Family Day in the GTA

Family Day in the GTA

Family Day in the GTA

Whether your ideal Family Day is hanging out at home or getting out of the house, there is plenty you can do across the GTA.

Here’s my round-up of some of my favorite Family Day activities for 2020!

Staying Home and Free Activity Ideas

Board Games and Puzzles are a great stay-at-home activity. There’s something for every age and every interest.

Head out for a walk or hike. There are tons of trails and parks to see. Even if it’s a simple walk around your neighbourhood, it’s a good way to get active as a family.

Refresh your house. This *may* not be your kid’s idea of a good time, but it’s a great chance to get the family involved with a big task you’ve been putting off. Rearranging the furniture, getting a start on spring cleaning, or painting a room. Get the whole family involved and check it off your list!
