Children’s Educational Activities Sites
The Crafty Crow – Crafts from around the world: Why not teach your child the history of Bretzelsonneg, or Pretzel Sunday, whilst making them together. This occurs on the 4th Sunday in Lent and on this day traditionally boys give the girl they like a pastry shaped as a pretzel. The larger the pretzel the more the boy likes the girl. If the girl feels the same way she will give the boy a decorated egg on Easter Sunday. On leap years the roles are reversed. This practice is celebrated in Luxembourg by singles and married couples.

Craft and Environmental Projects
Journaling and Life Book Projects – Why not start a scrap book, life book or journal with your child (depending on their age). You can include photos, old birthday cards, pictures, a family tree. Or just write notes to each other with older children. This can be an ongoing project, which creates some special one-to-one time with mum or dad. Alternatively Make a Story Book.
Make a Gratitude Jar with Your Children – This is a lovely activity to mark the New Year, a Birthday or whatever day you want to start. Teach children to be grateful for everyday wonders. Not a bad reminders for grown ups too!
Environmental websites for children – Why not take an interest in an environmental issue with one of these educational sites aimed at teaching children (aged 6+) about the environment.
