Kids First Day 2015 is Happening April 17 #ldnont

Kids First Day is happening again on April 17th in London, ON! Kids First Day

We LOVED Kids First Day last year and I know my kids are excited about this year! Last year I sat down with the list of places and I planned our route. We filled our day with fun activities and experiences in London in a whole new way. I’m always surprised at how much is actually available for the kids to do and some of the stuff is family oriented as well.

If you are a regular attendee then the participant list is pretty familiar but they have added some new partners this year, such as Scouts Canada – London Area, Ska-Nah-Doht Village & Museum and PC Cooking School at Oxford/Gammage. I will have to make sure I put the PC Cooking School on our list for this year as my two older kids have recently expressed an interest in learning to cook.

Kids First Day is a great opportunity for you and your kids to explore London and learn about some businesses in London that are there to invest in your children. This year there are more than 50 Locations in an around London that are participating, with free or low-cost activities. From arts and crafts, to dancing, swimming, bowling, cooking, scavenger hunts and magic shows… there is a Kids First Day activity for every child.

Remember to pick up your Kids First Day Passport at your first stop and get it signed at each activity that you attend. Submit your passport after your third activity for a chance to win a fabulous prize! There will also be a SECOND chance to win if you complete the online survey, here, after the event.

Also, be sure to join the Facebook Event for important Kids First Day updates.

Here is a full listing of the venues and a list of all the prizes. If you go straight to the website you can view the partners by geographical area or on a map so you can better plan your day.

Have you ever participated in Kids First Day here in London? And if you don’t live in London, does your city do anything similar for the kids? I’d love to hear your experiences.

    This looks like so much fun!! I have never heard of Brampton doing something like this though. London is our pit stop whenever we go to visit family in Chatham. We usually go to the Children’s Museum. There are lots of great kid friendly places though in London! We will have to explore next time we are there.

    • Tabitha Pye

      SO many great places for families here! You really should check them out next time you’re in town.

  • Heather Lynne

    That is such a great idea! I don’t think we have anything like that around here, but I would love to participate if there were! Sounds like a blast!

    • Tabitha Pye

      More cities should get on board with this kind of stuff! I discovered so much for us to do as a family because of this! Plus we get to visit places we wouldn’t normally visit because of the cost, being a large family we don’t go a lot of places because of the cost. We scope out free stuff all the time 😉

    this sounds like such a neat event for families! I wish that our city had something like it~

    • Tabitha Pye

      It would be amazing if all cities did this!

  • I have lived in London most my life and never heard of this. Having four kids I wish I knew sooner, going to check it out now. Hopefully we can make it to some places

    • Tabitha Pye

      It’s sooo much fun Kim! You really should check it out. I’m not sure how long they’ve been doing this, but Christy has been going for years with her girls!

  • Amanda

    That sounds like a fun event and something that I wish Winnipeg had.

    • Tabitha Pye

      It is A LOT of fun! Way better than spending the day at home with the kids fighting on a PD Day :)
