Fuel School Holiday Fun – The BOS Way!

As school holidays approach, it’s an exciting time for the whole family. Whether you’re planning an adventurous day out or looking for new and exciting hobbies – the whirlwind of activities require boundless energy from you AND your kids! With so much on the go, keeping the kids entertained and fueled can pose a challenge for many parents.

Now’s the time to take your mind off the monotony of the school calendar and embrace all that the school holidays have to offer. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of our top FIVE activities for kids below:

1. Outdoor Adventures

South African Easter holidays are unique in the sense that they fall perfectly into the sweet spot of Autumn. We’re truly lucky when it comes to our climate. Long gone are the days of extreme heat as we extend our arms and welcome April. You hear that? Outdoor adventures are calling!

This is the perfect time of year to plan a family-friendly hike or camping trip in one of our many national parks. Lace up your hiking boots and don’t forget to pack your BOS Sparkling Ice Tea to rehydrate after a long day of exploring. When the evening begins to get a bit chilly, pack a flask of Organic Rooibos Tea to enjoy while soaking in the scenery. Pure perfection!

2. Beachy Keen

Spending the day at the beach is another fantastic way to be outdoors with the family. Pack your beach bats, sunblock and all the necessary items to build an epic sandcastle. A refreshing 3L BOS Ice Tea box goes a long way – enough to quench the thirst of the whole family while catching a tan.

3. Pack a Picnic

For those who may not be sea-adjacent (apologies to the Gautengers), pack a scrumptious picnic basket and head to a nearby park. You could visit Delta Park or Walter Sisulu Botanical Garden. While there might not be any waves, the kids will still catch a wave of excitement at the thought of this wholesome family outing. But don’t fret, we have a few ideas for all parts of the country. Western Cape? Visit places like Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens or Green Point Park offer idyllic settings for a family outing. KwaZulu-Natal? Durban Botanic Gardens or Jameson Park are perfect choices. 

The kids can run around, make use of the playground equipment and get rid of any excess energy. Don’t forget your BOS Ice Tea as a post-playtime refreshment. We couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy quality family time while soaking up the sunshine. Sounds like a win-win to us!

4. Get Creative

Get the little ones to release their inner Picasso with some Easter-themed art projects at home. Set up a crafting station with supplies like coloured paper, khokis, glue and scissors, drawing inspiration from the vibrant hues of BOS Ice Tea bottles. From colourful Easter eggs to whimsical bunny origami, the possibilities are endless!

Some BOS crafting inspo: Buy mini succulents or fresh herbs and let the kids use BOS ice tea cans as quirky planters. It’s a fun and imaginative way to spend quality time together while teaching the importance and wonder of plants.

5. Kitchen Dreams

The kitchen is a great place to bond with your kids. Spend some time cooking or baking delicious (and nutritious) kids treats together. Don’t be afraid to get messy and try something new! Looking for ideas? Check out how to go BOS in the kitchen for more. 

Make a BOS lunch

While these particular school holidays might have your kids making a bee-line for the chocolate Easter eggs, it’s important to supplement their meals with snacks and drinks that are healthy and tasty too! It’s all about balance, right?

When planning things to do with kids, packing lunch boxes with food that keeps them energised is what’s going to take the activity to the next level. Keeping the little ones busy is difficult enough without them being hangry little monsters (Oh, how we love our kids!)

Swap out those sugary treats for more nutritious alternatives like fresh fruit and nuts. Incorporate BOS Ice Tea into their snack routine, available in convenient 200ml packs, perfect for on-the-go sipping. Remember, Rooibos helps build strong, healthy bones, is caffeine free AND replaces electrolytes lost during play and exercise.

Quality Time. Quality Entertainment. Quality Drinks!

When it comes to keeping kids energised throughout the school holidays, choosing the right fuel plays a crucial role. With refreshing flavours and natural ingredients, BOS Ice Tea is a guilt-free option that kids will love.

Whether you’re exploring family attractions, enjoying the great outdoors or simply spending time together at home, school holidays serve as the perfect opportunity to make memorable moments that matter.
