#BudgetActivity #7: Searching for Treasure! . Jess and her family visited the Scratch Patch at the V&A Waterfront the other day and she was super impressed with this inexpensive, yet fun, family excursion. . The kids loved hunting and collecting their own treasure while scratching through a large patch of semi-precious stones. . The moms loved all the pretty sparkly jewelry, of course, and realised that starting a jewelry making hobby with their daughters might just be an amazing idea. . Cost: Between R22.00 and R120.00 per container of stones collected (prices depending on the size of the bag / container). . . . . . . #mylifeinphotos #ilovesouthafrica #lifewithkids #neverstopexploring #familyfriendlyza #capetownbest #wanderlust #lifestyleblogger #momlifestyle #thatsdarling #familytravel #flashesofdelight #travelblogger #travelwithkids #wedotourism #smilemore #withkids #budgettravel #budgetfriendly #familytime #kidfriendly #kidswhoexplore #scratchpatch
