Candy Table for Lovable Littles Uptown Market Mixer

Last week we had the pleasure of doing a candy table for a business mixer put on by the lovely ladies of Lovable Littles Uptown Market. We were SO excited when they said they were doing a Great Gatsby themed event so we brought out all the gold sparkles and feathers we could find! Looking to add some fun to your next event? We would love to help you set up a candy table! Please email info @ boxsocialep.com to get more information and a quote.

April’s Tot Time at Mill Woods Town Centre

Frustrated with your baby crying and pointing at things while you sit there wondering what they are trying to say? Come to Tot Time on April 7th from 10 am – Noon and see why teaching your child sign language at an early age can benefit both you and your child!

Tiny Hands, Big Words provides children and their families with a communicating tool before children begin to speak. Families  will learn American sign language using the Baby Signing Time curriculum. Helping infants and toddlers communicate will reduce frustration and boost children’s confidence. You can unlock your child’s mind and build a stronger bond by learning a few simple signs.
At tot time you will learn a few signs through songs, games and stories. There will also be information on the benefits of signing with young children.

Wee Piggies and Paws will also be there with a fun craft for your child to do! Wee Piggies specializes in creating one-of-a-kind keepsakes of your children’s hands/feet into custom shadow boxes, life statues, and ornaments.

March Kids Play at Kingsway Mall

One of my absolute favourite activities we did last year at Kids Play was Boxes, Blocks, and Buildings with PAW and they are coming back on March 25th! Students from the University of Alberta will be building, creating, and of course playing from 9-11am upstairs by GAP. Last year we made a huge cardboard box fort in the mall. This is one that you won’t want to miss out on!

What is PAW? The Play Around The World (PAW) program selects and prepares U of A students for a 3 month placement in either Asia (Cambodia or Thailand) or Canada (Fort Providence, Northwest Territories). Students from diverse educational backgrounds from learning communities which are structured to provide a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to learning, leadership, and programming. PAW offers students an opportunity to develop a sense of global awareness and citizenry, through collaboration with various schools, orphanages, community based organizations and government agencies to deliver, play, recreation, physical activity and sport to children and youth of all abilities. Play is viewed as a vehicle to enliven the human spirit and to promote optimal development. Students broaden their world view as they live, learn, and work in a culture different from their own.

Hot Chocolate Bar

Having a Hot Chocolate Bar is a fun spin on a traditional candy table. The kids spend the afternoon tobogganing so coming in from the cold and being able to have hot chocolate with marshmallows, peanut butter chips, M&M’s and more was SO fun! The birthday girl is a true princess so of course we had to go SUPER girly. She has a fun, funky side as well so we threw in a pop of black to show her “punk/rockstar” side too. We love being able to completely customize the decorations to the individual we are decorating for!
