Our favourite creative activities include popsicle watercolour painting and ice cream play dough.

Who doesn't like seeing cute animals on a daily basis. The amazing Shedd Aquarium in Chicago posts daily videos featuring their many aquatic animals with fun facts. Check out their videos of the animals visiting each other at a safe social distance - our favourite being the penguins going on their daily walk throughout the aquarium!

5. @avenuemagazine

Avenue Magazine Calgary (our hometown!) has always made sure to feature local businesses and personal stories. But during a scary time in an uncertain economy, their posts and stories encouraging support for YYC based businesses is a God send for small businesses. From where to get takeout or how to utilize counselling services, they're doing small acts that mean the world to many Calgarians.
