Sorauren Summer Kids Fun: Kids Gardening

It’s the perfect way to end the Sorauren Summer Kids Fun series: planting a seed and tending to the garden. Visit the Kids Fun table at the Farmers’ Market on Labour Day, September 6 between 3 – 6:30 pm to meet summer programmer Amanda and get into some gardening.

Take a photo of your handiwork and tag @SoraurenPark on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for a chance to win a prize from Scooter Girl Toys, our Summer Kids Fun sponsor.

Thanks to everyone who participated in Sorauren Summer Kids Fun over this extraordinary summer. The program was produced by Friends of Sorauren Park and made possible by community donors, sponsor Scooter Girl Toys, and the Canada Summer Jobs grant program. Special thanks to our programmer Amanda Vo and videographer Dion Lynch, and our friends at the Sorauren Farmers Market.

Sorauren Summer Kids Fun: Arts & Crafts at the Market

Drop by the Sorauren Summer Kids Fun table at the Farmers’ Market on August 30 between 3 – 6:30 pm, to get creative with arts and crafts. Amanda, our summer program coordinator will have paper, crayons, chalk, glitter and the supplies your little ones need to express themselves. Plus, for fun, some flying disks.

It’s like Bingo, except with trees! Drop by the Sorauren Summer Kids Fun table at the Farmers’ Market on August 16, between 3 – 6:30 pm, to pick up your Tree Bingo (LEAFO) card, or you can print this PDF version. Take your card and identify the trees of Sorauren. Can you find the park’s giant and rare elm tree?
