Mamas, tomorrow is a PE Day. That makes for a long weekend of activity planning with the kids. But don’t worry! We’ve put together a list of activities that can help keep the kids busy. Here are a few of our favourite things to do with the kids.
Downtown Windsor Farmers Market
The Downtown Windsor Farmers Market always has great activities and crafts for the little ones. This week they will have local musician Theodore Hogan to add some great vibes.The market takes place Saturday from 8am-1pm on Pelissier in downtown Windsor.
The Art Lab
We love The Art Lab. Every Sunday from 10am-1pm they have an open session where you can take the kids and let them explore their creative side. They have a splatter paint room where you can basically just throw paint on the walls. It’s awesome. Owner, Samantha, always comes up with new activities each week so it never gets dull and keeps everyone engaged.
Festival of Hawks
One of my favourite festivals. The Festival of Hawks is a great event to get out into the county, meander through Holiday Beach Conservation Area and learn about the bird migration passing through the region. There’s always exhibits and vendors on hand and this year we even crossed off a bucket list item: we got to hold a hawk!
Open Streets Windsor
Open Streets Windsor is 8km pf car-free space connecting communities through healthy recreation, creative expression, alternative forms of transportation and opportunities for local businesses…and it’s awesome. There is a ton activities happening along the route, so make sure to check out the list of activities.
Doors Open Windsor
This is for those budding local historians. Doors Open Windsor happens on Saturday and Sunday and they have over 30 heritage buildings that will be open to the public. A few sites that might interest the kids include:
