    at the moment DD doesn't do any activities, she seems to get more than enough out of the 3 days she spends at daycare each week.
    We used to do gymbaroo but stopped when she started daycare - we're a bit time poor these days.
    she is dying to go to ballet but i told her she has to wait till she is 3 which is in july - mostly cause we will be away for a lot of april and may so she would miss so much of it and you have to pay for the whole term up front.

    DD is nearly 4 ..

    and we do
    swimming - $150 term
    gymnastics - $100 term
    dance class - $150 term
    and occasionally a fun dancing session which is $4 session.

    Have only really started anything this year though ... before then we did some casual dancing and gymnastic sessions on a payg basis .. but nothing regular.

    It DOES work out really expensive. I take my hat off to parents of large families as it must cost a fortune.

    DD1 swimming lesssons $100/term - now free though as part of a family gym/pool membership. This can include gymnastics too, I just need to find the time.

    We are looking into junior hockey as well, I think its about $40.

    DS (4)
    Swimming- $55 per block- block =5 lessons and paid up front.
    Soccer- $115 for the season + $100 boots and shin guards (same boots as Mummy ). Game on Saturday mornings, training is 30min before the game.
    Dancing- break dancing and Acrobatics, 30min each, one after the other. $7 per lesson paid up front at the start of each term plus $35 insurance fee and concert at the end of the year.

    He also does speech therapy but that's not really an 'activity'. He does that weekly at a cost of $80 per session paid on the day.

    He also goes to daycare 5 days @ $285 per/week (is that an activity?)

    Next year I would really like both of us to do piano lessons as well. Can't wait.

    DD wants to do a craft activity and music. At this stage the music we do is just at home and nothing structured or organised, and I don't know that I want to do that until she's at least a little older. She loves to sing and dance and play on her electric guitar. But I'm looking at a craft activity for her.

    Anyone know where she can do knitting? I'd like to be able to do it so I could teach her, but it's not something that I was ever any god at. She learnt in Victoria with my step mother and did 2 rows of knitting unassisted after doing a row where her hands were held the whole time, and a row where she was watched and assisted for some of it. She picked it up fast and enjoyed it.
