Toronto-centric quickie giveaway alert. See bottom of the post for details.
There is SO MUCH to do during March Break wherever you live. Toronto’s no exception. Here, these guys do event listings so much better than I would.
Yesterday I took the girls to check out the TIFF Kids digiPlaySpace at the TIFF Bell Lightbox and it was pretty cool, so I wanted to give a special shout out. I really should have taken Colum out of school for the afternoon too because it would have been right up his alley.
It’s a high-tech interactive playground, essentially, for kids ages 3 and up. (Grown ups will have fun playing too.) We got to watch ourselves control the weather with our bodies on a giant screen, chase virtual bugs around, ride a giant wild boar via green screen technology and lots more.
The digiPlaySpace is open for six weeks from March Break to the end of the TIFF Kids International Film Festival. It’s the perfect activity for your bigger kids who really don’t need to do the dinosaurs at the ROM for the 10th year in a row. (Not that I don’t love the ROM!) Here, check out the one minute trailer:
If hanging out at TIFF puts you in the mood to watch some movies, walk up to the Queen streetcar and head over to The Beach Cinemas for $5 kids movies every morning all week long. There will also be face-painting, character appearances, a charity cupcake sale and lunch specials at Boston Pizza.
Quickie giveaway! You can win 4 tickets to any March Break Movie Morning showing and a family-friendly DVD prize pack. Just check out the line up and tell me which movie you want to see the most in the comments and I’ll draw a name on Monday, March 11 at 10am. Liking the Beach Cinema’s Facebook page isn’t necessary to enter but it is a good way to keep in the loop about future specials. GTA only, duh.
