Saturday

Play Fit is a fantastic indoor program designed to help kids under 6 improve their movement and physical activity – disguised as FUN! Drop into Brant Hills today and burn off some energy with your kids!

 

All aboard! Plan to take a trip to ‘Central Station’ on for a fun day of stories, model trains, and train-themed activities. Drop by to watch garden-scale (big!) model trains in action. “Adventures on the Island of Sodor” features an operating Thomas the Tank Engine with Anna and Clarabelle along with exciting stories about Thomas & friends.

 

Michael’s Kid’s Club let your kids explore their creativity while you shop! Kids 3 and up can enjoy a quick project and take home a finished masterpiece. This week kids will make Valentine Love Bugs.

 

Take your kids to a special storytime perfect for preschoolers. Children under the age of 3 are welcome but must bring their adult caregiver.

 

Join Cineplex on Saturday mornings at 11 am for Cineplex Family Favourites. Watch a family favourite film each week for only $2.99. It’s a fun and affordable way to enjoy the weekend with your family! This week’s feature film is SING!

 

It’s Sat-ART-day at Alton Library! Grab your friends and family and create some art using supplies from our Loose Parts table. Sign up for a free class or book club while you’re there!

 

The whole family can Ice skate for free at Spencer Smith Park, or take the fun indoors at Mainway during the afternoon, or an evening skate at Appleby.

 

Discover the magic of winter at night, the snow illuminated by moonlight and the stars bright in the night sky. Your guide will lead you on a snowshoe hike through Mountsberg’s beautiful landscape. The evening will end fireside with some tasty hot chocolate. Not recommended for children under the age of 10. Pre-registration required.

 

Take the family and bounce the evening away at Rockin’ Saturday at Rockin’ Jump! It’s an all-ages open jump night starting at 8 p.m. Included in your admission are 2 hours of jumping, a free slice of pizza and a fountain drink!

 

 

Sunday

The Art Gallery of Burlington’s Creative Hub is one of our favourite places to visit in Burlington. Last Sunday, the open studio volunteers guided us in ways to make a Picasso inspired guitar using cardboard tissue boxes, buttons, tape and bottle caps! Check out our Instagram for pictures. It’s a free drop-in and a definite hidden gem in Burlington.

 

Drop into your local Indigo for Shopkins and Lego Minifigure Swap! Come bring your doubles and trade with other children.

 

Visit Ireland House Museum for a Heritage Open House. Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI, visitors will learn about field medicine during the war in a special presentation, “The Canadian Army Medical Corps”. Baking demonstrations on the open hearth and sampling of wartime hard tack biscuits will be ongoing throughout the afternoon. Guests are invited to tour the historic Ireland family home. This event is FREE to attend.

 

Slap on those ice skates and choose from free skating all day at Spencer Smith Park, or drop into the morning session at Mountainside, or the afternoon sessions at Central, Skyway, and Aldershot arenas!

 

Family Play Fit is a fantastic indoor program designed to help kids under 6 improve their movement and physical activity – disguised as FUN! Drop into Tansley Woods today and burn off some energy with your kids!
