As you would know, a child's 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.

There’s a reason why dogs are men’s best friend - they’re loyal, fun to be with and always there for support and a cuddle when you need them. This also applies for any kid that grew up with a pet in their family. Children who grow up with pets are found to have a better sense of responsibility, compassion and empathy from a young age. When was the last time, you and the kids spent some quality time with your family pet? If it’s been a while then make this weekend a fun family pet day out.

Reading and writing are core skills for any young person to possess; however, International studies have shown that even for English speaking countries like Australia, kids were found to have below average reading and writing skills. This is not surprising when you consider how heavily children today rely on digital technology to do the thinking for them. Just the other day, I caught my oldest daughter too lazy to correct her spelling mistake on her Word document. When I questioned her about it, her reply was simply, “It’s ok, mom. The computer will spell check it for me.” The key to improving our kids’ literacy level is to develop their interest in reading and writing from a young age. If you find your kid struggling with reading and writing or simply lack the interest, give the following tips a try.
Last week during Chinese New Year, my family and I were blessed to be invited over to our neighbour’s place for a traditional new year celebration. Our little ones really enjoyed trying all the traditional Chinese dishes, learning about new year traditions and were even given ‘red pocket money’ for good luck. This got me thinking about the culturally diverse world our children live in today. Today more than ever, our children need to learn to respect and appreciate that everyone is different - whether it’s their hair colour, skin colour, race... Here are some kids activities that helps to extend your child’s cultural learning.
Are you concerned about your kid’s lack of interest to spend time away from their computer, PS3, comic books and their reluctant to leave their rooms? Or perhaps you have been a little too over-protective of your kids to leave the walls of your home and backyard. Well, it appears that you are not alone! A recent Melbourne study of 300 children aged four to eight years found that two-thirds of kids were banned from playing outside their garden gate, citing fear of abduction and death as reasons. Spending time outdoor is also essential for the mental and physical development of all growing child. So this weekend, take your kids to go explore the great outdoor!

If you have kids starting school for the first time or going back to school this week, here are some tips and tricks on how to beat that first week back to school blues.
