Adventures of Zambezia GIVEAWAY

Just in time for the school holidays an exciting new kids movie hits the shelves on DVD. We all know that during the holidays parents need that little bit of quiet time and this is sure to help you get it! Adventures in Zambezia is set on the edge of the magnificent Victoria Falls; a busy bird city and tells a tale of growth, adventure and acceptance.


Kai is a young falcon on the cusp of adulthood who is naïve but high-spirited; he is forbidden from venturing beyond the boundary but knows there must be something more to life. So he takes flight to the bird city of Zambezia after becoming bored with life when living with his strict father in the remote outback; only to discover the truth about his origins. Kai ends up defending the city of Zambezia and as a result learns how to be part of a community. This movie is bound to be a huge hit with the family! To make the holidays even better for the kids we have put together some special activities for them. You can find them here for FREE. You can also find FREE birthday party invitations here. Who doesn’t love a freebie?

    We do backyard picnics, lots of cubbyhouses made out of sheets and the kitchen table, stamping and cardmaking (basic), watch the Midday Movie (this involves watching a DVD from home – not the one of TV unless it is suitable). You can tell I have the grandkids during the school holidays…. they think Nana watches the Midday Movie everyday, so they like to watch with me. We also do a bit of baking for them to take home to their parents. I hope everyone enjoys the school holidays

    The kids and I take the time to do all the things my husband never wants to do on the weekends: Movies, The Pancake parlour, head to a park or 3, catch up with our Mothers’ group friends, DVD marathon with popcorn and blankets on the couch. Best f all is having a little sleep in everyday and not having to rush around!

  7. Michelle Bowlay

    We love to take bikes rides with a packed lunch so we can stop half way at a park or at the beach for a picnic before riding back home.

  8. Ann M Sculley

    Usually a movie trip and if the weather is good we love to take a hike around our beautiful area for special family days collecting things we find along the way

    Sometimes I look upon holidays with dread. My husband is usually working so all the thinking and enthusiasm falls on my shoulders. After a term of hectic antics I’m ready for a rest. But all the kids want to do is go places and be active. I have to put on my thinking cap, draw on some enthusiasm and we go on picnics, to the park, kick around a ball or play cricket, go for a milkshake treat down town, watch movies and generally run around at a manic pace. If my husband manages a day off we take the kids on a day trip to the cinema or an adventure playground – this is a 200 km round trip so I like hubby to be with us – we make the most of the opportunity and it is always a full on day!

  10. Antonietta

    We enjoy going to the drive-ins, kids in the front and us adults have a coffee in the back watching the animated movies, it’s so much fun and with so many movies starting this week, we’ll be busy 🙂

  11. Ash M

    I’ve gotten the kids hooked on photography. We spend lots of time together getting that perfect shot. They love it.

    I started something new last school holidays and my 4yo loved it, she was very excited. What I did was ask her some things she would like to do over the holidays, typed them into word and printed them out, then I cut them up and put them in a box (into different categories..example – day trips, new park, things to do at home etc…) and she got to pick one each day, she loved it and we weren’t bored over the holidays. You can make it as cheap or expensive as you can afford – only imagination is required.

  13. Belinda Baker
    16/09/2013 / 6:08 pm

    Bike rides to the local park where we have a picnic, board game day, make our own pizza days, hire a movie from the library and make popcorn days, dress ups days, have friends over to play days, treasure hunt days, check out our local library for free ( or small fee) craft days, stay in our pj’s all day days.

  14. Graham Buckingham

    We like taking our six children to different parks and reserves each day and play ball games and let them on play equipment.

    Arts & Crafts especially if its raining, my daughter love doing anything creative.

  16. Leah
    17/09/2013 / 11:50 am

    Home movies when it rains,
    We also ride the trains,
    Finding leaves for art is also their pick,
    Cheap and cheerful activities do the trick!

  17. Michelle van Schouwen
    17/09/2013 / 1:20 pm

    Unfortunately due to business commitments we can never do many ‘family’ activities on the school holidays. However I do book the kids into art classes (which they both love) and whenever we are together as a family we tend to head to the beach, go for a walk or swim in the pool. Sometimes we visit local attractions for something different.

    I’m guilty of letting the kids sit in front of the TV to watch movies whilst I get some work done but at night if it’s a new movie we haven’t seen before then my husband and I will watch with them with bags of microwave popcorn. The holidays are always full of visits from other family members, sleepovers and lots of BBQ’s.

  18. Caroline K
    17/09/2013 / 1:25 pm

    Treasure hunts and native flora and fauna walks and picnics, ball games, movie marathons and performance plays at home, baking biscuits and muffins, and arts and crafts.

    Day trips. And we make a real adventure out of it, waking up with the birds so we can set off as the sun is rising, taking a picnic lunch too. And it doesn’t cost a fortune either (only petrol) with there being so many free things to see and do, and we always make our own fun too.

  20. Diana O
    17/09/2013 / 2:18 pm

    Fishing. It’s fun, gets us out in the fresh air, away from all the electricity sucking gadgets and gizmo’s that monopolize young minds these days. And you’d be surprised at how much fun we all have, with less squabbles than imagined too 🙂

  21. Martin
    17/09/2013 / 3:06 pm

    We chill out, play outside, go down the beach, maybe a movie or two

  22. Alicia
    17/09/2013 / 3:07 pm

    We do some cooking, clean out the old toys, ride our bikes and have lots of fun

  23. 17/09/2013 / 4:47 pm

    My husband and I both have to work through the second half of the school holidays. My lovely, generous 🙂 husband will be taking the kids into his office for a few days. Lord knows he’s going to need all the help he can get to keep the kids amused and Zambezia sounds like it might give him a few hours respite 🙂

    4 busy boys,
    no electronic toys.
    Outside for games and play
    to enjoy the wonderful day.
    Excursions are all exciting
    so long as they’re not fighting.
    My busy boys
    so full of noise.

    Cool movie the kids are going to love.

  28. 17/09/2013 / 10:19 pm

    The combination of being a tight ass and hating crowds…especially anywhere that might attract other people with kids , means we do a lot of things at home! Baking, painting, craft, with occasional trips to the (quiet) local park when the weathers good!

  29. Cate
    18/09/2013 / 7:05 am

    So much to do which doesn’t cost a lot-
    • having friends over for the day
    • an outing to the park for a play.
    • cooking a meal- even 3 courses
    • going on a walk to feed the horses.
    • making things out of a recycled box
    • a cubby house, a dinosaur or a ferocious fox.
    • having a relaxing pyjama day,
    • definitely my favourite way!

    We make up a school holiday roster of activities the kids choose to do.
    From riding their scooters on the footpath, a picnic on a beautiful sunny day,
    woo hoo.
    We go to the local Japanese Gardens, for a play date, chat and hot chips,
    climb on the rocks and see the spectacular view, it’s really a hit.
    We get out our paints and craft, create a masterpiece for all the family to view,
    if it’s cold and wet we opt for the movies, the library, or the op shop to find some books or clothes that fit.
    One of our favorite family activities is cooking a cake or two, making some yummy iceblocks, then sitting in the sun and enjoying it too.

  33. 18/09/2013 / 1:34 pm

    Um…fight, kiss and makeup. With the usual outings in between!

  34. Lynda Kibblewhite
    18/09/2013 / 2:44 pm

    My nieces and nephew do lots of craft, some reading, they go to the pictures once every holidays and sometimes go to their Grandparents who live near the beach .

  35. Kelly Ryan
    18/09/2013 / 5:03 pm

    At home spa days (I have girls), trips to the movies, tenpin bowling, cycling to the park, day at the beach, visiting the local swimming pool and cooking up a storm just to name a few!

  36. Kim m
    18/09/2013 / 10:33 pm

    My daughter and I cook for half a day, we fill the freezer with homemade cakes etc for school lunches! Her last invention was to put sprinkles (like 100 & 1000’s) in the cake mixture to make it rainbowie on the inside!

  37. Kaz Purtill-Wright
    18/09/2013 / 11:35 pm

    I live regionally so I have to think hard to entertain my kids during the school holidays. I also let the kids have a say in what we do. Last school holidays my oldest decided she wanted a ‘movie marathon of Harry Potter”, so we bought popcorn, ice cream and chocolate and watched Harry Potter in order ever night, it took a week. I also take the kids out to walk our lake walking track, they ride and I push the toddler in his jogger. We also ride the river track too, though that’s more bumpy. My kids also like to go to the netball courts near our house, about 20 all together and is the perfect spot to ride their scooters, roller blades and ripstik.

    We do a lot of fishing it’s a cheap activity and the children enjoy it. We set yabbie traps in the creek in our yard to catch yabbies for bait. We also do a lot of cooking together.

  39. Sonia El-Sheikh

    The Drive-In is our biggie! Week night movie, summer nights, deck chairs, pop the back of the van, picnic under the stars while watching the movie. We’re lucky enough to live near the Yatala Drive-In…. fanastic place!

  48. Nicole C
    21/09/2013 / 10:15 pm

    As we live in a remote rural area we normally travel for day trips to the beach and go fishing! We watch dvd’s, play games, do crafts and go play at the oval and have races to stay active 🙂

    I have already set aside a day for lunch at The Pancake Parlour now that they have Gluten free. Also a movie day, which we will hopefully mutually decide upon…yes I am thinking positively that this will be achieved. One must not forget all the Play dates, which have been promised! 🙂

  52. Tracy A

    The kids swim, swim, and swim.
    We also like going to the cinema and having playdates.
    They adore their grandparents and having time out.
    DVD are great to pop on before bed to wind down from the day.

    Lots of walking along the sea shore,

    I see the beach isn’t out of reach,
    Although I’d like to ban the sand.
    The cinema is always good for a gawk,
    But the kids don’t know how NOT to talk.
    The boys like to ten-pin-bowl,
    But I’m always stuck listening to the ‘non-winner’ howl.
    So many things can be done,
    Oh the joys of being a mum.

  62. Mary Preston
    24/09/2013 / 12:12 pm

    Cook up a storm. It’s a win/win. Productive, entertaining, and bonus, no one asking WHAT’S FOR DINNER?

  63. Stacey Shailer
    24/09/2013 / 8:32 pm

    We’d often pack a picnic and go bushwalking to one of the many waterfalls in the area during the holidays, loved it!

  64. Christy Seymour
    24/09/2013 / 9:46 pm

    the movies & the park,
    a BBQ after dark.
    riding our bikes,
    flying our kites.
    having lots of fun,
    playing in the sun.
    sandcastles on the beach,
    nothing’s out of reach.

  65. J Lou

    We live about a 10 minute drive from Western Plains Taronga Zoo in Dubbo so the kids like to pick an animal each and we’ll stop and look and read about them. Earlier this week we saw the elephants it was feeding time so they were up nice and close all my 3 year old son has talked about is the elephant did a big wee mum 😉

    26/09/2013 / 10:33 pm

    With an autistic ten year old and a 12 week old bub our very first set of school holidays have been all about noise! ….generally trying in vain to keep one quiet while the other sleeps, because they could never sync naturally! don’t think I’d have it any other way, I’m strapped in for this ride!

  71. Dawn Taylor
    26/09/2013 / 11:31 pm

    Oh I love movies like this so I can’t resist entering, even though my children are now grown. I was a day care mum for eleven years, and they are all grown now as well. One of my day cares has two gorgeous little girls, and their mum lets me pretend I’m their Nana, they call me proxy [doxeee]. They haven’t started school yet. They’d love to watch the movie on my up and down bed with me.
    I know I haven’t answered the comment properly, but I’ll love knowing I’ve entered, thanks .

  72. Claire M
    27/09/2013 / 6:24 pm

    With both of us working – school holidays is a balance between giving the kids the downtime and not rushing from place to place, while still getting the work done. This holidays we’ve had Soccer camp, which the boys really enjoyed. Love the Spring/Summer/Autumn holidays as we do lots of swimming for fun at home.
