vancouver: what to do, what to do?

This weekend isn’t all about Easter Bunnies and chocolate eggs. Earth Day is coming up, and there are tons of events celebrating our home planet (and more to come next week!) How about a parade down Commercial Drive, or fun earthy science at Science World? It’s also World Circus Day, and time for Vancouver Circus School’s annual spring show. Professor Banjo is in town for a family concert; the Vaisakhi parade is taking over the streets in Surrey; and the Mommies N Munchkins fair is on in Langley. There are a few great outdoor events as well, from an egg hunt in Stanley Park to cleaning the parks and streets in Surrey. To find the Easter Bunny, check our Easter event listings – we’ve added a few new ones.

get your greens

We’re always on the lookout for ways to get more dark leafy greens into our family. We’ve made kale pesto, spinach smoothies, green juice, and we’ve massaged the truth, telling our kids that greens will give them strong muscles, but we’ve never applied broccoli topically – until now.

(bath) bombs away

We are a bathing house. We all love baths, particularly the smallest member of our family. In fact, a preschool field trip to Lush, ignited an instantaneous bath bomb addiction. And, while we considered a second mortgage on the house to cover costs, we decided to take a crack at making them ourselves instead. It turns out that bath bombs are easy as pie to make, a fraction of the cost of store-bought bombs and you know exactly what’s in them. The ingredients are easy to find, and the activity is fabulous for kids of all ages.
