Great Ideas for Kids Who Have Everything


Adopt Your Own Wild Child: Have you ever thought about owning your very own wild animal but your parents won’t let you? Well here is an opportunity. The National Zoo in Pretoria’s adopt-a-wild-child programme gives you the opportunity of adopting your own animal without having to feed it or clean up after it, as the zoo will do this on your behalf. For your contribution you will receive a personalized adoption certificate and a free entry to the zoo. Parents, this is a wonderful gift for children who share an enthusiasm for the wonders of the natural world. For more information visit the zoo’s website or call (012) 339-2700

Editor’s Note: My daughter’s birthday is a month before Christmas and as you can imagine there is nothing she doesn't get from family and friends over this period. Which leaves my husband and I completely stumped when trying to decide what we should give to her from ourselves, so when we heard about the adoption program we thought it was perfect. You can pick from a wide variety of animals which are up for 'adoption' and as I understand it the adoption money goes towards the care, maintenance and feeding of these animals so we think it's a really super cause and a wonderful gesture for your little one when they really don't need any more material things. It also helps to get children more involved in and teach them about the importance of conserving our Planet.
