Why Not #TrySomethingFresh with Your Family This Summer! #Ontario {#GIVEAWAY}

During the summer months, many families are on the hunt for fun ideas to experience together. Thanks to ARM & HAMMER™, you can learn of some fresh, new ideas for you and your family. If you live in Ontario, some fun opportunities include:

Ontario Place – A fun and entertaining hybrid attraction, Ontario Place carnival classics like Bumper Boats and mini golf as well as thrill rides an eco-learning center, and an IMAX theatre featuring Nature documentaries, fantastic fun for the entire family.

Algonquin Park
Take a family canoe trip immersed in classic Canadian scenery and a never ending expanse of water at Ontario’s Algonquin Park. For extra adventure, consider an overnight canoe camping adventure with the family.

Learn to Camp (at participating National Parks)
Learn to camp with the whole family this summer at a guided overnight camping session, or a community teaching session to learn how you and your family can camp safely. There is no equipment necessary and qualified, trained experts will teach you through hands on activities the safest and most fun ways to camp with your friends and family this year.

Spring on the Farm
Visit Forts Family Farm this summer. Kids will get an up close look at baby animals and also enjoy arts and crafts, games and live demonstrations. Check it out ahead of time to make sure you don’t miss the interactive animal feeding sessions.

Black Creek Pioneer Village
A classic pioneer village, Black Creek offers a whole host of family friendly including demonstrations of old-time skills and chores and some hands on activities for kids. Kids will get a chance to re-create pioneer life in period dress and a fun tip for parents – there’s a micobrewery on site!

During the summer months, I let go of the idea that the floors need to be spic and span because the children are running in and out of the house with grass, mud, sand and sometimes even water all over them! Summer time is a time for great fun, but it also means a lot of extra laundry. For children, fun means mess, or at least in my house it does!
