Best Night Ever at Monster Jam

Soulpepper Alligator Pie Review

Soulpepper’s Alligator Pie

It was the start of winter break and we were ready for an adventure in theatre, a first for my four year old daughter Lorelai! The Young Centre for the Performing Arts is nestled in the heart of Toronto’s historic Distillery District which was, to our delight, festively dressed for the Christmas season!
Disney on Ice Dream Big

Believing was just the beginning at Disney On Ice presents Dream Big!

It was a great experience to attend Disney on Ice with my 3 year old grand daughter during Christmas. The seats provided were amazing, we were so close to the front of the ice that she was able to really feel like she was a part of the show.

Family Fun at Medieval Times

I went to Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament in Toronto this weekend with my husband, 10 and 14 year old sons, my daughter and five year old granddaughter.
LEGO Minecraft

LEGO Minecraft

If you have kids between the ages of 6 and 15 chances are you are very familiar with Minecraft. I have a tween and a teen boy, and I have to admit of all the online games that get played in my house Minecraft is probably the one I spend the least amount of time worrying about.

March Break visit to the ROM

One of my favourite outings during March Break was our visit to the Royal Ontario Museum. We made our way down from Markham, me and my two boys 8 and 11 years old. The ride down on the subway from Finch station which was an adventure in itself.

Social Painting for KIDS!

I have a creative disposition, I'm drawn to anything colourful, quirky or artsy. So when I heard about the paintlounge, a new social painting café in Markham I was naturally interested. Art class and café wrapped into one - how could that not be fun?

Disney Comes to Life at the Sony Centre

It was a joy of attending opening night of Disney Live Mickey's Music Festival at the Sony Centre in Toronto!
Treasure Trove Aladdin

Disney on Ice Treasure Trove is a Treasure Indeed!

We recently attended the Toronto performance of Disney Live! Mickey’s Rockin’ Road Show at the Sony Centre. It is a really fun show for kids seven and under.
disney on ice princesses and heroes

Parent Review: Disney on Ice Princesses & Heroes

It’s a magical Disney-themed adventure for the whole family, especially for kids who are big fans of the Disney movies. I kind of knew what to expect since I have been the this show before, but I was amazed at how well this production brought to life some of my family’s favourite Disney characters.

Disney on Ice Worlds of Fantasy

On Thursday my sister and I took both my daughters Calista (5) and Adrianna (2) to the Disney on Ice Worlds of Fantasy show at the Rogers Centre. Although this was Calista's 5th time seeing Disney on Ice, this was Adrianna's first time at the show. Just the thought of going to "Toronto" as my daughter would say got them all excited.

Ultimate Dinosaurs: Visiting the Giants

I visited the Royal Ontario Museum last week, with my two boys (9 yrs & 11 yrs), to check out the new exhibit and world premiere of Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants From Gondwana, a limited time exhibit on now at the ROM. Earlier this year, I wrote about the ROM's 'must see' permanent dinosaur display...
Kids CBC Days VIP Picnic

Kids’ CBC Days ‘Picnic Party’!

What do a talking yam, a Cat in a hat, and a girl named Patty all have in common? Kids' CBC! I had the great opportunity to attend the Kids' CBC Days event happening at the CBC Broadcasting Centre in downtown Toronto. This is a 2-day event that is open to the public and is jam-packed with some fantastic activities...

Disney on Ice – Dare to Dream

This was my first time going to a Disney on Ice production and I thought it would be great fun for the kids but it turns out it was great fun for me as well. The ice stage was set-up in a way that there was not a bad seat in the house.

Disney On Ice: A Magical Family Outing

On Tuesday we took my daughter Amanda (5) and my son Ben (10) to see Disney on Ice at the Rogers Center. The kids were totally excited to go downtown to see a show, and the "coolness" of seeing an ice rink set up where we would normally go to see baseball was not lost on the kids.

Pinkalicious: A Luscious Production!

Pinkalicious is a luscious production! A few weeks ago my daughters, my husband, and I took in this musical at the Lower Ossington Theatre in Toronto. We hadn't read the book by the same name and written by Victoria Kann that the musical is based on but as soon as the lights went down and we saw the first hint of sparkly, shimmery pink, we knew we were in for a treat! What an utterly energetic cast; versatile and talented, they kept us entertained the whole way through.

Don’t Lose It!

If you're a parent you know how frustrating it can be to keep track of kids stuff. I am the proud, and often exhausted, mother of 6 and 8 year old boys, and continue to be amazed at how many things get 'lost' - toys, books, water bottles, hats, jackets, shoes, and even a pair of snow pants last winter!
