It was a beautiful day on Wednesday, June 10th, as many members of the community along with their young children, gathered at Radville Laurier Regional Park to enjoy a selection of educational games provided by the Main Street Family Resources Van.
Kids, along with their parents explored shapes and colors at a number of different stations set up near the gazebo. After signing in, kids could play in the ball pit, or try their luck at the beanbag toss.
There was also a fish pond where children had to try and catch the fish but not the rubber ducks. There was a basketball game, several tables with different types of puzzles and an egg and spoon race where children were encouraged to follow the path without dropping their plastic egg.
One of the most popular attractions for the children was the small bouncy house. There was a line up all afternoon as each child waited for their turn.
The event was geared for children from age 0 to age 5 and it was very well attended. Parents were required to stay with their children but no one seemed to mind as they were having as much fun with the toys as the kids were. It was designed to encourage bonding between parents and children in a fun learning based environment.
This was an excellent program that came to visit the community and was very well received. Everyone had a good time and will look forward to any other of these…
