Family Activities to do at home

We know how hard it can be to keep the kids entertained during these challenging times. We have put together a list of family activities to do at home that will hopefully entertain all members of the family.


The Holiday Inn Kids colouring booklet 

We love kids and family travel. Kemmons Wilson the founder of the Holiday Inn brand, started our hotel chain as he couldn’t find a hotel that was particularly for families. One of our key hotel principles is that Kids Stay & Eat Free, and that is all year round promise.


Take your hotel adventures home with this family activity

If you have never stayed at Holiday Inn Melbourne on Flinders before, one thing that you wouldn’t be aware of is that kids get a welcome pack upon arrival. It is filled with the adventures of Timmy and Annie. It is one of our top family activities to do at home as it was designed to be both fun and educational.
