Social circles may still be limited these days, but there’s still plenty to do indoors and outdoors, online and in-person over the upcoming Family Day weekend.

Over 40 family-friendly options are available to get you started on planning activities close to home including:

  1. Picking up a mini free sketchbook from noon to 4 p.m. at Britannia Shipyards and finding a quiet area among the acres of parkland to sketch at your leisure on your own or with your household group
  2. Getting creative – and maybe a little bit messy – in one of the many virtual and in-person craft sessions that include a clay doughnut art workshop, D.I.Y. photo frame craft and balloon twisting 101
  3. Trying to figure out how a professional magician pulls off those clever tricks during an online magic show for the whole family
  4. Getting an online workout in with sessions that include Jazz Dance, Tap Dance, Yoga, Bollywood Bhangra Fusion and Zumba®
  5. Gathering online with others to socialize and learn with the Show and Tell and Scavenger Hunt, and Storytime with a Naturalist
  6. Taking in “Inaction”, the new sculptural and performance-based installation at the Richmond Art Gallery
  7. Signing up for a registered family swim at our new state-of-the-art Minoru Centre for Active Living or family skating session at Minoru Arenas
  8. Walking in the picturesque trails in Richmond Nature Park, Terra Nova Rural Park or Garry Point Park.

All activities are virtual or physically-distanced and meet strict health and safety guidelines as set out by local and provincial health authorities where required.
