vancouver: kid & family friendly events

It’s time for spring break! Have you booked your kids’ camps yet? If not, we’ve got some ideas here. Or if you’re looking for other ideas for keeping busy, check out spring break event listing here. This weekend seems fun and busy too – Refresh Market in Squamish is hosting their first kids’ market and we’ll be there so be sure to come by and say hello! Plus girls of all ages (and their families too) are invited to explore aviation, and CelticFest is starting in Vancouver (with more Celtic fun coming up next week). There are plays, dance, owls and fossils, and lots of fun things to do to kick off spring break. And don’t forget to turn those clocks an hour ahead this weekend. MORE

Jump Into Spring Classes: Dedicated Email

Jump Gymnastics, a yoyomama fave, focuses on physical literacy using developmental gymnastics to teach kids the skills and help them gain the confidence they need to try new sports and lead an active life. Plus their classes compliment the other sports your little ones may be engaged in such as hockey, soccer, swimming or just playing in the park. And registration for their spring term is open now!

this mae be love

We know it’s still February but we Love Mae, and we think you may too, especially as we’re in the throes of such lovely, spring-like weather. This gorgeous kids’ line out of Australia, known for its reusable fabric wall stickers and bamboo dinnerware that appeals to kids and their design conscious parents, is now available locally. In fact you may (or should that be mae?) find yourself cadging your little one’s Love Mae decals to personalize your own things. MORE

Re-fresh for the Spring: Dedicated Email

Over the past four years, Refresh Market in Squamish has become one of the Sea to Sky Corridor’s best shopping events. This handmade and vintage market brings together vendors from Lower Mainland to Pemberton, and each market has been more popular than the last. The creators of Refresh, a duo of dynamic women and moms, have decided to expand the scope of Refresh, and what better way to do it than creating Refresh Kids? This new market, featuring over 40 carefully selected vendors, children’s boutiques and pop-up shops, will open its doors for the first time on March 1st. And we predict that, following the success of the “grown up” Refresh, their kids market has come to stay! MORE
