With March Break just two weeks away it’s time to start thinking about how to keep your kids’ minds active and occupied while they are out of school. We’ve come up with a list that goes beyond your traditional March Break activities and will stretch your child’s thinking and creativity!
Bring your kids to the Toronto Zoo to learn about animals from all over the world! This March Break the Toronto Zoo is offering an engaging program with Thomas & Friends and includes scavenger hunts, colouring, play zones, and feedings happening each day throughout the week. In addition, there’s an Orchid Oasis event happening!
Discount: CAA members get a 10% discount
Toronto Library Card Holders can rent passes here
Reptilia is a great place to get up close and personal with reptiles, especially during their daily feedings where you’ll often be able to interact with the animals and their keepers. We encourage you to go early so that you can avoid crowds and school groups! Their Daily Feeding Schedule can be found here.
Discounts: Costco members get a discount, which can be found here.
Black Creek Pioneer Village March Break Mystery
The Black Creek Pioneer Village is a cute little heritage centre that allows children to experience up-close what it was like to live in pioneer times. From artifacts that children can touch and see to actors that teach about pioneer living, children get immersed in the experience. This March Break they’re offering a free program, which includes a mystery adventure, maple syrup making and wagon rides!
Fee: Up to 4 kids free with the purchase of 1 Adult ticket.
Local Library Programs
Check out your local library to see what their program offerings are for children during the March Break. For example, the Richmond Hill Central Library offers a Beeswax Candle program and a DIY Board Game Program free for members, offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. This is a great opportunity for children to experience out-of-the-box activities that they wouldn’t normally get to be involved in at school!
Did you know that Apple offers free 60-90 minute video, photography and coding classes for children and adults? Sign your kids up for a session or two at Eaton Centre, Yorkdale or Sherway Gardens!
