Many museums granted us this opportunity, a chance to visit expositions of original art objects that are of cultural and historical importance. And this without leaving the comport of your home.

For any parent, one of the top-of-mind concerns is searching for the best way to channel the energy of the “everlasting batteries” – the children. While giving them the possibility to play video games or watch toons may help to settle them down for some time, physical activity is the best solution to steer their energy into the right course. And it is the parents’ responsibility to make sure that kids find the chosen activity interesting and entertaining, otherwise, they won’t want to do it. The first thing that comes into mind is team sports. However, with all the benefits that sports bring, it is essential to be savvy in your choices. Some team sports call for a certain age range so when you choose a kind of sport for your toddler, pay attention to the age requirements. Luckily, there is an activity that hits the spot for kids of all ages – dancing!
