Happy Family Day

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada would like to wish you and your loved ones a very happy Family Day!

Here are a few activities/ideas we think you and your whole family can enjoy:

  • Check out your local community calendars for special public events as many usually have reduced prices or free entry.
  • Enjoy some winter fun such as tobogganing; ice skating or snowshoeing followed by some hot chocolate and a special treat.
  • Check out the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada’s Mobile App for a variety of activities that can be done with the whole family. We suggest taking a peek at the cooking and baking section for some yummy goodies.
  • Did you know that Family Day falls on the same date as National Heritage Day (except in British Columbia)? This could be a great time to explore your personal heritage and family history.
  • Grab some family movies, board games, and some favorite treat’s and have a family movie/game day!
  • Check out some local art galleries or museums as some have special exhibits and activities specifically for Family Day.
Most of all… have fun!
