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.
To the Little Owl Children’s Fair on November 23 from 10 am–5 pm at Victoria West Community Centre
Why? Because it’s a great opportunity to do some Christmas shopping and pick up gifts that are unique, homemade, and thoughtful. Some of the handmade items for babes, kids and youth include wooden toys, warm knits, superhero capes, dress-up masks, clothes and more.
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? This practical eBook really speaks to kids in a way only a peer can. It’s honest, heartfelt and provides practical tools for coping with bullying. We love its central theme about the power of positivity.
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.
Support the Victoria Youth Empowerment Society by eating lunch at the 17th Annual Souper Bowls of Hope on November 3 from 11 am–1:30 pm
Why? Local media personalities, politicians and business leaders will be rolling up their sleeves and ladelling up some gourmet soups—helping a good cause never tasted so good! You’ll even recieve a unique, hand-crafted ‘Souper Bowl’ to take home.
