This is a workshop that didn’t exist when we were growing up so sometimes it’s hard to comprehend. But robotics and coding is very much part of our children’s lives so these workshops provide a great opportunity for them to further develop their skills and enhance their understanding of a world that will likely play a big part in their future. The skills they develop not only include the functional elements of coding and robotics but also learning about problem solving and team work.
Check out Junior Engineers for their workshops.

Getting the kids interested in cooking is a good first step in them understanding about being healthy and what foods are good for them… and moving in the right step for them to give you a night or two off (jk)! Come and Cook will teach your kids how to make and enjoy fresh, healthy foods. Cooking, eating and sharing should be an experience, not just a meal. Bon apetit!

There is always a battle with how much screen time is too much screen time when it comes to your kids – with no real simple formula (especially when we’re also guilty of too much screen time). But knowing that they have a general interest and fascination with it may provide an opportunity to tap into their incredible imaginations and steer them into the world of photography. With the quality cameras that phones have these days, the results of a fun and informative photography course could be amazing.
