MÉGANE LEBLANC, 6 YEARS OLD

MARIANNE CÔTÉ, 10 YEARS OLD
”We set up a tent behind the house once, just like when we go camping. I slept in it with my mom and my sister. We went to bed later than usual. It was a little cold during the night, but we cuddled so it was nice. In the morning, the sun woke us up!”
XAVIER FORTIN, 10 YEARS OLD
“I used to have a garden in my yard. It was fun because I could play in the soil to plant vegetables. I would pick tomatoes and cucumbers to make recipes.”
AMÉLIE GAGNON, 6 YEARS OLD
“During the summer, I can invite my cousin over. We get on really well. One night, we watched a movie and ate popcorn. She slept in my room on my bunk bed.”
HENRI ROY, 4 YEARS OLD
“Last summer, I made a piñata with my mom. We decorated it and put candy inside. We hung it in the yard and I invited friends over to break it. That’s what I liked best. It was so much fun! I love candy!”
ZARAH ES-SALHI, 9 YEARS OLD
“Last summer, we went to see a classical music concert at the park. It was such nice music. There were three musicians. On our way back, we started getting hungry, so we stopped for something to eat.”
ARIANE FORTIN, 8 YEARS OLD
“I like it in the summer when I can bake cakes with my mom. Sometimes we make carrot cake or fruit cake. My favourite is chocolate. I put the ingredients in a mixing bowl and I press the button to warm up the oven. They take a long time to cook, but we can eat them afterwards. They’re super yummy!”
JULIA-ROSE CROUSSETTE, 5 YEARS OLD
“I like playing baseball with my parents. When I throw or hit the ball, my dad catches it with his glove. Once I hit the ball really hard with my bat. It hit the house, but it didn’t break anything!”
OLIVIER FAUCHER, 5 YEARS OLD
Even if your child enjoys himself at daycare, it’s a good idea to have him take a little break from it.
The most important thing for your child is to spend quality time with you.
There’s no need to organize everything, it’s good for your child to enjoy free play from time to time.
