Christmas Day in Bali with the kids

The presents are unwrapped, and Christmas lunch has sunk down to the depths of your stomach. The kids are occupied with new toys and books, Christmas cookies and cake, but you’re in Bali. Where else better to gather the family (post-lunch nap of course) for some unique experiences and activities?

For children with inexhaustible energy!

That’s right, Waterbom Bali! With attractions and rides that range from mellow, to moderate, all the way to extreme, there’s no doubt there’s fun to be had for the whole family.

For children who want a pony for Christmas!

A pony for Christmas? Yes, you can! From pony camp to beach tours, to riding lessons and more, Royal Sporthorse Bali is a great place for families to spend the day. Did we mention there’s a petting zoo?

For children with a creative streak!

Why not join an art class where you can pick up Balinese art and craft from local artists. Take home more than a souvenir with classes ranging from Keliki painting to Batik, and wood or stone and even fruit carving.

For children who are social media royalty!

Bali loves swings. Or rather, social media loves swings and Bali rose to the occasion. The Bali Swing park offers numerous swings ranging from 10m, 15m, 20m and 78m above ground, all overlooking the tropical greenery and river.

For children who love to get dirty!

How about mud wrestling? Mepantigan are unique Balinese cultural games that take place in a muddy rice field. There’s wrestling, tug-of-war, traditional dances to the gamelan, and all sorts of muddy fun.

Deck the halls!
