The August issue is hot off the press and this month’s feature is all about extracurricular activities. We’ve rounded up Beijing’s hottest clubs and activities for kids, including volunteer groups that need your help. And some of Beijing’s top students tells beijngkids how their extracurriculars helped them excel.
Elsewhere in the magazine, Olivia Lee gives us the lowdown on image-conscious eating and Jacqueline Chen explains her motive for opening Eliott’s Place for special needs children.
For adventure seekers, splash around at Crab Island – a haven of fun summer activities from swimming in a faux beach to fishing in a huge pond. There is also Butterfly Valley, with over 30 species of butterflies.
And while the weather is still hot, picnic outside with German sausages and a Caesar salad at Villa Castanea. Or stroll through Beiing’s lovely hutongs and chow down at one of our Top 5 Hutong Eats. If you’ve got chefs-in-the-making, whip up your own meal with Xiyun Yang – as she says goodbye with her last column. This month, she’s sharing her secrets about making a spicy salad.
See what our regular columnists are writing about this month. Beijing Baba Gareth Jones gets clever in how to limit tech with your kids. Bribery just doesn’t always work! Jennifer Ambrose is saved by Sports Beijing, in the way of sports activities for her kids.
As always, find kid-friendly events, search our Directories for anything and everything you’ll need in Beijing, and read about other families’ travel destinations.
