Our momstown Milton munchkins had a great time with this months theme-Hats. They had a blast trying on different types of hats and learning new songs. They identified the various types of hats and what purposes they served such as protecting your head, keeping you warm and shading your eyes. The kids also had to figure out what occupation the hats were used for and then sang songs that were related to that particular job. It was a fun way to educate them on the importance of wearing a hat!

This months educational theme for all of our momstown chapters is Hats. Our momstown Milton munchkins had a wonderful time at Scribble n Splatter designing silly hats and feather hats to take home with them. Crafty Critters is a new program that has been introduced as part of our Milton monthly events for 2011. The program allows for our little ones of all ages to get creative,express themselves and make as much of a mess as they want. The best part of the program is that mom doesn't have to clean up! Our next Crafty Critters program is scheduled for Tuesday February 8th. If you would like to attend this event but are not a member please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Our first meeting of 2011 was a huge success. We started off the evening in a training session that focused on Social Media. The ladies came eager to learn and kept our presenter busy with several questions thru out the session. We then headed over to Shoeless Joes for the #MiltonTweetUp4 that was taking place that evening too. Most of our mamas had never been to a "tweet up" and were amazed at just how many entrepreneurs there are in Milton. We had a great time mingling with other business owners. The highlight of the event was when Dalton McGuinty showed up and took the time to meet with each person there. Our next momstown Milton mompreneur evening will be held on Fri Feb 11th at 7pm. If you are not a momstown member but are interested in attending this event, please e-mail email@example.com for the details.

This morning momstown Milton mamas braved the snow storm to attend a health seminar at Rexall pharmacy. This morning's session focused on the best care for a baby. Moms listened to a nutritionist speak while the kiddies enjoyed interacting with one another. After the presentation, kids got to try their hand at bowling and mini golfing, while moms got to enjoy some mom-to-mom chatter! Headstart to Healthy Habits is a bi-weekly program being offered to momstown Milton every other Saturday morning at 10:30. Each week a new topic will be discussed. The next session will run on Saturday, January 29th, the topic is 'what supplements to take during pregnancy'. Here's a picture of some of the kids taking a break from the bowling, colouring and golfing to enjoy a healthy snack!
Momstown Milton moms and babes enjoyed an hour demonstration by Mary-Ann of My Smart Hands. My Smart Hands is a locally run business that specializes in teaching children of all ages American Sign Language. Did you know the ideal time to start with signs is 6 months? We started off the class by going through the alphabet, then progressed to songs. All the children were entertained and having a great time! We sang and signed the hour away and before we knew it, it was time to go! Mary-Ann offers sign langauge classes throughout the week in Milton and surrounding areas.
