MAKE AN OUTDOOR CINEMA
“Invite your children’s friends over and host a movie night with an outdoor cinema. By simply buying a second-hand screen and providing each guest with a pillow and popcorn, the kids will be entertained for hours, watching their favourite movies under the stars,” stars, say says Kirsty.
“If you’re not ready to commit to weekly lessons or sporting comps, one-off creative classes may be what you’re after,” says Kirsty. “The Gumtree community is home to many creative and independent businesses. Many offer classes in their area of expertise – these exciting activities include cooking, art and craft, singing, children’s yoga and even cupcake decorating!”
