Babysitting week end : enjoy the first Sunday of the month
In most of the cities, not all of them because we don't want to talk nonsense, the museums are free the first Sunday of the month. In addition to being one of the most original outing ideas, it will also allow you to do a little general culture with the children. Don't forget to ask your parents for permission beforehand!
A time to encourage creativity
Do not hesitate to propose manual activities to the child to allow him to express his imagination and at the same time, to externalize his feelings. Modeling clay, beads, crepe paper, salt dough or even feathers... A wide range of accessories is available to keep your child busy in a playful way.
