9 Popular School Holiday Fun Ideas
The school holidays are coming up and you are looking for some popular fun ideas to add to your holiday entertainment calendar?
Bubbling With Energy has over 27 years experience in providing entertainment products for clients all over Australia. Based on that experience we have put together a tool kit of school holiday fun ideas. They will help you to provide a safe and memorable experience for your young clients during the school holidays.
These ideas are suitable for holiday play centres, youth clubs, church youth groups, child care centres, council events, recreation parks, family restaurants, and aquatic centres.
However, before we start, decide on what age groups you are catering for, what size play area is available, whether it is outdoors or indoors, and what your budget is? Some organisations also theme their events. This can also impact on what amusement devices are hired.
School Holiday Fun Ideas Tool Kit
1 Water Fun
It’s summer and hot. Inflatable water slides are all the rage these days so why not set up a water slide in your back yard, park, recreation centre, child care or holiday play centre. Children never seem to tire of climbing the stairs and scrambling down the soft slides into a pool of water. Furthermore, you can get a small slide such as the Jump N Splash, the medium sized Whale Water Slide, or the giant Wild Rapids!
Click Water Slides for more ideas. If water slides do not suit your needs, check out our range of Dry Slides.
Pool and Aquatic Centres often hire our Sea Scramble or the Wipeout Pool inflatables which can actually be set up on the water!
2 Fun Run
Did you know you can get fun run courses with names like the Extreme Fun Run, the Toxic Shock or the Adrenaline Rush? Or, how about an inflatable Obstacle Maze. These entertainment devices will make your Fun Run an event to remember. The Fun Run design is only limited by your imagination.
Click Obstacle Courses for our exciting range of Fun Run ideas.
3 Themed Inflatables for the Littlies
How about themed jumping castles for the younger kids? Have themed jumping castle events designed featuring well known TV or Movie characters such as the Ninja Turtles, P J Mask, Octonauts or Disney’s Frozen (and many more). Add some carnival food to add to the fun.
See children’s jumping castles for theme ideas.
4 Inflatable Obstacle Courses
Set up a park lane of Obstacle courses with names like the Aqua Rush, the Toxic Wipeout Challenge (based on the popular TV show “Wipeout”), the excellent Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course (also based on a TV show), and the Adrenaline Rush Extreme obstacle course, which absolutely lives up to its name!
So, get ready for climbing walls, ladders, slides, tackling bags, jumping balls, popups and heaps of other obstacles you just can’t imagine till you experience them.

5 School Holiday Shopping Centre Fun
Depending on the area available, small and medium sized jumping castles are always a great hit in shopping centres. But you can add to the fun by theming the event. For example, create a Disney or Ninja character theme. Then, have a competition during the day for children who dressed up as their favourite character. We have Fairy Tale, Jungle Adventure, Princess, Ninja Turtle, Justice League, and a heap of other themed jumping castles and obstacle courses. They are very popular so book now to avoid missing out.
Add to the fun with Temporary Glitter Tattoos and Face Painters.
We can also provide carnival type activities like a circus train and carnival food such as fairy floss and sno cones.

6 Inflatable Sports Fun
Help your budding matilda’s, wallabies, socceroo’s, kangaroo’s, golfers and other potential sporting greats achieve their dreams (or at least practice them) with an inflatable sports day.
Set up your sports field with our Inflatable Sports Zone (it has an indoor soccer, volley ball and basketball arena, and even a game of twister), and the Inflatable Golf Challenge, Basketball and Soccer Shootouts, the Inflatable Football Passing, and the Hippo Chow Down (based on the popular board game only more physical and interactive). We’ve also got Connect a Shot and the Human Wrecking Ball, and a myriad of other exciting sports fun devices.

7 Circus Ideas
Bubbling with Energy has a number of experienced performers to add more fun to your event. You can hire a clown, a magician, a temporary tattoo artist or face painter, a balloon artist, or an all rounder circus performer to entertain your school holiday fun clients. Additionally, tie it in with a circus themed castle or obstacle course. Then you will be providing heaps of memorable fun for the kids.

8 For the Older Kids
The Mechanical Bull, Mechanical Can, or Mechanical Snowboard or Surfboard Simulators are popular with the older kids. They also like interactive activities such as the inflatable Human Wrecking Ball challenge, Football Passing, and the Soccer Shootout. In fact, we have a whole range of sports related inflatables for hire.
We can also supply pinball machines, air hockey and pool tables for short term hires.

9 Large Family Fun Events
Councils and corporates can attract large crowds to School Holiday Fun events like a Water Park. This is where we take over a park, and set up a range of spectacular inflatables and other activities.
Alternatively, we can supply activities for a fun run obstacle course, dry slides, or sports themed activities as described earlier in this blog.
We specialise in large events and have the experienced staff and the professional expertise to help you create events which have the WOW factor.
Check out our Event Ideas for examples of what we can provide.
School Holiday Fun – Safety First
Finally, for all of these School Holiday Fun Ideas events we have trained staff who can set up and supervise your amusement hire. For some products you can provide your own supervisors. However, we will train them in how to run a safe event. We will even supply access to a video explaining proper safety procedures when using inflatables.
Also, read our Successful Event Planning blog for ways to ensure your event organising is smooth and stress free.
