Toronto Treats

SavvyMom March 31, 2016

Whether you’re worried about Post-Santa Stress Disorder, or you’re looking for ways to distract them before his arrival, keep spirits bright with these fun options for family outings around town.
Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People’s production of A Year with Frog and Toad (recommended age three and up) is based on the popular children’s books and is a wonderful story about friendship, forgiveness and perseverance. Order tickets online until December 30.

The story of Christmas is told from many points of view and one of the classics is the Nativity Story. Toronto’s Church of the Holy Trinity (next to the Eaton Centre between Bay and Yonge) puts on an hour-long narrarated version with carols and music sung by an unseen choir. It’s a Toronto weekend tradition for thousands of families and is on until December 19, with a suggested donation in lieu of tickets. Reserve seats online.

Fantasy Fair puts on a kid-friendly production of Scrooge’s Magic Show at its indoor amusement centre on December 27. On December 29, Christmas-themed puppet shows will be performed throughout the building.

Geared towards kids four and up, Mackenzie House is offering 3-D paper ornament craft making from Tuesday December 28 to Sunday January 2 between noon to 4 pm. Admission is nominal and the whole family is invited to come along.

If the weather outside isn’t too frightful, bring the family outdoors to enjoy all the city has to offer. Winterfest is in full swing down at Harbourfront, and the kids will love skating at our fave outdoor rinks in the city—the Natrel Rink and KinderRink (a slower and softer rink for small children who have never skated before).
