Rec's In The House

Rec's In The House! provides you with fun activities to do from home. We want you to stay active, stay mentally healthy, and stay home! 

A featured activity will be posted each day and then will be moved to its corresponding tab (shown below). Activities will remain there for you to check out later or do again if it becomes a family favourite.  

Here's our daily themes:

Masterpiece Monday - Each week we will provide a themed activity and ask you to send us your masterpiece via email. This may involve, drawing, painting, colouring, a diorama...the possibilities are endless. The activity will be broken up by age categories with a winner in each age group. The winners will be announced the following Monday. Details of each activity will be explained as it is published weekly.

Trivia Tuesday - Sharpen your minds for some family-fun, trivia! Each week you will be challenged with some questions that will test your knowledge on an array of topics. We will try our best to keep them as locally-themed as possible.

Wellness Wednesday - On this day we are asking everyone to take some time to check in and reward yourself for being awesome! We'll provide some wellness tips and activities that will assist in maintaining a healthy you!

Tasty Thursday  - This may become a favourite! Every Thursday check in and discover a new recipe that you and your family can make together and eat together. 

Fundy Y  Friday - We have partnered with the Fundy YMCA in an effort to keep everyone physically active and mentally healthy. Every Friday an amazing volunteer from the Fundy Y will be offering a session via Zoom. 

If you have any suggestions or ideas you'd like to share, whether it be a favourite recipe, some trivia knowledge, a craft, or a wellness tip, please let us know! We'd love to hear from you:

Tasty Thursday - Oct 29

This is our last Halloween-themed recipe so I'm "tricking" the kids with this "treat"! This recipe is actually kind of a healthy snack...shhhh, don't tell. And, it's super easy for you and the kiddos to make.

Frozen Chocolate Banana Ghosts

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup good quality white chocolate*
  • 8 mini chocolate chips for eyes
  • 4 popsicle sticks

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cut banana in half lengthwise, then in half to make four quarters. Insert popsicle sticks into bananas, and freeze bananas on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  • When the bananas are frozen, fill a coffee mug with chocolate. Melt chocolate in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until the chocolate is melted and soft.
  • Dip the bananas one at a time into the chocolate, scraping off the excess chocolate from the back of the banana, and place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  • Quickly add the chocolate chips for the eyes before the chocolate hardens (you have to work quickly here).
  • Return to the freezer until frozen and ready to eat. Eat frozen.
