Sorry chicks, technical difficulty! This post was supposed to go up yesterday so Fab Friday just because Sassy Saturday! Enjoy Head Chick’s Amanda’s post!
As most of you know I am not a Mama Chick but I do have two little peeps in Ottawa that make me think a lot about all the ups and downs of what it must be like to be a Mama Chick as well as the trials of how to keep busy, keep kids engaged and keep them active.
I am super close to my cousin and her two kiddies Jalen and Tyra – who is also my god daughter.
To celebrate they had a cooking extravaganza party where the kiddies were taught how to make healthy snacks, cut fruit and make dough from scratch. Tyra is a chef in the making for sure and loves the kitchen so this was a perfect day for her.
We then went on to visit Saunders Farm in Ottawa – if you live there and have never been I must reco that you check it out next year. This place was like a kiddie wonderland in a farm setting. It was jammed with cool mazes, haunted houses, hay rides, bouncy pillows (like a castle sans walls lol) and so much more!
The thing I loved about this weekend besides spending time with loved ones is the ease there was in keeping the kids engaged and having them learn about healthy treats without a fight and getting them moving without it feeling like exercise. My cousin is amazing at always making kid time a priority and having her two little ones constantly trying new activities, visiting new sites and always learning new things.
So now back in Toronto it got me thinking if I did decide to have kids one day (big GULP) what fun things would I do here to keep the same lessons in place and have my kids feel excited about their health?
Make this weekend fabulous!
