Discovering Italy Through a Child's Eyes

If it’s about time to consider going on a family vacation have you thought about going to Italy? Going to a new country with children often times can be exciting, but at the same time it’s a good idea to have a plan ahead of time so that everyone can enjoy their time in Italy to the fullest. As parents it’s up to you to come up with children friendly activities, and since they all entail either learning about the country by touring museums or having fun in other ways, you will definitely enjoy them as well. Seeing Italy through a child’s eyes will no doubt be worth it, besides the long plane ride there. Once you arrive your vacation should be a breeze because you will have so much fun.

Amusement Parks in Italy

Whether you like simple amusement parks or larger ones, there are many parks located in the north part of Italy. It may not be Disney, but its fun for children who enjoy roller coasters, water rides, and the like. If you’d prefer for your children to stay away from intense rides then there’s also laser shows and a log flume ride. Pick and choose what you’d like your children to participate in at a specific theme park and they’ll most likely be happy just walking around and enjoying the sights there too.

Exploring Nature at the Villa

If you have a larger family it’s a good idea to consider staying and enjoying Tuscany villa rentals, where a villa is located away from the busier part of town and is also surrounded by nature. It’s perfect for a family because it’s not only where you will stay for the duration of your trip, but it will also become a fun place to explore. Take your kids on nature walks, explain to them what the new wildlife is that you encounter, and do arts and crafts outside of the villa too. Your children will be content spending time outside of the villa simply because there are so many adventures to enjoy there!

Zoos in Italy

Speaking of nature and wildlife, how about taking your kids to a zoo while you’re in Italy? Yes, you can participate in all of these activities and more in the US or wherever you live, but it will still be fun to experience these activities in a new country as well. You’ll learn about new animals while experiencing new sites and sounds. There’s a zoo called ZOOSAFARI that’s located in Puglia and it is a safari style zoo, which means you can get up close to the animals. Have fun getting acquainted with giraffes, monkeys, and other exotic animals. Your kids will have a wonderful time and so will you. So next time someone says that Italy isn’t for kids – you can prove them wrong!

I loved Italy when I was there at age 14. We went on a tour and saw the big tourist attractions. The only bummer about the country at that time was that we could not drink the water, and we had to carry around our own toilet paper (it was just not in any rest room).

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
