Spring is here... I think... maybe.... sort of.... some days.... yay! :) Here's what we talked about this past month. (In case you want an email reminder, subscribe to our newsletter. We send out this recap, plus some information about upcoming events in the city!)
Activities for kids
We visited some polar bears and penguins at the Museum of Nature, went shopping at Value Village, explored Chinatown, and enjoyed the cold to do some tobogganing. We learnt how to throw a Fiesta of a birthday party, build things with marshmallows and spaghetti and about the fun to be had at A Gym Tale. We also saw the horses at the RCMP stables and conducted some science experiments.
The Ottawa Public Library also told us all about the Spring break programs.
We had lots of great recipes this month for food kids love, like oatmeal and waffles and cupcakes! We also had a great post on how to cook (and keep safe) with kids in the kitchen.
We had more crafts than usual this month (because it was too gross to go outside I imagine ;))
Out of town ideas
This one isn't too far out of town, just near Montebello. Parc Omega is open year round and a great place to visit in the winter!
