JK Rowling - Harry Potter at Home

 

 

Both my kids are sensitive wee souls (I tried to read Roald Dahls Witches and that totally freaked them out. Is reading HP books a really bad idea for them

 

 

As a kid, Witches freaked me out too haha!! I would say Harry Potter is nowhere near... especially the first couple

I didn't post that here as I dispense mine freely all the time!

 

Someone once accused me of being the most sarcastic person she had ever met, my reply:

 

*REALLY!????*

 

LOL

A lot of classical music is German, so I imagine you would be listening to it with a Kiwi accent!

canon have a website for printing and making paper models.  Used to make these in an after-hours call centre job many many years ago so has been around for a while. 
Quick look through (train models) would suggest maybe 8yrs (1 star difficulty eg box train like you used to get on weetbix boxes to make) upwards to "that will take a while" (10hrs+).

For those that don't have Netflix they have free documentaries on you tube at the moment.
Apparently they have free docos for education use normally on Netflix and come with education resources   ( I haven't personally looked at these )

dejadeadnz: One year free subscription to Balance mediation app (iOS only)

 

Should be good for these times!

 

Waking Up meditation by Sam Harris.

 

  • What makes Waking Up different?
    There are hundreds of meditation apps on the market, and several do a fine job of teaching the basic principles of mindfulness. But most present the practice as though it were an ancient version of an executive stress ball—whereas it’s more like the Hubble Space Telescope.
    The purpose of meditation isn’t merely to reduce stress or to make you feel better in the moment—it’s to make fundamental discoveries in the laboratory of your own mind.

  • The Fine Print
    Waking Up is risk-free. If you don’t find it valuable, we will give you a full refund. No questions asked.
    If you would like to use the app but truly cannot afford it, please email us at support@wakingup.com so that we can give you a free account.
    While we operate a business, we believe that money should never be the reason why someone can’t gain access to Waking Up.

He also has Meditation for Children
