July/August 2024

Welcome to summer!

School’s out, the sun is shining, and parents everywhere are looking for things to keep the kids busy over the next two months.

In this summer edition Winnipeg Parent, you will find:

  • Great places to visit. (Make sure to put the Manitoba Museum and Royal Aviation Museum of Canada on your must-do list!)
  • Fun crafts to keep busy, and ideas for kids of all ages
  • A Screen-Free Challenge and summer fun scavenger hunt
  • Gardening with your young one
  • …and so much more

And…with summer comes open windows and doors, and little feet tracking mud and dirt throughout the house. While I love the hustle and bustle of friends running in and out, cleaning is my least favourite things to do. I don’t want to be stuck inside! To keep the house clean, check out the article on 5 and 10 minute quick-cleans so you can spend more time outdoors than inside.

These next two months are also a great time to get your child’s vision checked, fend off brain-drain with engaging reading (check out the Winnipeg Public Library’s summer reading suggestions), and have less of a routine. Winnipeg Parent can help guide you!

With that, we wish you a summer of making memories with family and friends and we will see you in September!
