Bitter cold out there, right? I’m so happy we have plenty of options to save our little ones from cabin fever here in Toronto. From local kids playspaces like Gymboree, Kidville, and Sprouts Kids to kid friendly cafes like Oaks ‘n Acorns, Smock Cafe and opening soon…Play Cafe in Toronto Midtown! Finally! This neighbourhood has been long overdue for a place to just hang with the kids while we sip our coffee’s and enjoy eating with two hands. Watch for my news on Play Cafe’s opening activities.
But while it may be cold, there is still plenty to do in Toronto. From celebrating winter in all its glory at a Winter Carnival to creating fun arts with our own two hands, there’s something for everyone.
