Best ideas to entertain kids during spring break (Part 1)

Spring break has started! Now all parents think of how to make their children spend time unresisting and useful during this spring break.

Here are several of the best ideas on how parents can entertain their kids this week:

1. Manitoba Legislature

Manitoba Legislature opens its doors for all children who are interested in visiting this institution. Children will be able to see how the provincial government works and perhaps decide on their future profession. The main idea is that children will be able to see that the government is not an abstract concept. They will be able to understand that they can also become part of the system when they grow up.

Free excursions will be held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 to 14. The event is organized for children aged 6 to 12.

2. Festival of Fools at The Forks

The Festival of Fools is back. This week children will be able to laugh, to see circus acts, and to plunge into the atmosphere of magic. The festival is organized by the Winnipeg International Children's Festival. All kids visit Festival of Fools for free.

3. Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Canadian Museum for Human Rights also has its own festival for kids. They will see circus acts, hoop dancing, singing, magic, comedy, jigging, hip hop and bluegrass music.

Children under 12 can visit the museum for free. The festival will take place from March 25 to March 28.

4. Manitoba Museum

Manitoba Museum offers all kids to go on a scavenger hunt for rocks, paper, and fossils to win a prize pack. The hunt is at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. every day this week. All additional information can be found online.

But some people do not have the ability to ride a bicycle and enjoy the activity in full, so a camp in Winnipeg is aiming to give everyone a chance to learn how to ride a bike. The camp, based out of the United States, has been taking place in the city for four years. Winnipeg’s...

Mental health is very important, no doubt. Reports of mental health concerns are very high, with 65 percent of respondents in Canada reporting they had been diagnosed with a mental illness during their lifetime.

Biking is good for your physical health and mental state. Many Winnipeggers enjoy biking as family time, for sport and soul recreation, but some take it further, even set records!

Speed Limit
Fellow Winnipeggers please don’t text and drive, follow the speed limits, the limits there for a good reason, keep our roads safe and easy to drive. Every driver should pay attention to the traffic lights and the situation on the road. Winnipeg drivers could one day be forced to slow down on all residential streets. After a month of presentations and debates at city hall, the council is directing city officials to do an analysis of a city-wide speed limit...
Fire
A residential fire is always a scary and dangerous thing, people might get hurt or killed, especially children and elderly citizens since they are not able to react fast and evacuate the building by themselves. On the morning of July 18th, 2019, the WFPS responded to reports of a fire in a three-storey apartment complex in the 600 block of Simcoe Street. The building's residents self-evacuated prior to the arrival of crews. One individual was assessed on t...

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed City of Winnipeg Insect Control Branch and Heliport Relocation Project, located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The recent rain and heat means the city has gone from one extreme to the other, and we should be expecting an increase in the flying pests soon. Winnipeggers can contribute to curbing the mosquito menace – while the...
