Alternative gift ideas for West Shore kids

If you’re looking for an alterative to buying more toys, here are some gift ideas that will get your kids moving.

Victoria Gymnastics has numerous class options ranging from parent and tots to those 18 years and older.

Most class options are available during mornings and evenings so there are flexible options for all schedules.

Prices range anywhere from $55 per month to $150 depending on how many classes are taken per week. You can register online by visiting victoriagymnastics.com or calling 778-265-6414.

If you’re looking for some outdoor adventure, WildPlay (15-1767 Island Hwy.) isn’t for the faint of heart.

It features 11 zip lines, 60 aerial games and a 40 foot jump. While it is closed for the season, once they do reopen, kids of all ages will have a great time feeling the adrenaline rush.

WildPlay has 2018 season passes for a limited early bird rate of $149 ($50 dollars in savings). The park also offers a triple-play deal which includes three popular elements for $54.99.

Away from the ropes, Acrobatics is a fun way to keep children active and engaged in a new activity.

The Rising recently moved to their new West Shore facility and will be hosting its grand opening event on Dec. 17.

You can drop by for that event to learn more about the programs offered and see if you can peak your child’s interest.

With classes ranging for those 18 months to three years, all the way up to those 18 and older, there’s something for everyone.

Some options include silk, hoop, static trapeze and acrobatics.

The school will be closed from Dec. 18 to January for the holiday break but that doesn’t mean you can’t use their classes as a gift idea.

Prices and a full schedule for 2018 are expected to be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, for more information call 250-857-1785 or email therisingcircus@gmail.com.
