Joining friends and family to play educational and fun board games is a wonderful way to connect while stimulating thinking skills of all players, despite their age. Playing games develop a variety of cognitive, social, and physical skills.  

Learning about Wendat and Jesuits at Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons

Wendat and Jesuits at Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons
This summer when we visited Wendake in Quebec, we learned about the Huron Wendat people and how their lifestyle and lives changed after making contact with the French Jesuits in the 1600s. Our curiosity led us to Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons in Ontario.

Learn new skills with Klutz Kits

klutz kits
We love Klutz Kits because each kit comes with everything we need to get started on the art or craft right away! My children have explored a variety of Klutz kits over the years and they like the simple to understand instructions with step-by-step illustrations and pictures. Kids will be able to manage most of the activities independently.

DK books on Flora and Fauna

We enjoy books that encourage the love for flora and fauna, as it helps us slow down and be thankful for every creation that is around us. DK books, An Anthology of Intriguing Animals and Smithsonian Flora, would make thoughtful gifts, as it would be appreciated all year round.

Museum of Illusions

Museum of Illusions
We were thrilled to explore Toronto's newest attraction, Museum of Illusions, located at 132 Front Street East close to St. Lawrence Market. Museum of Illusions first opened in Zagreb, Croatia in 2015, and now they have franchises in cities such as New York, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, and Berlin. It was mesmerizing to experience the trickery of our senses at the different displays and interactive spaces.

Win Tickets to Cirque du Soleil Corteo

Cirque du Soleil Corteo
We loved watching Cirque du Soleil Volta last year when it came to Toronto. The experience of watching the skillful acrobatic performances, dances, movements, music, and narrative was something that made it a memorable experience. We are excited that this year Cirque du Soleil will be performing their show Corteo in Toronto at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena (formerly the Air Canada Centre) from December 12 - 16, 2018 for a limited run of eight performances.

Our children first started playing Beyblades about six years ago. Beyblades are a fun toy for anyone (recommended age is over eight). We enjoy watching the tops of the Beyblades competing with each other as we zip the launcher, and predict whose Beyblade will spin the longest. During the past few weeks, we have been having fun with the new Beyblade Burst Evolution toys from Hasbro.
