What to do, what to do…

Always on the lookout for things to do to get us out of the house, I often consult www.pacamomes.com . They have loads of ideas and information about what to do with children in the PACA region. But now, happily, they have gone one further. Now they have a magazine with loads of ideas, activities and offers to keep you and the kids busy for days.

You can find the magazine in kiosques or you can sign up for a subscription on their website.

Bravo Pacamomes!


Nuts and bolts

On one of those interminable rainy days, at my wit’s end for what to do with my two young children I happened upon a box of assorted hardware. The lightbulb went on. I gathered the children around the table and gave them a pile of all shapes and sizes of nuts, bolts, screws and the like. They played with these for a good hour, while I had time for a tea and a breather. Just goes to show how desperation can sharpen one’s creativity and survival skills.
