Summer gymnastics

(Updated) My daughter had a classmate that practiced gymnastics. For a petite girl, she was agile, and could do backbends already (the yogi in me cried inside a little). She’s also around 4 years old. Personally I’m not very familiar with gymnastics and don’t know a lot of kids who practice the sport, or grownups … More Summer gymnastics

Hello, Kidzania!

I’m all for indoor play areas for children, but if there’s one thing that can make me not want to try a place out is a ridiculously high entrance fee. We have tried a lot of places, they all tend to be the same, so it’s a bit of a hard sell for me to … More Hello, Kidzania!

You don’t need to convince me that play is an important part of childhood, and that it’s integral to a child’s proper growth and development.
