From the City of Mississauga website
Monday, February 15 is Family Day. We know things feel a little different this year, but it’s important we continue to follow all health and safety measures in place while keeping to our household for the safety of the entire community.
To help make this year’s Family Day weekend memorable, we’re hosting a number of family-friendly activities to enjoy with your household and also sharing a few ways to safely enjoy the outdoors.
Stay active and creative
- Send out a Watercolour Valentine’s Day Card to your loved ones or save them in this cool DIY mailbox for the whole house to read and share.
- Take on the 28-day challenge and make it a goal to try one activity per day. Check it off once completed!
- Make simple crafts with beautiful results, like this paper heart chain or DIY snow globes.
- Use recycled materials around the house to make a creative ballet scrunchie or door hanger.
- Entertain your family with a puppet show! Make your own puppets.
- Play a friendly game of BINGO and download our template.
- Get your bake on! Try a new recipe or try one of ours.
- Stay active and enjoy the crisp, winter air with a free outdoor skate – registration required.
- Go for a walk with your household by discovering a new City trail or park.
