March break is always fun and this year there are some cool events happening in Ottawa. We know that parents can get easily burnt out over the break but there are some tricks to avoiding it. There are always fun camps to take the kids to and activities to do at home, inside or outside. If you don‘«÷t want to plan big it‘«÷s always a nice idea to plan little things throughout the day to make it fun for the kids, but it doesn’t have to be a long crazy day that involves a tremendous amount planning.
Making a “party day” for the kids is always fun and simple. Make invitations and cupcakes and have some neighborhood kids/ friends over for a tea party. Have a slumber party and make pizza with the kids, visit dad at work and go for lunch, road trip to a local sugar bush is something the kids always would like and of course some crafty things are a good idea to keep the kids busy for a few hours.
Taking kids swimming or to a day camp is another way to get some time to yourself or if you‘«÷re working it‘«÷s a great way for the kids to have fun and it keeps you from trying to find a babysitter.
No matter what, there is always something fun to do for the break and it doesn‘«÷t have to be crazy hectic. Ottawa has a lot going on for March Break that would make the week fly by. Have fun!
