Halton and Hamilton's Best Digital Resource for Families

Extended March Break 2020

We know the extended March Break (3 weeks for most) came out of left field, and didn’t leave much time for planning. But planning family fun is what we at Active Parents do BEST!

We want to help all parents with anything they need, so we’ve pulled together all of the ideas we’ve got to keep you and your family entertained and educated for the next few weeks.

And if you need something more, please let us know in the comments or by emailing amber@activeparents.ca
