Here at Family Futures, we aim to empower and strengthen families for a better future. With COVID-19 keeping us indoors, it’s important for families to learn how to spend quality time with each other which is why this session we are offering “At Home Family Fun” projects to do in the comfort of your own home! Whether you have younger children or older children (or both!) We have projects for ages ranging from 2–14. When you register, you are signing up to receive an email on the specified “event” date which will have instructions for the projects and activities associated with the theme you’ve selected. There will be themes that focus on exploring nature, learning cooking skills, and doing at-home art projects. It’s bound to be fun for the whole family; sign up now to see for yourself!
Whip out your whisk and put on your chef’s hat! It’s time for some fun family cooking. Kids will get a chance to design their own menu and take orders. Follow our easy dinner and dessert recipes to have a fun night of cooking and baking as a family!
Is your family ready to transform cardboard into a space adventure, a fairy tale castle or the ultimate race car? All you need is cardboard, tape, crayons, the Cardboard Creations DIY plans and a lot of imagination.
Families will get a chance to create an artful “masterpiece” and play fun games that focus on creativity, teamwork and mindfulness. So put on your paint shirts, turn on your imagination and jump into the world of art in its many forms!
Family Game Night! This night will be crazy full of games! Bring out some family board games that you have at home. Then, follow along with our DIY plan to explore a variety of different games such as Pictionary and making a memory game! Lots of laughs and some classic family time together are sure to ensue.
Connecting with our communities is not an easy task, especially right now. We want to challenge families to gather rocks, large and small to decorate and place around their neighbourhood as a way to bring cheer and a sense of bonding. While you’re out, keep a lookout as we’ll provide families with scavenger hunts specific to select neighbourhoods!
It’s time to turn your family home into your own little science lab. Work together with your kids to explore cool science experiments, discover the science behind some household items and test your family’s creative problem-solving skills and scientific methods to solve a family science challenge.
Winter is upon us and it’s time to celebrate the miracle of snow, seasons and our beautiful climate! Families will receive family-friendly winter-themed activities to play inside AND outside this winter! Along with some fun winter treat recipes, you and your family are bound to be warm this winter whether it’s due to love, laughter or long-johns!
