You can get a sitter or try to find a day summer camp for thier age group. There’s usually alot of activities grouped by age and field trips. I thought my little one wouldn’t like it at first because she clings to me so much but she used to wake me up to get her ready for camp

I am a stay at home mum but in Australia many schools run a school holiday programme. It is from 7am-6pm. Our school runs this , it is the same people that run the before and after school care. It is for prep-grade 6. Also the pool runs a programme to (it is a YMCA one) and they do stuff there (not just swimming) and they have day trips

Answer by AlexTrebek
I enroll my son in day camps. YMCA, fine arts center, space and science center. Some camps can be a little expensive, but if you plan ahead and do your research you can find some very reasonable programs. Its also a good chance for them to try new things without committing for to long. Lastly try to collaborate with other parents. Maybe you can take turns driving or watching the kids after camp.
