Engaging the senses is one of the best ways for a child to learn and the Vancouver International Children's Festival is a feast of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell! We used our festival activity pass to visit the three-year-old friendly tents. Levi was in his element making a new puppet friend in the Sock It To Me Tent. He has a wild imagination and so Mr. Puppet will now join the ranks of Jesus, Chickadee and Owl in the forever friend group. 

Ben is on holiday and we're making it a raw food week using the Eat Well, Eat Raw book. Usually our vacay's tends to go hand-in-hand with gorging. But really, isn't a holiday supposed to be about feeling healthy and refreshed by the end of it, instead of well, fatter? Our raw food festival lunch included the Sun-Dried Tomato and Carrot Burgers and the Red Pepper, Dill and Cashew Ricotta as a dip.

The Soundscape area was a huge hit. It was a cacophony of joyous noise that only kids can make when bashing together various hand made instruments.

What could be more whimsical than a labyrinth made of bunting, created by the hands of wee ones?

Jethro spent a lot of time snuggled up in the Ergo but the Festival had a fabulous Twist and Toddle Tent for 0-5's to play around in. I love this little guy so hard. Look at that baby tongue and crazy hair! 

The Vancouver International Children's Festival runs until June 3rd on Granville Island. Don't miss the chance to take your kidlets!
