Weekend Wrap Up – May 12-13, 2018
May 10, 2018 Amber Rohal

Spring has sprung in Burlington, so let’s do something great this weekend. Active Parents brings you the Weekend Wrap Up to help turn your spare time into quality time.




Bring your family out to Family Playfit and get active in the gym. Play different sports with other families and have fun!


Let your kids explore their creativity at the Michaels Kids Club. Choose from two projects designed specifically for your little maker’s age range. $2, ages 3-8 or $5, ages 6+, supplies are included. Sessions starting every half hour from 10 am – 11:30 am.


Bring your little literature fan to the library for Story Time. 10:00 at Alton, or 10:30 at Central.


Grab the popcorn! It’s Family Favourites Movie time at Cineplex. For only $2.99 a person, you can take the fam to watch the original JUMANJI! Spoiler alert: next week you can watch the NEW Jumanji, too!


Drop into New Appleby library today for some hands-on fun exploring Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Perfect for kids ages 6-9, and no pre-registration required!


It’s Sat-ART-day at Alton library. Grab your friends and family and create some art using supplies from our Loose Parts table.


Join the Burlington Herd at 1 p.m. at Nelson Park for the Herd Home Opener vs. Kitchener. Prizes, games, and an afternoon of entertainment!


From 1-3 p.m. at Michaels, your kids can drop in and make a Mother’s Day photo frame at MakeBreak. See store for full details.


Don’t forget about drop-in ice skating, swimming and shinny hockey!





The Art Gallery of Burington is a favourite spot of ours, especially on Sundays when they open up their Creative Hub for a free, drop-in creative arts class. Kids use all mediums to create mini-masterpieces, and volunteer artisans are there to help guide and support.


Get Back to Nature with a free, guided hike with the Royal Botanical Gardens. Each week there is a new meeting place, and a new path to explore. This week’s meeting point is Cootes South Shore.


Reserve a spot at the Apple Store’s Movie Making class for kids, and a Parent Visibility workshop, at the same time!


Embrace the warmer temperatures and go for a swim! Indoors, but it still counts!



Have a blast this weekend, and remember, if you found a new family event because of Active Parents, tell your friends about our page! And tag your pictures with #thingstodoinburlon and #activeparentsca to be featured on our social media! We owe this great site to YOU!
