Initially this blog post was going to be launching to discuss some tips for things to do in Downtown Langley over spring break. Since writing this blog the situation of COVID-19 has changed drastically and it became apparent to me that it didn’t seem right to post the same blog I had originally written. Therefor I decided to re-write this blog post, to be more relevant for the current situation we find ourselves in.
When Pearce and I visited a few weeks ago I wanted to make it a fun day for us, so I turned the mural walk into a treasure hunt (Pearce currently loves treasure hunts). I made special clues for us to read that would lead us to each mural and we picked up a mural walk map from Discover Downtown Langley Business Association (these can be found here). We loved that the mural walk took us weaving through all the stores, and even to Douglas Park for a break with some much-needed play time. Then it was back on the hunt for the next mural. As the day went on Pearce got very creative with his poses, and a bit of a sugar high as we enjoyed a few treats along the way. Pearce absolutely loved his treasure hunt day which ended with $20 dollars to spend in Sticky’s Candy Store. You can use the clues below to go on the same hunt we went on.The Passionate home. A MAMA Sweater, a Hot dog T-shirt for Pearce, a ceramic soap dish, and a kitchen floor mat from This is It Gifts, and A Smash and Tess Romper, a Stitch Please Scrunchie, a jar of Jars by Jodi Cookie Mix, a Sushi t-shirt for Brooks from The Local Space. Oh and of course I also got a bag of Candy from Sticky’s.
