February 15th is Family Day all across Ontario. That means that rather than endure a Monday morning commute, you can spend the day enjoying the company of the people that matter most, your family. Here are some tips for enjoying the day right here in Bowmanville.
This Family Day, your family can enjoy a free day of fun at a festival designed to get you active, learn something new, and enjoy time together. Drop by Winter Wonderlearn at the Clarington Public Library. This year's theme is Flight; you'll experience interactive activities and learn about the skies. Look through a telescope, make "bird-brained" artwork, and learn all about owls and raptors at shows with special guest The Ontario Specialized Species Centre.
Why not take your family for a skate around a local skating rink? Both RBC and Clarington Hyundai are sponsoring free public skating hours this Family day at the Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex and the South Courtice Arena. Bring your skates, and enjoy an afternoon of fun on the ice.
You don't have to leave your home to enjoy family fun. There are lots of great family-friends crafts, games and activities that you can do together, all while staying warm. Whether puzzles, card games, or magic shows – the possibilities are endless. Here is a great list of ideas to help you plan a fun afternoon for your little ones.
The most important thing, though, is that you spend the day together, as a family. There's no right or wrong way to spend Family Day – as long as you have fun!
