So my favorite family member that is not related to me, gave me & my boys the most wonderful book the last time I was in SA. 50 Dangerous Things (you should let your children do). We've had so much fun doing little things that the book says are dangerous. The kids even spent a little time doing blogposts themselves about their latest adventure.
So far we've licked a 9-volt battery, driven a car, spent an hour blindfolded, and learn the art of swordplay. Hmm, maybe we should whittle next - but hopefully with pa-pa in charge.
