Children Lifestyle

Christmas Holiday 2015 | Places to see and go

schools-out-for-summer Having a 3 & 6 year old on holiday for 5 weeks I thought of planning a few things to do to with them.

I was looking for activities to do with the boys that firstly don’t break the bank and that is age apporiate for both to enjoy together.

We have done a few if not most of these but I thought it would be nice to share with you how we like to explore our City.
