Atividades para fazer com as kids no Summer break

Hi Folks!

Summer is here, #GRAZADEUS!!

Finalmente sol, calor, biquíni, piscina, relax, praia .... e claro para a “alegria” das au pairs :


O que summer break significa para as kids: não ter de ir para a escola.

O que summer break significa para as au pairs: Crianças O DIA TODO em casa, ou seja, como dizia Maysa “meu mundo caiu”.

Ai você já começa a pensar “mas o que vou fazer com estes LINDOS o dia todo em casa? ”
