We were getting a little cabin fever being stuck inside on these cold wintery days so we decided to get our skates on and head to Craigieburn Central’s
Real Ice Skating Rink! It was time to embrace the cold by hitting the ice!
We loved it last year (you can read about it HERE
) and it is back again from Saturday 1 August to Sunday 6 September 2015.
This year, it wasn’t just Georgina and Alegría enjoying the ice. Isaac is old enough now to strap on the skates and because Tim wasn’t feeling 100% he was our official photographer!
There are penguin stabilisers that are fantastic for the children to hold onto and skate behind and the friendly staff are available to help out.
Children 5 and under are recommended to wear their own shoes with double blade clip-on skates, so make sure you take closed-toe shoes. The hire cost was included in the low entry price.
Craigieburn Central have organised a lot of family activities such as games on ice, tiny tots, learn to skate and storytime with Hume Library sessions, and on selected weekend evenings you skate under the stars and watch as the rink comes to life with an overlay of live music to delight young and old.
