sand, the child can play using interaction play
have fun in the sand ,building sand blocks and so on. Has a huge safety fence (still have to watch the child, don't forget sunscreen and a huge hat )
lots of children to play with , lovely smell of the sea as they do so. Across the busy road is a Great
Ice Cream Shop (they sell gluten free) home made Ice Cream . Plenty of food places to sit
and enjoy outside the shops if you like too! .
I found Williamstown Side to be less windy and more to Sons liking , but both are Wonderful Days Out.
Which Child does not love a Ice Cream in a Cone while watching the on goings around the Beach Side.
Fun Times to remember !!!
Start making a list of things to do that way when the Child happens to ask ,you can pick one and
know that the Outing will be enjoyed by all the Family. Children on the Spec love to know
whats next! .Also keep in mind (research before hand on line the Safety Factors Tick off a list)
and then make your mind up where to go !
Enjoy the time together and does not have to cost a huge amount of $$$$$$ every time
you go out. Happy holidays to all !!!
Kind Regards Skatergirl08
