Since there are no long weekends to celebrate this month, we have some suggestions to get you through the post-Halloween trauma that is November. Here’s our guide to making the most of it.
See Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games on Saturday November 8 at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts
Why? Because the kids will love the absolute zaniness of this live, music-filled performance. Expect to be up out of your seat, dancing along with Toopy and Binoo as they try to find the best game ever. (From our Partner)
The flu shot
Why? Because it’s not just about you…if you get sick, you’ll probably make other people sick. You don’t want to be that person, do you?
In the leaves with the kids
Why? It’s fun, you can only do it once a year and active play helps kids learn.
The Survival Guide to Bullying: Written by a Kid, for a Kid, by Aija Mayrock

Why? Because November is financial literacy month in Canada and your kids have a lot to learn.
Jonty: The Dinosaur Who Could Not Go to Sleep
Why? We like the just-for-them touches in this interactive bedtime storybook, like the beginner’s level lettering and simple navigation—perfect for kids just learning to read. The goal of the game is to help Jonty the dinosaur get to sleep…we keep hoping the kids will pick up some pointers.
Why? Because speeding can lower your gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds and by 5% around town. It’s also safer.
A moustache cake for Movember
Why? Because everybody loves moustaches these days and baking a funny cake is a great activity to do with the kids.
Patients at CAMH (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health) have a happy holiday season by sending them a unique gift like a pair of slippers or an art therapy class through the Gifts of Light program
