As every mom knows, the closer you get to the end of your mat leave, the more creative you have to be with entertaining your little one as they get more mobile and more interactive. Events like the Mad Hatter`s Tea Party are a great family event because there is lots of green space outdoors (to practice walking) and craft activities for kids of all ages. Even though my little guy is still not at the stage to make anything, he does enjoy the different textures and colours of paper so these are criteria enough for me to check out the event.
In addition to craft activities, this event will also include games, treats (hopefully a bake sale!) and photo opportunities.
The Mad Hatters Tea Party will be held Saturday, October 18th from 10am-3pm at the Dunbarton-Fairport United Church in Pickering.
Cost: Entry to the event is $5 per person. All proceeds go towards providing respite for families with children on the Autism Spectrum.
