Active Family Contest Week 1: Sponsored By 2Fish Kids

July is the kick off to our Active Family Contest. This week is sponsored by 2fish kids

Hot Summer Fix: Staying Active and Refreshed at the Water Park and Pool

Taking children to wading pools and water parks, is the next best thing to visiting any body of water that Mother Nature has gifted us with. In our province, people are most fortunate to have access to the ocean but as fascinating as that is, water parks are often the least intimidating option for toddlers.

As natural curiosity-seekers, toddlers are intrigued about many things around them, yet the sea - with its vast amount of moving water - can be daunting for them. Remember when your little one found transitioning to the big tub a tad intimidating. All the more reason why wading pools and water parks can be just what you need to have a fun wet summer with your toddler.

Special Thanks to Our Sponsor
2fish kids is a dynamic partnership between Jennifer, a certified teacher, industrial designer and mother of four, and Nathalie, an engineer, mathematician and mother of three.

The co-creators created a truly beneficial product that engages and educates children. “My Week” is a magnetic, dry-erase calendar teaching the days of the week. The 58 magnets introduce seasons, weather, activities and holidays. Their idea came organically because of the busy weekly schedules of their own children. Through their invention, these mom-preneurs created something tangible that helps kids visualize the concept of time while gaining confidence and independence, knowing what lies ahead.
