Family-Friendly Activities You Can Do Over March Break

Looking for something to do over March Break? Here are a few family-friendly activities to keep everyone having fun.

Although March Break is often an opportunity for students to catch up on homework and assignments, it's also a chaotic time for family life. Everyone is at home and in each other's way, and it's hard to come up with things to do that will be exciting for everyone.

If you're looking for inspiration when it comes March Break activities, here's what we recommend:

1. Arena or outdoor skating


Depending on the weather in your city, consider taking your family to your nearest outdoor rink (or arena) for a fun day of skating. Not only will you get them moving, but it's also a great way to spend time together.

Visit one of these 9 breathtaking places for outdoor ice skating across Canada.

2. Sledding


Sledding is a fun and cheap activity to do with your kids. If there's still snow left in your area, head to the nearest hills for some slope fun. You can stop for a hot chocolate on your way home for an extra treat. The kids are sure to love it!

3. Sugar shack


March is the prime season for maple syrup and a visit to the nearest sugar shack. You're in for a delicious meal and a lovely walk in the woods.

4. Try out a kid-friendly recipe


Set up your kitchen, prepare your ingredients, and make your kids sous-chefs for a fun family cooking night. As a bonus, cooking with your kids teaches them a valuable lesson about helping others and sharing.

5. Take a trip to the botanical garden


A visit to the botanical garden is not only visually impressive, but also educational for both kids and adults. The Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ont., organizes a week-full of kid-friendly events over March Break, so make sure to check that out if you're in the area.
