Things to do with your kids

by

Recently a couple of mums have asked me about the activities that we do to keep our kids stimulated and challenged.

There is a list of our top 11 sites (in no particular order):
1. Queensland Writer's Centre
2. QUT Cube
3. State Library of Queensland
4. NIDA
5. QPAC
6. Brisbane Arts Theatre
7. BrisBricks
8. Sciencecentre
9. Queensland Museum
10. Powerhouse
11. ChildWrites

We found out the hard way that you miss out the best events if you are not on the mailing lists for each of these sites!!

What do you do to challenge your kids?

What activities can be done for no or low cost?

We pulled out one of our favourite books last week, Palour Games for Modern Families (http://www.amazon.com/Parlour-Games-Modern-Families-Myfanwy/dp/1846143470) by Myfanway Jones and Spiri Tsintziras.

What a laugh!! You know that laughing where your sides hurt and tears stream down your cheeks ... That was the laughing you could hear in our house.

When was the last time you laughed so hard it hurt?
