Here are some kids’ holiday events that might interest your child

We are barely into the two –month school holidays and parents are still looking for ways to keep their kids busy and out of trouble until school resumes. While there are many articles on how to keep them busy, there are not any on specific events a child can participate in during the holidays.

I chanced on a few as I was looking for activities that children with special needs can enjoy. Unfortunately, I did not find any activities for children with special needs but will keep on looking.

My research also revealed that parents residing in the major counties in Kenya also lack activities for children to enjoy most of the event organizers just concentrate on Nairobi. If you are an event organizer, this presents a great opportunity for you.Here are some of the events,
