During the school holidays our working staff village is livened up with chatter and laughter of excited kids coming to visit family members for the holidays. Every morning during their stay, Teachers Omilia, Felicia and Emma round up youngsters, ranging from three to sixteen-years-old, for the holiday programme activities that are offered. The program starts off with fun activities like arts and crafts, mask making, bean growing, painting, colouring-in competitions and more.
After that, hand-work makes way for an hour of iPad lessons, with digital learning at the heart of what we do at Londolozi. Then, with classroom activities done for the day, it’s time for game drive, where our young minds learn about the incredible eco-system that we are surrounded by at Londolozi.
In between all of this there’s time for a few in-promptu fun activities like water balloon fights, three-legged races, musical competitions, and fluffy paint decorating. The day ends off with a movie after lunch and then some important family time.
With the school holidays coming up, we are already planning a fun itinerary to keep our young bush dwellers enthralled and engaged in fun learning and awareness about their beautiful family home at Londolozi.
Do you have any suggestions for fun children activities for our holiday programmes? Please share your suggestion in the comment section with us and we’ll see if we can implement it for the next one!
