I’m always on the hunt for rainy day activities in Vancouver and so on Saturday we went with friends to visit the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park. The conservatory serves as a bird sanctuary for over 100 species of birds and various tropical plants. It is a relatively small, glassed in dome with a circular path which is stroller accessible. The kids enjoyed the scavenger hunt provided by the conservatory and were able to find all the items in a few rounds.
Ben is fully recovered from his illness. Thank God! He was actually on vacation last week and the poor man spent it in bed. Fortunately he has another week off and so we are taking full advantage of daddy being home with fun day trips. Today we visited Lighthouse Park; a personal favourite.
Did you know homemade pinwheels are super easy to make? Light-weight paper such as magazine pages works best for really little kids who are still working on their blowing skills. Medium weight paper (i.e. drawing paper) is great for older kids who can also create designs on their pinwheel with crayons and markers.
