From someone in our community, with a suggestion on what to do while having to spend more time at home:
Over the next few weeks, many of us will be increasing our time spent at home. If you have young children, it can be hard to find things to do all day, for 21 days, and not get bored. So I was thinking of a way for our community to still get outside and do something fun, [while still practicing social distancing]. St. Patrick’s Day is here and I thought it’d be fun to have a community-wide Shamrock Hunt.
All you have to do is put a Shamrock in your window on March 17th. That’s it! Colour it, paint it, cut it out, print it on a printer, whatever. Then we go outside, walk around and see how many shamrocks we can find. It’s easy. No human contact. Get fresh air. No need to go to a store, just put a shamrock in your window.
An evening of caring, sharing, and singing together.
Join Séan McCann, founder of Great Big Sea for a special family friendly evening of great music, inspiring stories, and a sing-along of your favourite Christmas classics – in support of mental healthcare at Queensway Carleton Hospital.
