Low Budget Kids' Stuff

In the past week we have taken two opportunities to fight the cabin fever of cowering in the one air conditioned room in our house to escape from the 102° heat. There is an exhibit of dinosaur fossils from Patagonia, Argentina, on display in Budva. The best part is that it is inexpensive (€5 per person, children under 5 are free), and very geared toward children. There is a place for digging up "fossils."
There are places to color, do "rubbings" of a dinosaur etching, play games on computer, put a giant puzzle together, even little egg-shaped chairs that close so your child can pretend to be a baby dino about to hatch.
Two of the girls' favorite things were the dinosaur they could "ride"
and the "insert your face here" picture.
We were also invited to a birthday party at a "mini zoo" which had some ponies, a pig, goats and rabbits that you could pet
 ducks, geese, a turkey and a peacock.

There was also a giant trampoline, slide, swings, seesaws and concession stand. And no entrance fee! You did pay €1 for 15 minutes on the trampoline, and I presume if you ride the ponies it costs something too, but a nice and inexpensive experience for sure.

Laura, you might enjoy this issue of The American Feminist:

Feminists for Life is a pro-life organization. All it does is try to help women avoid abortion, especially college-age women. It has had to focus very tightly to get stuff done.

Anyway, the organization recognizes that money is a huge reason that women cite for having an abortion. So it came up with lots of ways to cut costs. I imagine some of them won't be possible in Montenegro, but many will. Enjoy!
