March Break Activities
with Kind Human Club
Whether you’re jet-setting away this March Break or planning an extra special staycation, we’ve got you covered. We’ve compiled a list of our ‘must-do’ activities, all of which have one thing in common: connection. Feeling well connected to others contributes to mental health, meaning in life, and even physical well-being. This March Break, we challenge you to feel connected to yourself, to others, to nature, to creativity and beyond.
Spend the day at High Park:
High Park is Toronto's largest public park featuring a handful of hiking trails and one of Ontario’s largest outdoor playgrounds, located by the Duck Pond. Bonus: visit Toronto’s oldest animal attraction, High Park Zoo, open every day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Explore the beautiful Distillery District:
From boutiques to good eats, to art galleries and beautiful architecture, there's something for everyone at the Distillery District. And now, Après Ski Weekends! Roast marshmallows and sip hot chocolate (plus mulled wine and beer for the adults) around fire pits - the perfect weekend staycation that’ll make you feel like you’re hitting the slopes.
Spread kindness to those around you with our Kindness Cards:
The best way to feel good is to make someone else feel good. Our Kindness Cards (which are designed and printed locally in Ontario on paper made of post-consumer recycled fibers), are a simple, meaningful way to show appreciation, spread some love and make someone's day better. Grab your own package here (or create your own)!
Experience Ontario Place light show, Lumière: The Art of Light, together:
Ontario Place is currently hosting Lumière: The Art of Light (formerly Winter Light Exhibition). This free light exhibition allows visitors to experience art created by Ontario artists featuring innovation, light and discovery to celebrate the change of seasons from winter to spring. Lumière is open 7 nights a week and admission is free.
Throw a dance party:
The best way to feel good and instantly elevate your mood is to get up and get moving. That’s why we always say… when in doubt, dance it out! Grab your friends and family (or bust a move alone), crank those tunes and let loose! Need a little inspiration? Check out the mini mioche Spotify page for a few playlists curated by us.
Get in touch with your creative side at the AGO:
With a collection of more than 90000 works of art, the Art Gallery of Ontario is among the most distinguished art museums in North America. For March Break, the AGO is offering kid-focused programming that includes artmaking, family-friendly tours, a drop-in film screening in Jackman Hall and maker stations throughout the Gallery. Check out more information here.
Practice breathwork with your little one using the Othership App:
Othership is a Wellness Centre and guided breathwork app offering classes to boost mood, increase productivity, regulate your emotions, and learn the science-backed how + why of breathing mechanics. We teamed up with Othership last year to share a series of breathwork practices you can do at home with your little ones - watch them on the mini mioche Instagram page: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Start Journaling with your kiddos (and by yourself!):
Writing down our thoughts and feelings can help process and make sense of our emotions, which helps us better understand ourselves and our experiences. This practice is especially important when it comes to our little ones, who we want to help build a positive mindset through awareness and reflection (the power of writing things down is scientifically proven to build better connections within your brain). Check out this KHC blog post, from Kind Human Club member Jennifer Wu, Founder of Spark Journals, for tips on how to start a journal habit for kids.
