Boredom Busters

I think all the mums and dads out there can agree with me that Summer holidays are tough. Keeping things interesting for six whole weeks is no easy task. Things get especially hard when you are trying to not spend a fortune every day just to entertain your little ones so here is a list of cheap and easy things you can do yourself at home to fill in some time before they blissfully go back to school.

  • We just hired Bop till you Drop to do a virtual birthday party for my 8 year old and I was soooo impressed. They did it through zoom, but they must have used professional equipment as the sound and image was amazing. Cathy the host was so friendly, energetic and full of life. My daughter and her friends loved it and didn’t want it to end. It was so nice seeing all the girls and boys on screen dancing and laughing. Cathy made my daughter feel so special. At first she was disappointed that she couldn’t have all her friends over, but by the end she was thanking me and even asked if we could do the same party next year. Thank you Bop till you Drop, you guys are a life saver!!!

  • Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for Emily’s Bop Till You Drop 5th Bday Disco party on the weekend. Lexi was amazing!! She kept the kids engaged and entertained throughout the whole party, and the disco was an absolute hit with the kids (and parents!). Lexi transformed our lounge room with her disco lights and everyone had a ball singing on the microphones, playing party games and showing off their best dance moves. The birthday girl was so happy her favourite songs were played and she felt the centre of attention. Also wonderful that even with her recently broken arm, Emily was able to join in all the games, singing, dancing and activities – in fact I think she completely forgot she had a broken arm! Have already heard from a number of parents that their kids would now like a disco party too. And of course Emily loved the party so much she wants to do the same thing next year! Thanks again.

  • Our daughter and her friends had the most wonderful time at her 5th Birthday party with the help of Bop till you Drop. Our gorgeous host kept all the kids engaged and partying on. We had so many compliments from friends on how good the entertainment was and how much fun they were all having.

  • We have just had the best school disco in years! All the kids enjoyed themselves and the energy and excitement from both Stacey and our students was amazing. All students from Kindy to Year 6 had a wonderful night, being able to get up on stage to dance and sing to their favourite song was great to see, Stacey did an amazing job! Thank you! We can’t wait to have BTYD back!
