With the Pine Rivers Christmas Carols just around the corner, kids are sure to be buzzing with excitement. Christmas carols are an ideal way to bring the family together and spend some time bonding in the crisp summer night air.

But how else do you include family bonding time into your schedule these school holidays without having to trek across the country? Head over to the Brisbane Kids website for a variety of ideas on how to engage your kids in family activities across Brisbane. Or if you want to stay local, here are some cheap and entertaining things to do in Pine Rivers that will get the whole family involved in some summer fun.

Pine Rivers Park

Soak up the sunshine at the most popular park in the Pine Rivers region, Pine Rivers Park. Perfect for a family BBQ or Christmas party, the park boasts open grassy fields and several playground areas, suited for all different ages and skill levels. Even though the park draws in quite a crowd with its reputation and continuous excitement, it still has enough space to host multiple large groups.

The playground facilities will keep kids amused for hours, and there are plenty of shaded picnic tables and benches so Mum and Dad can keep an eye on the action without getting hot and flustered. Slap on some sunscreen, throw some snacks and water bottles into a bag and head on down to the local park for hours of entertainment in the sunshine without having to spend a cent!
