Win 2 Family Passes to The Australian Museum

by

There are only a few weeks left of the school term and then the summer holidays are here.

Have you thought about where to take the kids?

Or are you now doing the freak out that there are not many days left to plan or have some quiet time.

So if you needed a coffee, tea or something stronger before you have processed that there is only a little time left to do everything, you are not alone.

I really thought there was more time, but no it is true, only a few weeks till Christmas…I have checked the calendar.

I am in a mad rush to get things done before the kids are at home and asking me the following:

“What are we doing today mummy?” or “Where are we going?”

This post gives you a good chance to win a ticket to some holiday fun on me… or really thanks to The Australian Museum. If you are one of the lucky winners, then you will have an answer to the above questions when your kids ask you.  Your answer will be “The Australian Museum.”

    The girls tried to lift the food that a mammoth would have eaten. They found it tough to lift, even when they both did it at the same time. Give it a go when you see the Mammoths exhibit at The Australian Museum.

The family and I recently went to see the Mammoths Giant of the Ice Age Exhibit and it was fabulous.

It was so amazing to be so close to a prehistoric creature and to see that some still had fur on.
