Hi we are currently stationed in Kaiserslautern, Germany. We have two little girls and another baby on the way. Lately I have been feeling like our resources are limited for extra curricular/educational activities for the kids. It always seems there is a waiting list for the places on post... And the places off post are SO pricey. My kids have been stuck in the house all day, every day just watching tv. I don't know what to do to keep them stimulated, and it is overwhelming. I can tell that they are wanting to do more and I feel like a bad parent for not having more resources available. My questions are: 1 can anyone recommend some good places to take my kids during the day that I maybe don't know about?
2what are some indoor things I can be doing with them? Like certain art/science projects, etc.
I am still trying to get my German drivers license, so that is ANOTHER reason I feel options are limited. I will be so happy when I finally get that taken care of.
Re: Germany limited resources??
Once you get off base and start traveling, it will get better. There is so much to do over there, especially with spring coming.
I was just lamenting that we have less to do, now that we are back in FL. And other than gymnastics
This winter feels like it has lasted forever! I understand feeling trapped inside. But, try to embrace life in Germany and do as the Germans--get outside, despite the cold! Just getting out, your kids hearing others speak German is go
Why do you need to get a German driver license? I lived in Wiesbaden and when we were on post, we had to take a test and apply for a USAEUR license instead. You can drive in Germany with that. Some countries you need an international drivers license. <
I can honestly say that I do not think there are any less activities for young children over here (we are in the same area) than in the States. In fact, I feel like we are almost too busy with activities. Between preschool, swimming, soccer
