March Break is around the corner and we're betting that you're still looking for some family-friendly activities to do with your kids. But it's a hard time of year (not winter anymore, but not quite spring either), so it can be challenging to come up with a variety of fun activities that both kids AND adults will like. But, we say, this March Break ditch the couch (and your Netflix addiction) and instead get on board with these 5 family-friendly and foodie-inspired activities.
1. Throw a vintage games night
Whether it’s Twister, Clue or a good old game of Scrabble, there’s no better time to dig into a board game than during March Break. And the best part is, second hand stores are filled to the brim with them so you can get a wide variety without breaking the bank. Add a few snacks like popcorn, no-nuts and bolts and some freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for dessert and you've got a fun family night covered.
2. Make endless hot drinks
With spring around the corner, there is not much time left to indulge in your favourite warm bevvies. From hot toddies, mulled wine and boozy hot cocao (for the adults) to hot chocolate with marshmallows for the kids, there’s no better time to indulge in delicious drinks while staying cuddled up inside. So, turn on a movie and keep a big batch warm on the stovetop with a ladle on hand, so everyone can help themselves.

3. Have a night of indulgent snacks
There’s no time like winter to throw caution to the wind and indulge on your favorite treats, guilt-free. Whether it’s time to bring out the fondue set, throw a DIY grilled cheese station or have a Mexican fiesta with endless nachos, dive into your favourite treats to keep everyone’s spirits high.
4. Make cookies with the kids
Baking with your kids is another fun activity you can fit in at anytime over the March Break. Pick a day that is not so nice outside, head to the shop to buy a selection of baking ingredients and plan a marathon day of endless cookie baking. A bonus? They’ll learn how to work as a team, build their passion andd become more independent in the kitchen.

Do anything, go to the park, go skating, go skiing, go to the beach and run. Just make sure you spend lots of quality time outside this March Break!
