  2. Framing Their Art


    My daughter creates 100 pieces of art a day.  Sometimes she finds some of them in the recycling bin and I pretend they fell in there by accident.  Sort of like the Captain of the Costa Concordia.  It’s hard to find a way to keep, organize and display our kids’ artwork.  I was really excited to find simple white frames with a back slot to slip-in artwork easily.  That means that you can change the display often without too much fuss!  Only $7 each at Loblaws Superstore!  A great find.

  4. Home Depot Workshops for Kids

    Mamapicks used to have a ” what to do this weekend” column and she sort of gave up because there is not enough high-quality stuff to do in the Winter with kids.  But now and then , she will let you know about great activities that she finds.  She will also let you know about places that are not great in the new “It sucks” column.

    Home Depot has monthly workshops for kids which are FREE and amazing.  We went to our first one this past Saturday morning with my 5 yr.-old son and he was the happiest kid on earth.  The two-hour workshop involves a different building project every time which is suitable for ages 4-12.  It is held at most Home Dept locations one Saturday morning a month, 10am-12pm.  This past weekend, my son used a hammer and nails to carefully construct a savings shed.  He received a kit to complete with an accompanying adult and a really cute  Home Depot kid-sized apron.  He also received a tattoo sticker which was a really big deal for some reason.  You must pre-register as many locations fill up fast.  The next workshop takes place on Feb.11th. Register online.
