Toddler Summer Fun

This Summer my big boy being 2 and a half I find there are more fun things to do and Summer isn't quite desolate anymore with long hours inside due to the intense heat we get in Malta.

And here is my list of things one can do!  Any other ideas yourselves?

  • Visit the Natural History Museum
  • Visit Ghar Dalam (a cave where animal remains suggesting Malta was once part of Africa where found)
  • Boat ride around our harbours and/or Blue Grotto (a natural cave with lovely blue waters)
  • Horse Drawn carriage ride around the capital
  • A train ride - well not a train like any outsiders now it but a fun trip anyway!
  • Visit some gardens
  • Beaches and more beaches - that goes without saying here ha!
  • Sleep under the stars on our roof - since we do not have a backyard but a big roof which I use for hanging clothes and bbqs, it will now be extended for "camping"
  • Go to Buskett (our man made forest kinda thing) and look at the many bugs there are and try identify them
  • OF course since my son is right now plane-a-holic visiting the airport to see take offs and landings is a must (which has been going on for a month already!)
Most if not all of the above are now possible to do courtesy of the new bus system (rather than using my car) so it will be more fun and adventerous for the little guy.  I am so excited about it all and will update you on our adventures of course every week :)

Nice wonderful plans Mel and I'm sure they will keep Greg occupied :) If you need someone to baby sit Maya in the mean time just ask. I don't have big plans for this summer since I'll still be working everyday but still will be enjoying loads of sea and bbq's :)

Hi Mel, glad you already have great plans for this summer. If you need someone to babysit Maya in the mean time please ask :) I don't have any plans yet since I'll still be at work and then I'll decide according to the energy level left since running out with the car in this terrible heat is already exhausting me. Enjoy summer 2011 XX
