I took my kids out to the Perth Royal Show (an annual agricultural show with amusement rides) and spent 8 hours hanging out with them and having a fantastic day!
My 8 yo and 10 yo were utterly thrilled by the rides, the carnival games, the showbags, animals and the crowds!
They played laser tag, did some abseiling, shooting, rope climbing, footy drills, ball throwing, commando crawling, they sat on a ghost train, a spinning ride, they rolled around in a huge inflatable ball thing, they made a grass head, and they stalked a Star Wars Storm Trooper.
We had so much fun!
And while all that was going on, my 4yo would find a quiet corner and preferred to do stuff like this…
He coloured in a free activity book. He did a maze. A word puzzle. A bit of craft. Made postcards.
And the kid wrote me a love letter!
He’s such a sweetie!
