We’ve curated a list of our top 5 family experiences for the school holidays. Created by our friends and collaborators, these wonderful activities by local artists are the perfect way stay connected and kick your imagination into overdrive!
If you haven’t already checked out Teeny Tiny Stevies (every parent’s favourite kid’s band) we highly recommend you do! They had children and grown-ups alike boogying at our ever-popular High Tea Party series. Head to their website for a collection of music videos, lyrics and free kids activities. For those of you tackling toilet training during this isolation period, you’ll be happy to know there’s a song for that too.
JUNK made us all want to run away with the circus back in 2017, and now you can watch it again. See Australia's world famous circus for young people transform a 1940's rural junkyard into a magical landscape. Stream the full performance for free on ABC iView, along with some brilliant behind-the-scenes footage.
Get crafty with our friends at Polyglot Theatre! They have challenged their artists to come up with a series of videos about the fun things to do with stuff you can find around the house. Make a pair of binoculars, craft an outfit from recycling and more. Endless hours of home-bound hilarity.
Need to add some more silliness to your isolation? We are still LOLing from the stage show ICKYPEDIA by kidult comedy duo The Listies. Luckily for us, they have a heap of hilarious videos to keep you and the kids giggling at home – such as this one about washing your hands featuring an insane line-up of Aussie comedians. While you’re there you can also check out the swag of goodies in their online shop. From books to CDs, there is something to entertain all die-hard Listies fans.
We love to see books adapted for the live stage – so why not create your own live book adaptation at home? Fans of Mick Elliott’s book trilogy, The Turners, can now go on a wild adventure without leaving their living room. This immersive audio experience lets children play as the lead characters in a high-stakes action adventure. Get the Audioplay app and participate for free until 30 April.
