A Magic Day at Magic Day Fun Park is it possible? Nicosia - Larnaca

Hello everybody,

Running, climbing, jumping are the main sport activities - energy consuming - for children of all ages. A large playground with generous spaces like Magic Day Fun Park is one of the best places in Cyprus for these activities.

Magic Day Fun Park is one of the biggest playgrounds, with indoor and outdoor areas close to Nicosia. What we liked is that they have the biggest toys offer for toddlers and special changing room, lots of trampolines and bouncy castles, and they have a large parking space for you and your friends.
This venue is located between Nicosia and Larnaca in the beautiful village of Dali. It is a wonderful place where children can run from one place to the other for many hours. 

The outdoor playground has 3-4 bouncy castles from very big ones to smaller, slides and climbing areas, trampolines and lots of bikes to ride on. There are lots of tables for parents to relax ans enjoy the lovely mountain view.

The indoor playground is very big also, it is built on three floors. There are lots of places to climb and run here too. With slides, tunnels, balls, and an area for toddlers, and a 3D cinema included in the entrance fee price it offers hours of entertainment for all children. The indoor playground it is an enclosed space, where you will be able to let your kids run free and it is covered with rubber tiles.
Children can play at Magic Day war with cannons throwing soft balls, climb safely in the inflatable mountain of 7 meters (special occasions), and jump on the trampoline, enter the inflatable castle with large slides or even to sit on the tentacles of big octopus and twirl them.

The playground opened in 2012 in a completely new and modern building with nice interiors and exteriors, a place which creates a relaxing atmosphere for the parents and joyful one for the kids.
The Party Room is a happy place full of colors where you can celebrate birthdays and baptism parties.

The parents can enjoy two relaxing spaces, one designated smoking area where you could also play backgammon or table, read a book or browse a magazine, or even to watch their favorite team on one of the two screens available.

Their food offers are variate with a nice selection of hot and cold beverages and healthy food for kids, too. Fresh salads, small pleasures, wraps and burgers, grilled dishes on the BBQ and Italian dishes are some of the best choices at Magic Day.
Extra Tip, at your party you can enjoy the buffet of your choice from a variety of mouth-watering dishes.

"Magic Day" can transform your day in a magic one… a day spent with your children, a day full of fun and laughs, a day made for your family!

Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!

Solomou – More than just a garden centre – Nicosia

Hello everybody,

After I found out about Solomou and then I have noticed in their presentation that they are saying about themselves that “are more than just a garden center” I put them on my list and I run to see them.
I am really happy with the new discovery as I love very much flowers and I always love to see them, it is fantastic also to go to a place where you can find much more…

The gardens are simply beautiful, and you can visit each area by type of plant: fruit and nut trees, climbers, trees, outdoor and indoor shrubs, vegetables and ornamental etc.

The kids loved to see how the grapes are growing and the olives in the trees, and have a wonderful walk between so many colors and shapes. We relaxed too and we found that walks in Solomou garden can be an entertaining activity for children and there are plenty of interesting things to learn too. The location of the garden is in fact between Larnaca and Nicosia so it is very easy to reach from anywhere.

When I saw the playground I was surprised.

Such a big outdoor playground with so many toys around, I could not believe my eyes. Also the children they just run away to do as many things as possible. The playground is gorgeous, big, lots of slides, lots of climbing surrounded by comfortable chairs and tables where you could stay and relax while checking every move. It was fantastic. Also the coffee shop had plenty of coffee choices and snacks at very accessible prices (one Filter coffee just 1.50 euro). 

With free WiFi access, baby changing facilities, many magazines and books to read, I could stay there for the entire day. I loved it. Kids loved it. Definitely I will come back for more…
Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!

The view delights at Theo Sunset Bay Restaurant – Pafos

Hello everybody,

Driving in Cyprus is one of the beautiful ways to spend my time. Taking the children in the car and wondering where we will stop today.

Singing and laughing while learning how to watch and to notice things, views, people, houses and animals and why not looking at the sun’s disappearing like a magician. Is it a place for the moon in the sky tonight? Is it the sun let her show off? Or maybe is just a little white bunny crossing the sky and picking up all the stars in a bucket? How we will be able to sleep if the bunny collects them all? Definitely we have to count for the sheep, until the morning when we will wake up early to see what happens with the sky while we were sleeping….

This is why the roads in Cyprus will take you definitely, to a special place where you could see … if you keep your eyes open.

For us it was a restaurant towards Coral Bay. We stopped, we found a table, we let the kids play in the play area and we simply breath the view. It was one of those corners of the island where the land meets the sea and melts into a gorgeous beach. The beach was just loosing steps in front of the big waves. A “mélange” of colours that takes your breath and just makes you wish to wait a little bit longer until the clock has run out of time.

This is what we found at Theo Sunset Bay Restaurant.

On top of this, there was the nice little outside playground in the breeze and a fantastic swimming pool. Then there was the food. It did not matter that we were waiting for a little bit longer because when it came, we were again delighted. I believe that a photo can say everything … just to let you know… the taste was fantastic.
We were happy and the children quiet and tired after such a wonderful time spent here!

Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!

Rhythmic and Artistic Gymnastic at Vikentia Athletics Center Limassol

Hello everybody,

First thing I liked about Vikentia Athletics Center Limassol is that you can do so many activities in the same place, then I liked the facilities they hold and, last, but not the least, the prices.
We would like to to introduce you one of the best Clubs in Limassol where children can start practice Artistic Gymnastic and Rhythmic Gymnastic

Rhythmic gymnastics is an activity in which individuals or teams of 5 manipulate one or two pieces of apparatus: clubs, hoop, ball, ribbon, rope and Free (no apparatus). Top rhythmic gymnasts must have many qualities: balance, flexibility, coordination, and strength are some of the most important. Artistic gymnastics is a discipline of gymnastics where gymnasts perform short routines (ranging from approximately 30 to 90 seconds) on different apparatus, with less time for vaulting (see lists below). These are sports which require many hours of work but also they offer lots of rewards. It is always a pleasure to see kids concentrating their efforts in other kind of activity then the usual ones.

Gymnastic can be started by boys and girls beginning with 4 years old. The training is provided by qualified experienced trainers in small groups, in a sport hall newly equipped. The hall is approved by the Cyprus Gyms Licensing Authority.

At Vikentia parents can find also something to do in the same time their children do gymnastic. One activity I liked for the parents was the Circuit Training. There is a special gym hall were a trainer guides you to pass from one apparel to the other at certain time intervals until you finish the entire routine and all categories of muscle. I can guarantee that this can make anybody slimmer.

We loved their indoor swimming pool which is very clean and well maintained with the main advantage that has small depth at one end which allows quick learning for kids, especially the ones that are not very happy in the water. This is also a very big advantage for mums and their babies swimming lessons. I know from my own experience is easier to hold the baby in small water than in a deeper one. Among their services they offer swimming lessons for babies and also for adults, free swimming for adults in the evening between 18:00 and 21:00 and aqua aerobics.

Other activities offered by the Centrum are: dancing lessons (ballet, modern dancing, hip-hop, and local dances), fitness, and aerobics – yoga, steam-sauna, power plate, Pilates, weight lifting, and tennis lessons. Transportation is also available.

All teachers speak Greek and English language and their web page is full of information both languages.
So there is everything for everybody as I see.
Why not let’s give it a try!

Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!

Welcome to the Cyprus Museum of Natural History Nicosia

Hello everybody,

Kids Fun in Cyprus would like to invite you, this time to discover the Cyprus Museum of Natural History. Knowledge and Education are the main targets of the Museum for the children that are visiting their premises. Taking the children out of the class room, and giving them the possibility to see… to learn from experience is the best opportunity for teachers and parents to succeed to raise their interest about the subjects taught. Children are all the time interested to find out more and more and learn new and exciting things about the world they live in and we should be present, to reply at their never ending questions.

The museum comprises of more then 8 topics with 2500 exhibits and also from the museum children can watch the production room of Carlsberg beer.
The main topics are Mineral Wealth, Marine Life, Paleontology, Paphos Forest, Larnaca Salt Lake, Animal Kingdom, Insects and Rural Yard.

Since last August the museum has in its premises a three meters shark. Also not to be missed the Dinosaurs replicas that can be found in their yard.
The tour of the Museum starts in the first hall which presents characteristic sedimentary and volcanic rocks from Troodos, from the Mesaoria plain and elsewhere.
In the second hall we will see the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea with many of the species found there, such as shells, ostracea and fish. The Paleontology is showing to us the fossils of Cyprus originate mainly from marine species, since the majority of sedimentary rock formations are of marine origin. In the third hall, the visitor can find two of the most important habitats in Cyprus, dioramas of the Paphos Forest and the Larnaka Salt Lake are represented.

We now come to the fourth hall, which is divided in different sections where the visitor can study the various species of the Cyprus Fauna, their anatomy and habits, their feeding requirements. In this section we can see domestic animals that used to be accommodated in a traditional Cypriot yard, such animals are donkeys, sheep, goats, cows, rabbits, and more. These animals have been raised by Cypriots for centuries and they provided people with necessities which were essential for their survival.
Something really admirable is the dinosaur replicas who guard the gardens of the museum. These replicas are the creations of Mr. George Florides.
Kindergartens and schools are welcome to visit the museum!

Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!
