Keeping children amused


Dear Hillary,

Have you any suggestions to keep school age children interested during these school holidays? There seems to be about 10 weeks of them!



Dear Joy,

I believe you need some planning here. A big calendar sheet on the wall with one movie a week (Kung Fu Panda is great) marked off. Make a day out of grocery shopping after cleaning out the fridge. They do the work, you just record the items. There are many tourist attractions you can use, and again make them one a week after the movies and domestic chores. Cleaning the family car will take up one day and they are paid, since you don’t have to go to the car wash you usually use. With a little imagination you will fill your calendar. Enjoy the children!
