Winter Camp Week 2 – Day 2: New Year’s Eve PARRRRRR-TAY!

Today we had a parrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-tay celebrating the New Year!  Our campers were great event planners, and helped decorate the room.  We also got to decorate party hats, make hula skirts, twisted balloon animals, and created spin art fireworks with glitter! We also made noise makers to take home, so they can ring in the new year with you!! 🙂

Stay tuned for more fun activities, and see you again next year! 🙂 Have a safe and happy New Year!

Kind-hearted Kids Honoured at the Fourth Annual “Kids Helping Kids” Celebration!

Toddlers and teens excitedly celebrate at a party in Calaway Park organized by the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. More than 300 kids helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help injured children in their community! Together they will be celebrating this incredible achievement with games, prizes, and awards.

The foundation will announce “The Hero Award,” which is a “heartwarming distinction granted to a Kids Helping Kids participant who exemplifies a sense of community.” At the Zimmer Children’s Museum we love to see our toddlers, teens, and even parents involved in contributing to their community.  If your child, or someone you know has inspired those around him/her in their community, let us know and we can feature them in our Act of Kid-ness blog!
