Back when we lived in […]

Easter is Just Around the Corner— rain or shine, here’s what Hamilton has to offer for children this weekend!

In our household we skipped Easter for the last two years because we felt that our little guy was too young to understand what was going on.  We’ve done the same with Santa so far as well.  However, now that he’s over two he seems to be interested in the idea of the Easter bunny this year […]

Hamilton Toddler Adventures: a Friday morning at Soccerworld’s Bouncers and Balls

Disclaimer: We were provided entry into Soccerworld for this morning’s Bouncers and Balls session in exchange for our honest review. All opinions are our own. About a month ago I was searching for toddler soccer programs since our child is proving to be much more adept than we are at coordinating himself to kick, throw […]

Afternoon Adventures: Visiting the barnyard animals, raptors and bison at Mountsberg Conservation Area

We are embracing every last drop of summer over here so when I found out today was going to be a warm, sunny one I packed little one up and we headed out to Mountsberg Conservation Area in Campbellville. About a 35 minute trek from Hamilton, it’s worth the trek to Mountsberg! We spent about […]

Afternoon Adventures: The Hamilton Aviary

My toddler is into animals, birds, and bugs– big time.  Every time he sees a bird he points it out to us.  Places like the Costco parking lot, where seagulls flock by the dozens are exciting to him.  So, I imagined a visit to The Hamilton Aviary would blow his mind!  The Aviary is located in Hamilton’s Westdale […]

Afternoon Adventures: Dundas Driving Park Wading Pool and Splash Pad

Now that my little guy is on the move we are starting to get into play parks, wading pools and splash pads.  Last weekends we went with some friends to check out Dundas Driving Park.  My first mental note was that the Driving Park was an idea location because there is lots of parking available, […]

Rainy Day Activities: Make Your Own Sensory Bin

As you may have noticed in my previous post about our favourite EarlyON centre in Hamilton, my little guy is always particularly thrilled by their ever-changing sensory table.  The first one he really enjoyed was one that was filled with all kinds of colourful legumes, which he sorted through and manipulated with various sand toys […]
