Thanks god its friday! - goes the cliche statement. Are you cracking your brain trying to figure out what are you going to do with your curious and energetic kids? In face Colombo offers ample opportunities for you and your whole family to enjoy the times. Read the article to find out!!!

Parks

The park is the perfect place to set up play times with other like-minded parents. Even if you venture to the park on your own, chances are you will discover other caregivers to chat with as you safely watch your child interact and play with new friends on the playground. Even if your child is painfully shy, the park offers a non-threatening area where she can see how her peers play and interact. Before long, you might discover your toddler wandering over to the nearest child and engaging in the same activity.

Whatever the season, going to a park builds lifetime memories for you and your child. Put on bathing suits and head to your city park swimming pool on long, hot summer days. Pack a picnic to enjoy afterward and bring a blanket so your child can nap under the refreshing shade of a tree. Bring a ball and listen to the crisp sound of fallen leaves as you play catch amid the changing colors of fall. Bundle up your child and discover a winter wonderland.

Also there are some recently developed recreatinal areas in Colombo and suburbs which will give a great opportunity for your child to explore the environment and people around...
