A new website, fristundir.is, compiling information on how children in Iceland can spend their leisure time, including sports, music and handicrafts, was recently launched in three languages, Icelandic, English and Polish.
“Iceland has changed. There are not just Icelanders here anymore,” the website’s creator, Letetia Beverly Jonsson, told Fréttabladid. “There are many residents of foreign origin here now who have children and it is important that they are included.”
The first version of fristundir.is only includes leisure-time activities in the capital region, but Jonsson plans to add information on various hobbies from all parts of the country to her website next year.
