School is OUT! Things to do with your toddler

School Break - Things to do

I’m stunned at how quickly we have come to the end of the first school term. Our son has certainly achieved so much this term, still that we’re already at the point that we need to have some idea of how our son will be kept active.

If that doesn’t happen, I am sure hubby will not be a happy camper as he works from home.

What have you got planned?

This past weekend our son’s class mom arranged a fantastic get together for the parents and their kids at Hennopstrails. It’s one of those places we tend to drive past not taking too much notice of it. It’s literally a short drive (less than 45 minutes) from Joburg a real Continue reading “Hiking Hennops Trails with 4 year olds …”

I don’t know how your kids are about eating lunch, specifically school lunch. Our young man won’t eat sarmies/sandwiches. At school they get sarmies at tea-break with either jam or peanut butter or whatever is going for the week.
