Looking for ways to entertain the kids now that school’s out for summer (sing it!), here are three wonderful things to do with the littlest of kids from theatre to baseball to riding the mini-rails!
The Toronto Fringe Festival’s Kidsfest
July 4-15, 2018
As part of the Toronto’s Fringe Festival, Kidsfest offers 8 shows for mini-fringers ages 3-12 at the George Ignatieff Theatre. The fest also has free activities and bouncy castles for the super young play lovers. Tix are only $5 for plays with whimsical and wacky names like Space Chums! Sharnoozle! and TRUNK!
Junior Jays Sundays & Weekends
Who’s on first? The littles will be able to answer that and more after heading to the Jr. Jays program, which makes catching a Blue Jays game extra fun for pint sized fans. During Sunday home games, kids 14 and under can visit the Jr. Jays Zones on the 100, 200 and 500 levels to take part in many fun activities that will keep them entertained up until the eighth inning! Even better, your budding sports announcer could be picked to be the Jr. Jays Announcer for the bottom half of an inning.
Toronto Railway Museum minature train
All aboard train lovers! Kids can immerse themselves in train lore and ride the narrow rails at the Toronto Railway Historical Association. Experience what it’s like to be a real train engineer in the train simulator, which lets kids use the brakes and blow the horn then take a ride on the miniature railway that circles the park in front of the museum.
