Tiny Seedlings’ fifth annual Shamrock Skate takes place on March 14.
Over the years, the event has brought thousands of children to participate in physical activity with their family and friends on the ice at the Stouffville Ninth Line Arena. Parents, grandparents and guardians alike have reaped the benefits of skating, while participating in the many activities Tiny Seedlings have featured over the years, which have included Lego building, magic shows, painted pottery, sports coach-active sessions and, of course, featuring Stouffville’s talented hockey players from the Stouffville Spirit and Stouffville Clippers.
Tiny Seedlings brings in student volunteers from the local schools to help with the families on site and instil even more community spirit as well.
“Integrating physical activity for family fun is what we’re all about,” says Shana Daniel, Tiny Seedlings director.
“Watching our members who’ve grown with us over the years is pure inspiration for our next events too,” says Darlene Shaw, Tiny Seedlings media relations. This year, Crockadoodle Stouffville will be delighting the kids with painted pottery as a planned activity on site at the event.
Parents still deciding how to keep their young ones busy during the March Break week will be pleased as the event takes place from 1-4 p.m. on March 14.
