Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Some ideas for the road


Is it a long drive to meet your family during Christmas time?

Here's a fun resource for car games (if you want to know what you could do with a roll of cheap alluminum foil and other original activities): I also love to have a bag of treats and things to hand to the kids as surprises during a road trip. I just visited the The Labour of Love (in Cabbagetown, Toronto, at 223 Carlton on the south side) and noticed many cool options:

The $20 tin box of 50 travel games seen above (including bingo cards) is a sure value! So are the two lovely activity books on Canadian wildlife, $12 each.

A little box with 15 string games for $15


Little Moose, a $12 puppet finger book (the first time I saw one of these was the Sleeping Kitties book in Despicable Me!)


Trivia questions in tiny boxes for all kinds of themes, selling for $10 (I bought some as hostess gifts, to be used at the end of the meal).


Little $5 glass bottles to send a message. Kids could think of a message to write in them during the trip, to keep or to give to a loved one.


And finally, there were a few $25 options in cute tin boxes such as this one.


There's much more in store, from cute options for Christmas stuffers suc as the Miracle Melting Snowman, to more serious gifts for big girls (large jewelry section!).
