Every February, we get the the chance to spend some much needed time with our families. As the years go by, sometimes the ability to be together lessens; as hectic work or school schedules and relationships take over. Family Day is an important day to enjoy the little moments and simple activities together: sharing a meal, engaging in conversation, participating in fun exciting games, or embracing new challenges around the house. These all have an enormous impact on both children and families, as they help build a stronger community and develop a sense of identity.
We live in a very diverse and multicultural country, which is reflective in our daily habits or cultural activities. There are many different ways to enjoy Family Day: some families might prefer spending the day in the coziness of their own home, while others would rather take advantage of the outdoors. Whatever the choice, take advantage of spending the long weekend together with family-friendly fun!

We’ve made it easier to find some great ideas and activities you can do together – and on budget!
