With most schools closing for the holidays this week we thought we would share not 5 but 10 School Holiday Sanity Saving ideas from Pinterest because we need all the help we can get with the kids sometimes!!!

There are hundreds nee thousands of pins on this subject, these are just some of our favourites.

Don’t forget to scan back through Delightful Decorations & Cute Christmas Cooking blog posts from recent weeks for bonus ideas as many of them served multiple purposes.

School Holiday Sanity Saving ideas The Filing Fairies love (links to pins in titles)

{Pool noodle race ramp} Got an old manky pool noodle around?  My Jacob would love this one – anything with speed involved and he is a big fan.

{Sock fishing} Get the kids involved in some de-cluttering that serves a dual purpose.  Find all the odd socks and then make a game

{Fun with pegs} Remember how I said I loved pegs (I wasn’t making it up) check out this cool craft

{Ice explorers} Prepare this one in advance for the hottest of hot days

{Trampoline ideas other than jumping} Who is getting a trampoline this Christmas? 50 things to do other than jump

{Boxed up} Remember to save the Xmas boxes…they will come in handy for games

{A to Z} We love A to Z (and if you stick with us I will expand on that subject in July 2014 – yep I have planned that far ahead)

{Santa simplified} Some of you might face the “YOU are Santa accusation this year” I love this letter to a child explaining it

{Waiting made easy} Eating out much these holidays?  Try these restaurant waiting games

{I’m bored Jar} Get organised, plan ahead and create an “I’m bored” jar
