Game of Humanity cards

Last year we reviewed the Game of Humanity cards.

https://funmammasa.wordpress.com/2017/07/03/the-game-for-humanity-cards/

Thus brilliant set of cards were designed to spread positive gestures one card at a time.

The idea behind this concept is to pick a card, complete the random act of kindness and leave the card with the person you gifted /helped for them to pay it forward.

15 things to do that won’t cost you money

Here’s a list of 15 things you can do with your family this weekend that won’t cost you much money .

  • Visit the park – we have so many amazing parks on Cape Town. My favourite is the Greenpoint Biodiversity park. It even has an amazing fenced in play area for little kids.
  • Go sightseeing – I recommend a trip to the V&A, they have a free walking history tour. Just grab a map at the tourist information centre and follow the maps and signage.

  • Play a board game – when last did your family sit down to monopoly or scrabble? My boys are currently enjoying Risk.
  • Visit the library – go grab some new books and havd a chilled weekend relaxing with a good read.
  • Try a new recipe- the internet is full of devine recipes. Pick one to treat the family with.
  • Draw something- you don’t need to be an artist to draw. Try your hand at nature journaling. Take a book and some pencils outside and sketch what you see.
  • Camp out – if you have a tent put it up in the back yard . Build a bonfire and let the kids camp outside for the night. If you can’t camp build a table blanket fort and spend sometime in the fort reading to the kids.
  • Watch a movie – between DSTV, Netflex, YouTube and the internet your choices are unlimited . Or you could go old school and rent some dvds. Don’t forget the popcorn.
  • Learn a new skill – take the time to start that diy project you’ve been dreaming up or trying a new craft.
  • Budget- sit the family down and work out an entertainment budget for the month. Get the kids to make lists of things they would like to do as a family.
  • Make a time capsule- collect a box and everyone writes letter to their future self if puts in an item that is special to them. Agree to open in 2030.
  • Go through old photos – the kids will enjoy seeing younger photos of themselves and it’s always fun to relive a memory.
  • Exercise -take a walk,join a fun run or go for a bicycle ride.
  • Go geocatching – Navigating to find caches.Learn more on Geocaching.com: bit.ly/2sVBwOe

  • Make paper aeroplanes – teach the kids to make paper aeroplanes and race them.

Chess for Chicas

Meet Sophie ….

Sophie is a 9 year old dynamic young girl with a passion for chess. So much so that she has not only written her first book to encourage other girls to learn to play but also has her own range of pink chess boards.

I was honoured to receive her book for review. Having loved the game of chess as a child and taught my children how to play I was both curious and excited to see this unique book.

I was not dissapointed. This informative, well organised book is broken down into step by step techniques with several practice examples.

It was easy to read and fun to follow.

The layout was exciting and even though it’s written for girls this handy guide is perfect for everyone just starting out learning the game.
