The Australian Children’s Activities Week will be celebrated from the 25th to the 31st October, 2021 and be a special Halloween themed edition.

Children's Activities Week 2021
The Australian Children’s Activities Week (ACAW) was initiated in 2020.  Despite it being a challenging year for the children’s activity industry we would like to use this opportunity for Australian families to recognise the value and importance of children’s organised activities. This includes small business owners from all over Australia teaching and benefiting our kids through sport, arts/crafts, STEM, music, dance, swimming and live entertainment.
The ACAW is an opportunity for the children’s activity industry supported by the Australian Children’s Activities Association and What’s On 4 Kids to CELEBRATE and bring about AWARENESS of what the industry does and the service it provides to the Australian community.
This year the Australian Children’s Activity Week will be celebrated from the 25th to the 31st of October and be a special Halloween edition. Our aim is for this to continue as an annual event and be a celebration of fun, movement, dance, music and community.

What this means for families…

Make sure you follow your child activity providers’ social media accounts so you don’t miss out on how they will be celebrating Children’s Activities Week this year.

Make sure you show your child’s activity providers just how much you appreciate them by taking part in whatever they do decide to organise for Children’s Activities Week. Whether it’s participating in dressing up, entering giveaways or competitions or even deciding to give a new activity a try.

You can also choose to post images to social media, tag your activity provider and use the hashtag #childrensactivitiesweekAU

What this means for providers…..

We want the celebrations to be as unique and as diverse as you all are. Be creative! The aim is to educate and celebrate the industry. Some ideas can include:
  • Hosting an open day for families to showcase what services you offer.
  • Running a giveaway
  • Doing a live performance/activity on Facebook live
  • Host a fancy dress day for your class e.g princess and superheroes
  • Running a colouring competition
  • Running a tutorial or ‘how-to’ class
  • Surprising your team with cupcakes
  • Having a face painter come to your class
  • Hosting a Halloween themed party to celebrate with your team
  • Thank families for their support this year

How to do this?

  • Promote what you will do to celebrate the occasion on social media, via email and through your classes
  • Use the logo “We’re part of…” (below)
  • Share ‘your story’, ‘your why’ with local media
