Sanity saving fun for little folk (and moms)
HELP, PLEASE GET ME OUT OF THE HOUSE!
If you’re parenting small kids, you know that sometimes those rainy winter days can drag on.
Never fear, Burnaby’s malls are coming to your rescue by giving you a chance to get out and enjoy some social time with other parents and littles.
HALLELUJAH, I AM SAVED! NOW WHERE CAN I GO?
Brentwood Town Centre:
Brentwood offers up Groovin’ Babies Dance Class (led by the lovely folks of Runners and Booties Fitness) in the carpeted area outside of London Drugs on the upper level.
It runs Wednesdays from 11 to 11:30 a.m., and you can dance and interact with your babies and toddlers to fun, lively music – and meet some other moms (and maybe even an occasional dad) while you’re at it.
Register online at www.runnersandbootiesfitness.com or call 604-492-3688.
Lougheed Town Centre:
Lougheed has Zumba for Moms and Babies running Fridays at 10 a.m. (also offered by Runners and Booties Fitness). Babies can be comfy in car seats or strollers while moms dance around to the Latin rhythms of salsa, cumbia, belly dance and more, led by a certified Zumba instructor. It runs Fridays from 10 to 10:45 a.m. – meet in front of London Drugs on the lower level.

BUT I’M REALLY NOT THAT ENERGETIC. CAN’T I DO SOMETHING QUIETER?
For a slightly less active form of entertainment, you can also enjoy storytime and crafts on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m., also in front of London Drugs. A storyteller will entertain the kids with different books each week, followed by a related craft. Upcoming sessions include About Me on Feb. 27, Fold Up Bugs on March 5, Hand Puppet Making on March 12, Springtime Collages on March 19 and Easter Baskets on March 26.
