  • Shark in the Park

    I love the resources and the kids seemed to enjoy too. I had a hard time today with a mixed-age group (from 6 to 14!), but the abundance of differentiated activities Fiona offers made it much easier for me to make the time spent together meaningful.

    • Thank you so much for leaving a review Veronika! I’m so pleased the activities were useful. I often have mixed age groups aswell, so being able to pick and choose but having the kids working together is important for me too.
