  • When it's hot in Adelaide, it's really bloody hot. So here are some great parks where you can find FREE shade, water, and some playground fun to keep the kids happy and the electricity bill down. As always PLEASE be very careful with your kids around water. We love kids exploring, having fun in nature and having a splash but you need to watch them at all times! And don't forget to slip, slop, slap and wrap! All of the places below are FREE for a cool down, more of a splash than a proper swim If you're looking for swimming pools and water parks - click hereIf you're looking for our favourite beaches for families - click hereIf you're looking for secret swimming spots - click here Got other Faves? let us know so we can add them

  • If your kids are anything like ours, one of their favourite things to do is slip, slop, slap and wrap and head down to the beach for the day. It’s even better when you find a beach that has some awesome rock pools to explore. The team at Kids in Adelaide have searched high and low (and under a few rocks) to find some of the best rock pools in South Austraila for you to explore this summer. Of course it goes without saying, always make sure your kids are super careful around rockpools (the best way to do this is carefully walking around the rockpools rather than running or jumping) as the rocks can be slippery and sharp. A pair of old sneakers or water shoes come in handy! Also remember rockpools are home to a bunch of different critters so let’s keep their homes safe by making sure all rocks that are turned over are put back, leave all rocks and shells where you found them. Take only your rubbish and a whole bunch of photos home with you. Here’s some of our favourites…. happy exploring!

  • Kids LOVE water play, it's cheap, and usually pretty clean and well a bit messy but that's ok, only water right? With hot days ahead it's always a fun option. Here are some of our favourite activities involving good old H2O that will keep your little people both cool and entertained this summer. An old baby bath, a clam pool and a hose with a changeable pressure and water distribution nozzle are some of the things we find handy, as well as some old cups, bowls, spoons or what ever you might have that can be well, sacrificed. Before we kick off, it would be negligent of us not to throw in a reminder that drowning can occur in very small bodies of water. Always supervise waterplay for young kids and always ensure you flip buckets or tubs over so as they are empty when you finish. Now let's get to it...... Hose play. You control the hose, the kids run around like maniacs. Get them running with a nice cold squirt on the back. Make water bridges for them to run under, water hurdles for them to jump over, make it 'rain', swirly big circles for them to jump…
