Tips for surviving the holidays with newborn and 5y/o?!

Does anyone have any advice on how to get through the summer holidays with a new baby and a 5 year old?

Luckily DD's birthday is just before the holidays so we've bought lots of things that I can sit and do with her while baby naps. ("Make your own" kits)

But how else can I tackle the boredom? And how do you survive your first trip out (e.g to the park etc) alone with 2?! Is it going to be chaos?!

Any ideas and experience would be greatly appreciated.... starting to panic nowgrin

Sling! I had 2 under 2 at the beginning of the year and it was far easier to put the baby in a sling and carry on with my toddler. I know your DD is older but I'd have quiet things for if the baby is feeding or sleeping and then I'd try to get out as much as you can.
