Search­ing for free school hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties?

Sport Bay of Plenty’s Vir­tu­ally on Track ini­tia­tive has got things cov­ered with a range of free self-guided ac­tiv­i­ties at seven lo­ca­tions around the Bay of Plenty.

Fea­tur­ing ready-made trea­sure hunts, fam­ily games and chal­lenges, such as build­ing a sun­dial from nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, re­cre­ation ad­vi­sor Court­ney Meir­ing says the ac­tiv­i­ties are de­signed to en­cour­age fam­i­lies to have fun and get out and ex­plore the lakes, bays and beaches around the Bay of Plenty.

“Keep­ing the kids en­ter­tained and ac­tive, and find­ing low cost and en­gag­ing op­tions, can al­ways be a bit of a chal­lenge at this time of year,” Court­ney says.

“We there­fore wanted to of­fer fam­i­lies a range of free self­guided ac­tiv­i­ties that­would pro­vide easy ways for kids and adults to be ac­tive and have fun over the hol­i­days.”

As an added in­cen­tive, prizes are also up for grabs for any­one com­plet­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties be­tween 21 De­cem­ber and 31 Jan­uary. En­ter­ing is as easy as up­load­ing a photo to Face­book or In­sta­gram us­ing hash­tag #Vot­funin­sun of your wha¯nau com­plet­ing an ac­tiv­ity. The more ac­tiv­i­ties com­pleted, then the more chances to win.
