School Holiday Activities during COVID

School Holiday Activities COVID style

Small Ideas has adapted as best we can to help families still use their membership to access many discounts during lockdown.

We have responded to families requests for discounts at Takeaway venues like Boost Juice, your local hamburger shop and many others.

What has been most popular are the activity boxes that range from educational helping pre schoolers with their learning, craft and art boxes, games for older children and some zoom classes.

Here is our Guide:
