Posted:Ok guys this is where i need you to put your thinking caps on as i am about out of ideas.

The problem: What to do with the kids over the 6 weeks holidays that cost no money what so ever and doesn't involve any types of travel other than walking.Something unusaul would help too as the things i have planned we do anyway whether its the holidays or not

what i have so far:
Going to the park..
Going to the museum
Going for a walk along side the cananal
Dress up Pirate day for my youngests birthday(5th august just incase your in the area and fancy popping in. can not afford a party of any kind so have decided to do it this way)
And usual Arts and crafts stuff


i really can not think of anything else to do and they are already complaining about the fact that they are going to be bored stupid over the holidays. *sigh* frown i know i don't need to do something special every day..

Posted:ben-ja-men that sounds like a really fun idea i shall look into it.

polarity as ever you confuse me with with your techy stuff(yes even with links to it) ubblol i am going to blame the lack of coffee wink

Seb really good idea, there is one spot where the 'not so nice children who all look the same' hang out... does anyone have any hand grendaes? i would love them to find them. only joking of cause biggrin

Fox hug its been a while hope your ok. I have tried mentioning books to my oldest as they are doing a reading thing at the librabry. he just gave me the "What are you on about woman" look. although he is very into darren Shan not sure on the spelling. although he likes the idea of the crystal growing stuff.. he's very sciency bless him. He's very into things that don't take alot of effort rolleyes and he's not even a teeneger yet ubblol

Posted:shadow puppet shows are the best.
A lamp, a horde of toys or cardboard and a white sheet and you are laughing.


Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.
