Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Although he was achieving good results, he wasn't reaching his full potential because his love for learning had been destroyed & hence his grades were steadily declining.

Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Completely failed by the system, he hated school, was always tired & homework time was a major frustration for both of us. He was severely frustrated & quickly heading to become yet another ADHD statistic.

Sci-Bono Discovery Centre

Although we’ve already been there 4 times, my boys were quite eager to join another field trip to the Sci-Bono. We were fortunate not to have traffic & arrived early for a 9am start.

They started off with the Murray & Roberts building project. Big & small alike had loads of fun building the walls & breaking them down again & then packing all the material away. Then off to exploring electricity & various other exhibits. They also had an opportunity to build a bottle rocket & shoot that up in the air. Finally after 1pm, we needed to bribe the kids with the promise to come again in order to get them to agree to going home because it was quite busy due to the school holidays…

After the holidays we’ll plan a 9-3 day at the centre, in order for the kids to roam around & explore all the exhibits at their leisure whilst the moms relax with coffee & a “kuiertjie”…
