Family Day is an important celebration to let your family know that they are loved and appreciated, while spending some quality time together. If you have not planned anything for Family Day yet, and are looking for some inspiration, here are some activities in Bowmanville, Milton, and Oshawa for Family Day.

Get Active at the Milton Sports Centre

The winter months have kept you and your family inside, and all of you might be craving some active time together. The Milton Sports Centre will be offering sponsored public skates all day on Family Day, as well as family swims, family dodgeball, and many more activities. For a full list of the activities being offered, visit the Town of Milton Website.  

Spend a Day on the Slopes

Family Day 2018 is also United Way Day at Glen Eden Ski Resort, which means there are special events happening all day. Spend the morning enjoying the slopes with the family, then rendezvous with each other for an afternoon magic show around the campfire. There will also be food, drinks, and some Olympic fun. So grab your family and get them out to the slopes at Glen Eden Ski Resort.

Family Day at the Canadian Automotive Museum

There is no better way to spend Family Day than making your own pair of racing goggles, touring the different car exhibits, and creating a balloon race car of your very own. This year for Family Day, the Canadian Automotive Museum is offering all of those activities and more as part of the general admission. This Family Day activity is perfect for families with young children, or anyone who is interested in automotives.  

Paint the Old Town

Spend the day learning about the history of Oshawa in the 1800’s, while encouraging your children’s’ creativity. This year for Family Day, the Oshawa Museum is offering kids the opportunity to take a guided tour of the museum, then finish the day off by colouring old images of Oshawa from the early days. The program is by donation, and is encouraging the kids to colour the houses in the shades of their choice.

Create a Family Masterpiece

Have your children expressed interest in doing something different this year for Family Day? If this sounds like your situation, then Crock A Doodle Pottery is the place to go for a day of creative fun with the family. The studio will be open from 11 AM to 4 PM for drop in sessions with families, where you will be able to paint a masterpiece together on traditional pottery.
