Crafts, Painting, Sports and Parachute Play at momstown Family Fun Day Event 2013

Victoria moms, dads, grandparents, babies and kids enjoyed the morning of BC's first Family Day with our momstown Victoria community! Our momstown Family Fun Day event began at 10 a.m with a Family Walk across the Selkirk Trestle bridge, followed by free activities with local sponsors at the Victoria West Community Association until noon. Families enjoyed mural painting, Valentine's Day crafts, kindergym, Sportball, snacks, prize draw and parachute play!

Investors Group consultants, Martin Newham and Christina Gilbert, were the title sponsors of our free community event, and also provided a Valentine's Day craft, helium balloons, and awesome prize draw for 3 family passes to Saanich Parks and Recreation facilities!

Victoria West Community Association provided the kindergym equipment, playmat, toys and books for babies and toddlers. We loved seeing the families reading and playing together!

Coach Lee Richardson of Sportball Victoria provided junior and multi-sport activities for the kids and toddlers and was running a full class by the end of the event! He also gave away a Sportball t-shirt and jersey in our prize draw as well as a Sportball birthday party. 

Thank you to 4Cats Arts Studio in Oak Bay for donating the paint supplies for our mural painting activity! They also provided a free Artist of the Month Gift Certificate for our prize draw, valued at over $150! Curator Ally gave us some great tips for colour blocking the canvas, and the kids did a wonderful job of adding the artwork. 


We just LOVE giving away stuff! Here are just a couple of our lucky winners...


And it wouldn't be a momstown event unless we pulled out the big parachute! We did parachute songs, games, and created a giant "mushroom" to sit under!


We had so much fun! Thank you again for sharing part of your Family Day with our momstown family, and thank you to all of our local sponsors for their generous support!
