My family and I celebrated 4 birthdays this lockdown. I am not sure if it is a biological clock "thing" but both my kids, my grandmother and our dog have their birthdays in April. My grandmother celebrated her 95th birthday! Wow, isn't that amazing? My grandmother lived through the Great Depression, she lived through "Runder pes" pandemic (Similar to Ebola), years of drought and World War 2. I remember she always placed gift wrapping paper right back under her mattress to save for the next year and taught us to carefully take off the sellotape so the paper would not tear.

Our Autumn edition of Things To Do With Kids Magazine is available with great tips on parenting, baking activities and more!   READ IT ONLINE.

Publishing: We plan as if we will be able to plan isolation vacations and outings by end of June or at least be able to start planning like South African Tourism encourages us to do. (Stay home now, so you can travel later). The odds seem top be tipping in favour of online only. We will be in contact with our advertisers regarding this as Level 4 details unfold.  

Things to do With Kids is a South African magazine which encourages being a responsible tourist in your own town and country. This family-friendly magazine advocates quality time together as families and of course, allows you to collect memories rather than things.

If you have virtual events to share with us, please feel free to
add them online. Make contact with us, if you'd like to feature your business.

Thanks again to a fantastic team, readers and businesses for the lovely collaboration!  
Have a superb week!
