Family Friendly Fun this April
It’s April and spring has well and truly sprung in Alberta. All you need now are a few fun and interesting ideas for family-friendly activities that you and your loved ones can get involved in.
As always, you are spoiled for choice in the Spruce Grove and Stoney Plain area. Here are a few of the things that we are most excited about, and that your family can get excited about too.
Adventure Time in Techland
This one is all about getting kids ready for an exciting future in tech and programming. On April 22nd, Stony Plain public library becomes a mini tech-workshop to help budding programmers and developers take their first steps into this fascinating field.
For $3 per head, kids aged between 6 and 12 can get to grips with Makey-Makes, Raspberry Pi, and Little Bits, learning a few skills that can lead to a great hobby or even more in the future. The morning session is held between 10:30am and 12 noon and is for kids aged six, seven and eight, while the afternoon session runs from 1pm to 4pm and is for children aged nine to twelve.
No School Day Fun & Minecraft Lab
Kids love a no-school day, particularly when there are fun activities available to keep them occupied. This activity, held at the public library in Spruce Grove on April 22nd, gives kids aged 7 and up the chance to indulge in some multi-player Minecraft action, as well as get to grips with some creative activities based on the revolutionary game.
This event promises to be both entertaining and engaging for kids, and is free to attend. Head down to the library between 11am and 3pm to get involved.
Community Parking Lot Sale
We’ve all got stuff kicking around our homes that we no longer use, how about getting rid of some of it and maybe picking up a bargain or two in the process? On April 30th, the Parkland Village Community Centre in Spruce Grove will be playing host to the Community Parking Lot Sale, a chance to meet and mingle with people in your local community.
Maybe you are cleaning out your house ready for a sale? This is the perfect opportunity to make some room and to give a new lease of life to some of your pre-loved items. When you’re finished don’t forget to get in touch with Roger Hawryluk for advice on how to get the best sale possible for your home. We are waiting to hear from you!
