Good Form: The Kamloops Disc Golf Experience

“Frisbee?”  Nope.  This is different.  The designs might be just as interesting as you might see on a frisbee, but these are discs.  Golfing discs, to be precise (and I’m probably not, it’s been a while).  A good golfer carries a bunch of clubs and wields them well.  A good disc golfer does the same, only he doesn’t get a cart, nor a rolling bag. They are carried.  And some of ’em are heavy!

The Viking Longboat: Kidz in the Kitchen

It’s an age-old classic… “ants on a log

You cut up a celery stick to munching size and fill the scoop with peanut butter (or cheese whiz).

Then, you top it with raisins.

Little Kites – Look What Mommy Made: Crafting With (For) Kids

And then sometimes the intentions are great.. but then the actual effort is all on your shoulders.  It takes a little more hands-on work than you plan and the kids don’t actually get to do very much of the crafting.  But, that’s okay, too…

Sarah and I got our kids together to create some little kites for the kids.  We visited and crafted, the kids waited patiently for each little step that they could do and then enjoyed the final result, immensely.

We started out by creating our kite string-bobbin.  We got the kids to wrap sewing thread around an old hair roller (sweet crafty junk re-use!!).

“Anything” Muffins: Kidz In The Kitchen

Muffins are beautiful.  Muffins are fine!  I like muffins; I could eat them all the time…. oh, wait.  That’s sandwiches.

Anyhow, muffins are a great treat and a great snack and, if you make ’em right, a great meal!

We have a favourite muffin recipe that is a quick and easy base for any additions.  That means that it makes a great “fill-in-the-blank” muffin!  Blueberry?  Yes.  Ham and cheese?  Yes.  Apricot?  Yes.  Chocolate Chip?  Yes.  Savoury Cheese?  Yes.  Apples and Cinnamon?  Yes.

We’ve tried all of those and they are always a fast and fabulous muffin!

Sheet Watercolour (Bizarre Bazaar): Crafting with Kids

Every Thursday, the Kamloops Arts Council and the City of Kamloops pair up to bring “The Bizarre Bazaar” to Kamloops residents.  It’s an eclectic gathering of all kinds of artists from our community, and a great occasion to get out with the family and sample a variety of the arts.  From 12 to 7pm, you can go to the Old Courthouse on Seymour Street (turn into the parking lot off 3rd Ave and drive through the lot to the back, to park) and experience all kinds of family fun!

You can tour the gallery inside the Courthouse!

You can check out the children’s play “King Arthur: Lost in Time” out on the front lawn at 1pm!
