Spring break is eagerly awaited by students of all ages. Sometimes parents run short of imagination to find interesting activities for children. To inspire you, South Shore employees offer you their ideas for activities!
Veronique : If the weather isn’t nice outside, build forts indoors with sheets and living room furniture. Let your children create their own scenarios. Then bring them snacks so they can have a picnic!
Sophie : Organize dinners in the living room, maybe even in pajamas, after a full day of activities. For mothers with little girls, shopping with dinner in a restaurant is greatly appreciated, by both daughter and mother!
Alain : In colder climates, don’t miss out on winter sports like alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, skating and ice fishing!
Alejandro : Children are always eager for a classic outing at the movies and a family restaurant. It’s simple, but they appreciate it so much!
Michele : To make snowmobiling even more fun, attach a sled to the back on fine winter days. Guaranteed enjoyment!
Ginette : More “artistic” activities like do-it-yourselfing, scrapbooking and jewellery making, as well as playing with Lego and puzzles, are perfect for rainy or colder days.
Yanick : In Québec, going to a sugaring off party is an ideal activity! Or for those who like to draw, do painting on wood (buy your materials at the Dollar store – it’s much less expensive!).
Julie : Build campfires (yes, even in winter!) and visit a museum, depending on the exhibitions presented.
Steve : It’s fun to cook as a family, whether you are making spaghetti sauce or cookies! Involve your children in every step, from preparation to decorating.
