Toddler Time June 27th

10am-1pm
🦋 Butterflies 🦋
As the weather grows warmer and flowers start to bloom, preschoolers become more interested in the world around them. Many preschoolers are interested in bugs of all types but If you ask a group of preschoolers to name their favorite insect or bug, chances are you’ll get quite a few votes for the butterfly. This week we will have live butterflies to get up close to and release for everyone to see! We will be releasing the butterflies at 11am on the hill by the old house. We will also have multiple butterfly themed sensory tables and a butterfly craft.

We also have a special guest coming, Sylvia Cortazo, Parent Consultant & Child Behaviour Specialist, Owner of Success in Steps. She will be ready to meet local parents at the farm who are challenged by their families’ current situation. Whether it is tantrums, aggression, toileting issues, anxiety or difficulty with accepting change or something more individual, Sylvia will be able to provide some feedback and support to help spend less time on challenges and behaviours and more time enjoying your family!

Every week during toddler time you will get to see all the farm animals, feed the goats, take a walk in the woods out to our natural pond and spot the herons in their nests. Bring a picnic lunch or snacks and spend some time in our games field playing.

This is not a structured program, we encourage you to let your little one take the lead and let them decide how they want to spend their time at the farm. Slow down and let them explore the farm at their own pace.

Toddler time is an exclusive time slot for toddlers (age 0-6) and their Moms, Dads and caregivers.
•$6 admission (infants under 1 are free)
•Animal feed at the farm is cash only
We also have lots of FREE parking.
*All children must be supervised at all times.*

June 24th

 

☀️The Log Farm will be CLOSED this SUNDAY June 24th. We will be at FRANKS on greenbank (283) with our gang of goats to help support Franks fundraiser for Tourette syndrome.

They will be holding their 8th Annual Tourette Syndrome (TS) Awareness Fundraiser for the Ottawa Chapter of the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada, on Sunday June 24, 2018 from 10:00 – 3:00pm.

TS is a unique neurological disorder affecting as many as one in 100 Canadian children. It currently has no cure.

Unlike pledge-driven walks or runs typically organized by charities, Frank’s Catering and Baked Goods will see over 1500 supporters come out to enjoy Frank’s world famous sandwiches and his unbelievably delicious baked goods while donating to a great cause.

In addition to what will be another highly anticipated event, they have started this Go Fund Me Campaign for anyone looking to donate but unable to attend the event in person.

For close to 30 years the Ottawa Chapter has battled against widespread myths, misconceptions and ignorance surrounding TS through a myriad of support programs and public awareness campaigns. Many children who have Tourette Syndrome are also affected by associative conditions including obsessive compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, depression, sleeping disorders, to name a few.

Another Toddler Time Wednesday!

🚜 This week is all about TRACTORS
Most Children get excited when they see a tractor on the road and love to watch them work in the fields. This week at Toddler time get up close to the BIG green tractor, the kids can climb in the bucket, sit in the tires for a picture or climb up the ladder and see how big it is!
We will have tractor themed sensory tables to play at for some messy, muddy, sensory play fun! Sensory play is intended to stimulate a child’s senses. It can also help develop language skills, cognitive growth, problems solving skills, and even social interactions among children of equal age.

June 13th Toddler Time

Toddler Time • Birds and Nests • 10am-1pm
Drop in for ages 0-6 *children must be supervised*

As Spring is in full swing, we have really noticed the birds out and about. Every year we have lots of barn swallow families nesting in our barns! We encourage you to bring your binoculars this week so your little ones can try to spot some birds around the farm. It’s so exciting to witness nesting and new life. Birds will gather twigs, grass, leaves, moss, mud and even small pieces of thread to build their nests. We will have a table set up with these materials for the little ones to try to build a nest just like the birds, they can stack and weave them and discover how hard it is and see how much work goes into building a nest. There will be multiple bird themed sensory tables to explore as well. At the farm we have two geese currently sitting on their nest, you can peek in and see them, we are expecting the goslings to hatch anytime after June 20th. We also have a mother hen with 11 tiny chicks out for viewing.
