  2. Personalized Prints on Sale!

    These are my favourite prints of all time for nurseries and kids’ rooms.  I love the style, colours, the personalized touch and the fact that they fit in an IKEA frame.  Did I mention that they are designed right here, in TO?  Until July 1st, buy one and get one free!  Check out PennyPeople on Etsy for more info.

  3. What to do this weekend…June 25th+26th

    Sugar Beach…as you see in the above photo, it looks fantastic.   Canada’s Sugar Beach (Jarvis & Queen’s Quay E) is a park on the water built adjacent to the Redpath Sugar Factory.  The beach allows visitors to relax, play in the sand or watch boats on the lake.  A water feature beside the beach makes cooling off fun for adults and kids.  The only problem with this beach is that you can’t swim in the lake!

    Don’t forget about Harbourfront – kids love all the sights and sounds, the bridge, sailboats…and H2O Park boasts a huge sandbox to play in.  This weekend, there is a Mathemagic show your kids might enjoy!

    Go strawberry picking – my favourite farm (Whittamore’s Farm) is open with an awesome play yard and other fun activities.  Bring this coupon for $2 off pick-your-own.

    Toronto Jazz Festival is on this weekend until July 3rd!

  8. fathersday

    Yikes!  Father’s Day is on Sunday.  If you are still looking for something special and inexpensive to make with your kids, here are some ideas:

    Simple: Have the kids wash Dad’s car.

    ————————————————

     

    Common:  Good old Martha Stewart has some great printable coupons on her site that can be given to dad.

    ————————————————-

     

    Creative: This printable file is available on Etsy for only $10 – all you have to do is print it out on nice paper, put your kids’  hand-prints on it, and frame!  Looks amazing.

     

    ————————————————-

     

    Original:  Make your own letters or buy them and return them (NO WAY!) at any art store or Pottery Barn Kids.  Dollar store might have them too!  Read more about it here.

    True: As I tell you every year, the best gift of all is to give Dad a break.  Everyone says that Father’s Day is for family time but I have a feeling that if you were to incorporate some alone time for your husband, he would be super happy.    Yes, dads need a break too.  Nice ones, that is.

     

    If  you did something fabulous for Father’s Day, send me a photo or link!  I would love to publish some of your ideas.

  11. Things to do with your toddler…

    I love this list of great ideas from Counting On Me.  The Baby is almost a toddler and some mornings, I feel like I need fresh ideas in order to keep him busy.  Come to think of it, I can keep the other two non-toddlers busy with some of these tips too.  Rain doesn’t scare me any more.
