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