such as outdoor fun), meal preparations this summer demands that it not only LOOKS like fun but tastes great too.
This realization hit as I was about to prepare yet another Peanut Butter sandwich, another boiled egg, another macaroni and cheese salad, another pink, white or brown bowl of porridge and another same old slices of cucumber as someone has suddenly developed very specific, very non-meat eating dietary patterns, so it got me web searching for fun foods for kids.
As a DIY Mama, I was thrilled with what I saw and was even more thrilled that many of the recipes allowed for use of local produce. With way too many options, I am choosing some basics that require ingredients moms in Jamaica and the diaspora are likely to have:

Whew this has been long in coming mamacitas, But in addition to a recent family tragedy we just had to give you the most comprehensive list we could come by. For Weeks on end we have been asking via varied networks for a listing of Summer programmes for Kids in Jamaica and referencing previous programmes in our 2013 list After that almost mind numbing process, voila.. Here goes. Please note some programmes have extended their registration deadlines so be sure to call and confirm.
As a mama who has actively been searching for summer programmes for my own toddler, I was often annoyed that the lists were not categorised by age groups and so we tried as best as possible to highlight the age groups for ease of reference.
As we continue to build lists that are useful to you mamas, do remember to share all the activities you know in varied parishes across Jamaica. Please send all information to JamaicanMommies@gmail.com
Please note you can also download the list via Jamaican Mommies Summer Activities Register 2014
Special Thanks as well to the many organizations, other parenting networks, friends and all of you in the webosphere who shared activities with us for inclusion in our listing.
