What To Do In Edmonton This Weekend With Kids | May 1 - 3, 2015

Hello from sunny Florida.  (Though yesterday it was warmer in Edmonton than here in Orlando.) I’m on a much-needed vacay but thought I’d post a few ideas of things to do with your family this weekend.

Here’s what’s happening:

Our favourite moms' group, Momstown, is holding a community celebration and transforming the ice rink at West Edmonton Mall on Sunday. Go enjoy kid-sized houses, a royal tea party, get flipbooks or photobooth pictures (in support of LLSC), make a fun craft, let your kids drive a car and more.

May is biology month at the Telus World of Science. This weekend visit the The Body Fantastic Gallery to learn about organ function and see a dissection.

The Shrine Circus is in town from April 30 – May 3. Proceeds from the event actually goes to help Al Shamal Shriners local projects.

Be a tourist in your own city with Jane’s Walks this weekend. This event features a number of walk and talks about Edmonton’s communities. Walks focus on different topics including art, history, architecture, urban design and development. If you can’t make a scheduled walk, check out the smartphone self-guided tour of Churchill Square. You’ll be surprised what you learn about Edmonton.

If you’re enjoying being outside and want to teach your kids about taking care of their community, why not take part in the Mill Creek Clean Up.

On the theme of community beautifying, check out the micro-grant that Make Something Edmonton is offering for individuals, families and groups who want to do a mini-make over of a space in their community. I’ve pinned a bunch of ideas so think about what you could do in your neighbourhood and apply by May 11.

If you’re looking to do some shopping, the Butterdome Spring Craft Sale is happening May 1 – 3.  There will be lots of Mother Day gift ideas there – for you or your mom.

Need baby clothes, toys or gear for summer? Check out the three I’ve Outgrown It Sales happening this weekend. Details are on this City and Baby post.

Let the outdoor market season begin! Callingwood’s Farmers’ Market opens on May 3. On opening day they’ll have live music, a petting zoo, bouncy castle, face painting and balloon twisting.  City Market Downtown doesn’t open for another two weeks, but we’re looking forward to having them back on 104 Street for the season.
