With warmer weather making an appearance, we know that the Victoria Day weekend is just around the corner! Whether you’re spending the long weekend in the city, or heading to the cottage, you want to make sure you keep your children busy with enjoyable, learning activities that will keep their minds and bodies busy throughout the weekend. We know that it is just as important to keep our students learning outside of the classroom, as it is inside the classroom. Below we have put together a list of 5 different activities for your children to enjoy in the city or at the cottage this Victoria Day weekend!
