(June 11, 2014) June is the first really warm month of the year. Well, it is supposed to, so technically our latest dough of the month in the “12 Months of Sensory Dough” series of Lemon Lime Adventures is aptly chosen as ice cream dough. So Valerie found this great recipe for edible ice cream dough on Smart School [...]
One of Calgary’s main attractions undoubtedly is the Calgary Zoo. Located mostly on St.George’s Island in the Bow River, it is the second largest zoo in Canada (after Toronto) and founded in 1929 also is among the oldest one of the country.
In June of [...]
It’s me, PlayDrMom, bouncing in again to tell you about another great place we found to play.
How could you drive by this place and NOT want to go check it out?!? We knew we wanted to go when we heard about its opening and finally got to check it out last [...]

You probably have seen the zoo bingo from The Iowa Farmer’s Wife? This is where I got my inspiration for this game. The zoo here is huge for a toddler and we never can make it around in one visit. Plus in late April it’s closed and I really wanted to try this game, so [...]
We were having a garage sale and my mother had some old fishing rods she got to sell, Nico wanted to play with them, but of course he couldn’t or he would mess them all up, so he ask to have one made. My mother got him a little branch [...]
(Jan. 22, 2012) Ok I’ve been seeing this around for a while and avoiding it, thinking Nico wouldn’t play with it anyways (he doesn’t like touching stuff like that). Most people I saw trying this had older kids, but after 2 months of seeing how much fun everyone was having, I gave [...]
