Things to do in Edmonton with Kids this Weekend
Fire Sculptures at Silver Skate
Throughout each day of each weekend, a team of fire artists will be building a sculpture to be burned at 7:45pm later that evening. Each day features a different team of artists and each day presents a different interpretation of the story, “The Land of the Golden Apples.” In the story, the fire represents renewal and the release of thoughts that make us sad or any fear or regret that chases love from our hearts. The public is invited to write down any of the aforementioned thoughts in the Storytelling Tent to be offered to the fire sculpture.
Drop in: Purposeful Play with Me
Drop in program great for parents, caregivers, and children up to 6 years of age. During this interactive play time, explore sensory, gross motor, fine motor, and literacy experiences with your children. Meet and connect with new families in your community. Snack provided.
