How to en­joy the last days of the hol­i­days

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - JELLYBEAN JOURNAL - JBJ RE­PORTER

SOME re­ally cool movies, Planet 51, Where the Wild

Things Are and Vel­veteen Rab­bit have popped up just in time for a fi­nal fling at the cin­ema be­fore it’s back to school on Wed­nes­day…

Oth­er­wise, you could turn to Lisl Barry and her fam­ily’s 52 Ways to Grow Creative

Chil­dren (Ja­cana) for fab­u­lous ideas on how to keep busy, make beau­ti­ful things, learn mag­i­cal tricks and ex­per­i­ment in the kitchen mak­ing yummy, healthy treats for your play­mates.

Guid­ing the way into a fan­tasy world of pure plea­sure, the two gor­geous Barry girls, Jade and Kai, and their friends show just how easy it is to have fun – no mat­ter where you live, how much money your par­ents have, whether there is rain or shine – as long as you have a lit­tle out­side space.

The book is clev­erly or­gan­ised into the four sea­sons, has an in­dex and sim­ple di­a­grams.

Most im­por­tantly, Lisl is very se­ri­ous about pass­ing on the mes­sage to teach kids to “tread lightly on the earth”.

“For the sake of our chil­dren’s fu­ture we can surely all do some­thing which would im­prove our use of and ap­proach to the earth.
