Ah, March Break, the worst holiday. It’s too cold to send the little monsters out to terrorize the neighbourhood. It’s too long to guiltlessly let them square their brains. It’s too short to have a proper vacation.
Fear not! It’s not too late to find things to do with your little wretches. Herewith, some last-minute, free-or-cheap, things to do:
All five days: The Weston Public Library has a whole week of STEM programming offered from 1:00 to 2:3o. Registration is now open.
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday: York Rec has leisure swims from 1:30 to 3:30.
On Tuesday: Bob the Magician will be at the Mount Dennis library from 2 to 3.
On Thursday: from 12:30 until 1:30, and again from 1:30 until 2:30, Maya-waasige will share traditional indigenous stories at the Mount Dennis Library.
On Friday: The Weston Public Library will have Lego Mania from 3 until 4.
Good for a trip: By then, god willing, maple sap will be running, and the Kortright Centre is always good. They have a maple syrup festival all week long. Black Creek Pioneer Village will also be having a maple syrup festival. Kids enter free!
