SCHOOL HOLIDAY INSPIRATION
I thought I would try to consolidate your search and list some things here that might be worth considering these school holidays.
Not everything is open and back to normal, but slowly we are seeing more things open for you and your family to enjoy both in and around the Blue Mountains!
Search here for many child friendly bush walks, including maps for you to try.
There are 55 Playgrounds in the Blue Mountains. Search Here for my Top 10 favourite Playgrounds including links to where you find the others.
Check out the Explorer Bus too…Kids ride free!!!
Gardens and Outdoor Adventure that are Open
Many of these sites need to be booked for time ticketed entry in order to keep to restrictions so check before turning up.
Aquatic Centres (including some outdoor pools opening)
Scenic World– be sure to book tickets to the Dinosaur Valley tour!
Mayfield Gardens in Oberon– Summer Festival is on now and its worth the drive
Horse Riding: check out these sites for their offerings
Museums- Blue Mountains and Sydney
And if you feel like a bit of a day trip, there are some interesting exhibitions for kids at these Sydney Museums:
Museum of Sydney– be sure to book tickets for the new Dinosaur exhibition
Not local to the Blue Mountains, but always worth a day trip.
Wacky Workshops in Glenbrook, also has great inspiration on their Facebook page.
Springwood Boys and Girls Club- Holiday Activities (no calendar available on website, email them for more information and bookings)
Kids can Act workshops in Springwood
Build a Mind Workshops in Faulconbridge
Ebb and Flow Workshops in Faulconbridge

A few sites that I find inspiring when I am looking for activities to do things with my kids at home.
Download Borrow Box app for access to books for reading and listening digitally
I hope this helps you find some inspiration.
Remember to be Kind to yourself. Our kids do not need a full program of activities, and our blue mountains backyards are full of sticks and stones to create magic with.
Hope we all get a mixture of respite and recreation.
