Tips for Family Weekend Fun

[ 0 ] September 10, 2010 |

Every week on GoLocalProv I share tips on how families can make the most of their weekend – including helpful hints that make parenting easier and connecting you to great local happenings.

Kido Tip 1. Summer Skate

Dust off the ice skates and beat the late summer heat at Brown University’s hockey rink on September 12 from 3-5:45pm (minus the the hockey sticks and equipment!) This is a FREE fun family event! Bring your own skates. Rentals will not be available. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. For more information call 863-3717 or email: Brown University Meehan Auditorium, 235 Hope St, Providence.
Kido Tip 2. Celebrate Grandparents Day!

Grandparents Day is celebrated in the US, the first Sunday after Labor Day. Grandparents are special people – share them with your children in person or in memory. If the grandparents live nearby make plans to spend the afternoon together.  If an in-person visit isn’t an option have the kids send a letter, call,  Skype or email a message/photo. For grandparents no longer living, honor them by sharing/recording stories of their life with your children.
