Tips to keep the chidlren entertained these holidays
WITH the holiday season fast approaching, parents can now turn to an online resource with helpful tips and ideas to keep their children entertained.
Communities for Children (CfC) in Capricorn has created a new Facebook page for families that is packed full of ways to keep children busy and engaged.
CfC Capricorn Project Manager Michelle Roberts said sometimes it is hard for parents to think of activities for children to do over the holidays, so this is where CfC FP can help.
She said: "They could create some crafty artworks, check out the local library, get some healthy, child-friendly recipes and there are lots more.
"There are heaps of fun activities families can do that don't cost a fortune."
A key priority of Communities for Children in Capricorn is promoting the importance of activities that lead to a healthy lifestyle for families.
"Regular exercise, good eating habits, getting enough rest and having a positive self-image is very important for all family members," Michelle said.
The Facebook page also provides information about what is happening in the local community, educational programs on offer and information for parents to support their child's development.
"It is a great resource for all families and a great way for families to connect," Michelle said.

Communities for Children in Capricorn is funded by the Australian Government and facilitated by The Smith Family.
