Since June 30th the Leduc Regional Parent Link team has been hosting flash mob gatherings for parents and children throughout Leduc City every Monday morning. With the use of Twitter, Facebook and Leduc’s radio station 93.1 The One parents receive a one-hour notice which of Leduc’s Parks the Play Mob will be held.
Tonya Sabourin is the Leduc Regional Parent Link Coordinator and with her staff of Kelsey Jackson, Becky Pigott, and Darlene Ede work tirelessly making the morning filled with a number of activities spread throughout the playground area.
4CATS Arts Studio’s Jolyne DeMarco joined them on August 11th and provided children with opportunities to partake in a number of craft activities. 4CATS is a worldwide art studio that can trace its origin to when Pablo Picasso would meet with artist friends at the 4Cats Café in Spain. The Leduc Studio has been open for about a year and serves artists aged 2 to 15 allowing them to learn about famous artists and use professional art materials to create works of art in the spirit and style of those artists. The studio is located at 5108 – 47th Street.
To date this has been a very successful activity for parents and their children bring them together and having a number of fun activities for children up to six years old. The events run from 9:30 to 11AM and has drawn from a dozen to over forty participants.
