2009 Term 1 School Holiday Ideas

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Sounds good. I had thought most parents would be hot-housing their kids during this break to prepare for the mid-terms :| .

Hi read the thread about the kelong and wanted to go during the Dec hols but a friend told me that period rainy season thus not a good idea to go then. Best time to go March/June I suppose?
Go Kelong 2 days then work the kids 5 days :evil:

I'm going KL for 5 days. Besides pigging out, visit some places of interest, its time for my kids to meet more relatives in KL. Yes, I usually bring along worksheets, story books & laptop for work. But just bring with no action. :lol: What do people usually say? It's the thought that counts? :?

Hi Jennifer. Thanks for reminding me. I must make sure I don't plan so early when my dd is in P6. They are currently P4 & P2, so I'm not so kan cheong. Ya. Quite difficult if our children is in P6. They might be required to come back to school for revision.
