Girls Incorporated of Upper Canada was pleased to accept a generous donation from the Fairies in the Park event held June 18 at St. Lawrence Park.
Celebrating 10 years since its conception by daughter Evi of the organizer Stephanie Forgues, Fairies in the Park is an opportunity for kids to enjoy stories, yoga, games, crafts, music, treats, arts, and workshops all while costumed as a mythical creature (or superhero) of their choice, be it a fairy, unicorn, dragon or mermaid.
Girls Inc. of Upper Canada staff were on hand at the event to host an interactive STEM workshop complete with slime and exploding paint bombs which were a hit with the kids attending and an opportunity for children and parents to engage hands-on learning.
