Recommended Reads – Winter with kids… ideas to while away the bad weather

For the most amazing collection of ideas for play time visit the recently launched Playopedia @ Childhood 101.

She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
