We’re not sure what St. Patrick would say about sharing March with National Nutrition Month, but we’ve got some tips on how to make the most out of March.
Promote healthy eating in your home and school for Nutrition Month
Why? Because it’s our kids’ lives that are at stake. Share the information with friends and teachers and try out some new recipes at home.
See The Neverending Story at Young People’s Theatre running until March 17
Why? Because the classic kids’ film has been transformed into a fabulous stage production. Relive the magical tale as Bastian, a bullied boy, finds solace in a mysterious book and soon realizes he plays a key role in an epic journey.
Something from Shopcastr.com
Why? Because Shopcastr makes it simple for you to window shop online at your favourite local spots then discover what your city has in store. It’s brand new and it’s very cool.
Your favourite music and dance to it with your kids
Why? It can’t be all kids’ music all the time. Start influencing their musical tastes’it will help with future family car trips.
Attend the screening of Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey at the Bloor Street Hot Docs Cinema on March 18 from 11 am to 2:30 pm
Why? To support Zack’s Dream Room, an initiative that is now fundraising to create a second, child-friendly room at York Central Hospital. Tickets are $20 and include popcorn, a drink, crafts, face painting, a play area for kids, a swag bag and more.
Tim O’Toole and the Wee Folk by Gerald McDermott
Why? Because it’s great to be Irish’even just for a day.
Why? Because it’s educational and promotes fun physical activity (and we love it when the two collide).
Why? Because when you need to deal with one of life’s little emergencies (or something bigger), Ayoudo can connect you to trusted people in your community who can help.
On March 17, channel your inner Kermit’wear green, eat green, make green crafts‘get the picture?
Why? Because we thought it would be more fun to include this tip than a greener ‘green’ one this month. Just remember to think about the environment while you’re being green.
Rainbow Juice Jigglers
Why? While we can’t always promise there’s a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, we can at least enjoy the rainbow itself, and these adorable jigglers make for a great treat on St. Patrick’s Day.
