Banish Boredom! What to Do During Spring Break in Edmonton

Ahh, Spring Break in Edmonton! Some years we are still in the clutches of winter, often there is a lot of mud, sometimes it actually, almost feels like spring! Whatever it is doing outside, you need to keep your kiddos busy, and we have just the ticket to keep you going until school starts again!

Fun and Games

Have you been to the Rec Room in South Edmonton Common? An afternoon playdate is more family friendly than you might think a happening hot spot would be. Here is 5 Things to Try at the Rec Room!

Free Fun with EPL

Edmonton Public Libraries have 174 events planned for spring break. That’s right, 174! Visit any location and you will find something going on, from storytime and puppet shows to science and technology fun in the Makerspace, there is something for every interest!

Live the Game

Angry Birds is one of those games that you can spend hours playing on your phone. A better use of your time is to get to the Angry Birds Universe exhibit at the TELUS World of Science Edmonton, and put yourself in the game!
