From the staff to the facility, the professionalism and discipline that is being put forward makes it an incredible program that my son has enjoyed more than anything! Even during these times of uncertainty, distancing etc they have maintained a place that is fun for the kids but also teaches them respect and the importance of discipline.

We had our son's 6th birthday party here on the weekend. All the children had a great time. They kept the kids busy the whole party and were very involved! Our son had a fantastic birthday party here, I would highly recommend!

No Limits Martial Arts is fantastic! The Sensei's have a genuine love for the kids, and they encourage and motivate their advancement. They also encourage them to be good people and help everyone in the world for whatever cause. My daughter is a student here, and I plan on signing up the other two when they are old enough. I hope this is the one thing they stick with, and it's all because of the owners/family that run this place. LOVE THEM!

Tips and Tricks to Help Teach Kids to Not Be Wasteful

From time to time, we may catch our child doing things we don’t agree with. Whether it be taking a single bite out of a sandwich before throwing it out, or tossing plastic bottles into the trash rather than recycling them, as parents, we can easily correct this behaviour and teach our children the importance of not being wasteful of our valuable resources.

Start with the Basics 

Even though it might be hard to explain the big picture as to why it is important to recycle to our kids, we can help them understand that doing so saves our environment. Introduce your child to the concept of recycling by explaining to them which items are recyclable, and those that are not. A great way to do this is my making a chart of recyclable items and pasting it on top of your blue bin. 

If you find that your child is a picky eater and often leaves their plate more than half full, give them a friendly reminder that there are many people who aren’t as lucky as they are to have meals readily available to them. It is not an opportunity for you to make them aware of the burdens of the world, however to help them realize the importance of respecting and appreciating their resources. 

Make it FUN 

Crafts make everything fun. Teach your children to be more resourceful by encouraging them to reuse everyday items. Here is a cool craft that your child will love:

DIY Water Bottle Piggy Bank

For this activity you will need:

  • An empty plastic bottle
  • Pink construction paper
  • Beads
  • Glue
  • Scissors 
  • Markers

Start off by gluing pink construction paper all around the bottle. Then, cut a slit on the top of the bottle for the coins. Use wooden beads for the feet which should be glued on to the bottom of your piggy bank. Grab some leftover construction paper to make the ears. Once the ears are cut out and glued on, feel free to decorate your masterpiece by giving your pig some eyes and a nose!
