6 Fun Day-Off-School Activities For Canada Kids

Top Home Businesses In Europe

Many elementary schools in Toronto seem to have more random days off than in years past. Sometimes these days can catch parents off guard. What to do when your kids are going to be home all day in the middle of the week? Well …  if you didn’t schedule any appointments with your Burlington pediatrician or dentist for a check-up, then try one of these fun ideas to keep your kids active and healthy on their days off.

1. Help them make a treasure hunt, indoors our out, depending on the weather. Once they’re done they can invite friends over to find the treasure (the treasure can be almost anything, since the real prize is following the clues!). When the hunt is over, serve a small picnic for the hungry hunters.

2. Hold an art exhibit. Get out the paints and modeling clay and then let your kids spend the morning creating works of art to display.

3. Healthy kids are active kids, so help them plan a kid Olympics! Give them the freedom to choose how to judge and award medals, then sit back and watch them wear themselves out!

4. Have a family history day. Encourage your kids to write in their journals and ask them to share some favorite family stories that you can record in their own words. If you have stories of your ancestors, this is a good time to share them with your kids.

5. Go visit a local Canada, USA, or Europe museum, historical site, petting zoo, or aquarium. Remember, this is a day to do something with your kids that you’ve always been putting off, so do it!

6. Visit a resident of a local Toronto convalescent home. Some elderly men and women rarely get visitors. Your kids will feel good about brightening someone’s day. They could bring them flowers or an original piece of art. (See activity number 2.)

I love the idea that I’m helping Canadian families raise healthy, happy kids.  Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Europe concern me.  That’s one reason I’m the owner of a Burlington area home business that promotes and distributes “Healthy” Chocolate – Chocolate that’s actually good for kids (and adults).  Rich in anti-oxidants, nutrition and great taste.

If you are interested in learning more about “Healthy” Chocolate, visit my web site at www.ChocolateAppeal.com.

If you are interested in a “Healthy” Home Business that will help provide the little (or a lot of) extra’s without financial pressure, on your time, anytime … call me at (905) 336-0018.

Three Cheers For The Family Dog In Europe

All good parents want their children to be safe and healthy. Those of us in the Burlington area spend a good chunk of income on keeping kids healthy.  Between visits to Ontario pediatricians for … routine children checkups; buying vitamins & medicines; making sure they get enough exercise and (their favorite) replacing candy snacks  with “healthy” chocolate.

But here is something that Ontario and other Canadian parents may not even have thought of  ….  having man’s (kid’s?) best friend in the home. (more…)

Did you know ...

Children’s Heart Disease RiskA growing number of Ontario, Canadian kids (& children worldwide)  are developing high cholesterol, high triglycerides and type 2 diabetes which are all risk factors for heart disease.  The trend is growing, as seen by many family physicians.  Just look at some of the numerous articles offering information on this growing trend (i.e. Children and Heart disease) .  According to AHA (The American Heart Association) there is credible evidence that cholesterol buildup in arteries begins in childhood. (i.e. AHA Scientific Statement) (more…)
