March Break is upon us! Whether you’re heading to the cottage or staying at home, there are plenty of activities for nature lovers to consider when the family starts to feel house-bound.

1. Celebrate maple syrup: It’s almost spring and the sap is running! Get in on the action—visit a nearby maple syrup festival, whether you’re in Ontario, or in another province where the sweet stuff is made.

How do you make maple syrup? Tap into the fun with our introduction to syrup, and then cook up some delicious maple treats!

2. Go mad for museums: Visit a museum or science centre in your neck of the woods. Here are a few new exhibits we’re excited about:

  • The Royal Ontario Museum: If you find yourself in Toronto over the break, plan a visit to the ROM’s new Water exhibition, a great way to learn about this precious resource beloved to all cottagers, featuring hands-on activities for kids, live animals, and multi-media displays, and “dive into” their water-themed March Break activities for families, or their regular suite of great kids’ programs.

3.  Cultivate a budding artist: For the artistic nature-lover, get your inner Picasso—or A.Y. Jackson—kick-started at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg. From musical performances and art camp to drop-in activities (for those of us challenged by planning ahead), there are lots of March Break programs and activities to check out. And, you can meet Michael Martchenko, who will be there for their Family Sunday program on March 13th as part of their regular March programing.

Have a safe and happy break!
