#KinderMom ~ Solutions for families dring the March Break

I am thrilled to be back as a #KinderMom in 2012.

Kinder Canada looks to find the little joys in life and making time to play each and every day.   Which pretty much epitomizes my own life motto.   A partnership with Kinder just seems to be a great fit!

With our March break from school right around the corner, I like to line up some fun activities for the kids to take part in.  Yet, I don't want to be breaking the bank while spending the week together.

One of our all time favourite places to visit is the Butterfly Conservatory in Cambridge, Ontario.  We never get tired of visiting and seeing beautiful butterflies.  It is fantastic for kids of all ages.  It is close enough to home, yet it is far enough to make it a full day outing.  I like it for it's educational value, but shh...don't tell the kids they might be learning a thing or two while they are there.

We are so lucky to have an amazing library in our community, which welcomes children through their doors with open arms.  Our local library offers children's programming at minimal cost.  And, my kids LOVE spending time at the library.  Often they plan special craft and activity days, where you can drop your kids off for a few hours at a time.  It gives the kids a chance to get out, while expressing their creative side, and it gives mom a few minutes to do what needs to get done.  Usually, during the March Break our library also sponsors a family movie night.  The kids take their blankies and pillows and cuddle down to enjoy a fun movie with some popcorn and juice.

Not to be forgotten, in our town we have a great community center, which has a pool and ice pads.  They have open to the public sessions, but if we get really lucky there will be a sponsored swim or skate for the whole family. 

Once, I start looking around our community it is easy to find ways to put in our days during the March break from school.  We will be finding the little joys in life together!

Visit Kinder Canada on facebook where you will find sneak peeks of the exciting new toys found inside the famous chocolate eggs.   During the month of February why not create your very own My Kinder Moments photo frame.  Someone who creates a frame this month is going to win $500.00 to put toward a staycation this March break!

Oh I like the sounds of the Butterfly Conservatory. Cambridge is within just over an hour drive for us so you're right, a day trip, yet not too far.

Thanks for the tips!

We try to find swimming or something, but usually hockey takes precedent as my son always has a spring break tournament. :)
