School’s out for Summer… Part 1

schools_out

Over the past week or so, parents have been approaching me, with a certain look of fear in their expressions, and asking for ideas of how they can keep their children occupied over the summer break. Always a tricky one for mums and dads all over the world - I know i am looking at loads of different activities for my two to do.

Thankfully, we have the wonderful world of the Internet and Technology close at hand to help us fill a few of the long hours and days that lie ahead.
