School opens in two weeks and its time to prep the kids for another academic year. Here’s an easy paper backpack craft to create during the run-up to the first day of school!
It’s the last few days of summer, a new academic year is beginning. After long summer holidays, it is not always easy for children to come back to study and start a new school year. Moreover, it is wrong to expect that a child will tune in to learn and concentrate on lessons from the first days of school.
What does your kid’s school serve for lunch? So, what are your kids getting for lunch? Is it healthy? Fresh? Is it a well-prepared meal, or is it packed with too much sugar, preservatives and processed foods? Don’t know what the daily menu is? Don’t feel alone, not too many parents do.
Renata Lukasova is the Director of Čerstvá Sváča (Fresh Snack). With her many years of School Meal experience, she tells us what is good in the Czech school meal system, why ordering a warm meal at school is important and how parents can get involved in the school lunch eating habits of their kids.
Come summer and kids go crazy either in the pool or in the yard or gardens. Sometimes its a long walk in the woods to pick berries or mushrooms. While its only fair that they run around in shorts to beat the heat, it’s equally necessary to be prepared for ticks on them.
I always feel that among zillions of electronic toys, the basic jigsaw puzzle is actually losing its importance. As self-sufficient parents, we always want to provide the best for our kids and end up choosing the most expensive toys in the toy shop while the simple ones are left behind. The lovely jigsaw puzzle actually falls into that category.
Prague is not just a beautiful European city which is well-known for its historical squares, architectural ensembles, and cosy alleyways but also it surprises visitors of all ages with its enormously big and entertaining Prague Zoo. The Prague zoo takes the fourth place in the list of the best zoos in the world.
My little boy just will not eat dinner, let alone vegetables. Well, let me be honest, he eats but needs to be coaxed to do so. I tried everything, talking it out, being stern, being kind, preparing his fav-food, letting him skip a meal so he is hungry – but NO. It’s also true that kids of a certain age, get their mind off routine tasks (like eating!) and focus on more interesting things like games, blocks, tablets. So of course, eating is only just a mere activity that is on their back burner.
What do you think of when you say “summer”? For many of us, it is the sun, sandy beaches, and water; camping under the stars, or summer cookouts and barbecue. Even if you’re staying home, these themes are easy to incorporate into activities with your child and honor the season whilst having fun with the following activities!
A hot day is good enough to keep kids indoors and away from a heat wave. But how do you keep them busy? Well, a here’s a naughty monkey craft to keep little kids busy!
