ActiveActivities is an Australian website for Australians with the sole aim of bringing the widest range of kids activities and kids activity providers together for mums, dads, grandparents, step mums and dads, aunts and uncles, carers or just about anyone looking for activities for kids and toddlers.
As you would know, a childs development is important, and very often due to time and other pressures they spend a little more time in front of the television than they should. ActiveActivities can help you get them out there, to learn new skills, develop socially and build happy childhood memories.
We have over 50,000 providers of kids activities listed on the site. We hope you find this useful when searching for activities for your kids.

Lots of parents (mums, in particular) can be made to feel guilty about returning to work before their child starts school. I was recently faced with making this tough decision, and I thought I would write a post about it to help any other parents out there who are struggling with the prospect of putting their little one into day care.Read more
The other day we went to visit my brother and his growing family. My children love visiting their cousins. As soon as we walk through my brother’s front door, the girls disappear upstairs to explore their cousins’ bedrooms, toy boxes, and wardrobes. During the drive home, they always have a million stories to share.”Mummy, did you know Dylan has a new Playstation?” and “Mummy, have you seen the size of Jane’s room?” This time, however, I was pleased to hear the kids excitedly discussing a great new initiative that has been started at their cousins’ school.
Do you ever get the feeling kids these days are expected to spend every waking hour either at school, playing sport, learning a musical instrument, or otherwise taking part in some other extra-curricular activity? Don’t get me wrong, I am beyond delighted when my daughters show a passion for a new hobby. And of course I am more than happy to spend money helping them realise their goals and potential. But sometimes I think there is too much pressure on parents to spend money “outsourcing” their kids activities.
I have a confession to make: I hate it when my girls insist on “helping” when I cook dinner. Maybe I’m lucky they have taken an interest in this domestic chore (couldn’t they clean the bathroom instead?), but honestly I would much rather get the cooking done in peace.
We all want our kids to be happy and successful, but it’s easy to forget that as parents we also have a responsibility to raise socially aware children who know how to do their bit for the community. With Earth Day coming up on the 22nd April, there are countless kids activities that will instil valuable lessons in our little ones to make sure they grow up with a robust social conscience.
