Edmonton Does your kid love nature? They can explore bugs and animals at the John Janzen Nature Centre or visit the Edmonton Valley Zoo! For the dramatic kid, there's the John Walter Magazine where you can play dress up in old-fashioned costumes. Edmonton offers a variety of places to host a super cool b-day bash!

Calgary Throw your birthday kid a fun, educational bash at the Bow Habitat Station, where they'll learn about aquatic and wetland life in Alberta. Not her thing? Let her ride around on ponies and pet all the animals at Horsin' Around. Still not working for her? She and her friends can zen out at Little Hippies Yoga and meditate to their hearts content. Bonus: they have healthy smoothies for the kids, too!

Saskatoon We've found the best of the best in Saskatoon. If your kid's a hockey fan (who isn't?) they can watch the Saskatoon Blades play while enjoying some yummy ice cream. If she's not-so-into hockey, she and her friends can tumble and roll in gymnastics, play soccer or splash around at an indoor water park!
