Family Day is a unique holiday to Canadians. It started in Ontario when a Liberal premier determined we needed a break in February. So Family Day became a long weekend in February in several provinces and frankly it couldn’t come at a better time. We often go skiing for Family Day. There are some really awesome places to do that in Ontario.
A few weeks ago I began planning for Family Day here and this year I have a Family Day word scramble to share as well as a batch of Family Day activities that are free for you to give to your family.
Things to Do Family Day
What’s Family Day without a few fun activities for the kids? I’ll tell you what it is: just any other day of course. Family Day is one of my new favourite holidays because it comes in February and frankly everyone in Ontario needs a break by February. Also it’s a great chance to celebrate family. Some of you are regular readers here and you’ve already seen a host of Family Day activities and printables that I have published here. Anyways, here’s one more – just for you.
Family Day, for those who don’t know, is a holiday in Ontario and Alberta in mid February. We get the day off from school and from some jobs. I won’t be off that day because work beckons but I will be taking some time to go skating or swimming or just play games with the kids. It’s a lovely long weekend that starts with Valentine’s Day often and ends with Family Day. I’m pretty stoked about that. Just wishing that Family Day was a day I could celebrate by flying to Mexico. Wouldn’t that be worth celebrating?
Thrifty Mommas Tips Printables
Anyways, these printables, as some of you know, can be downloaded one of two ways: You can right click and save to the computer and then print them out. Or you can click through the link below which is a PDF version of the same image. The PDF is typically bigger, and much clearer.
Have a great Family Day! Hope you enjoy this Family Day Word Scramble.
