What To Do This Spring Break

Updated: Apr 10

As the flowers bloom and the weather warms up, spring break presents a fantastic opportunity for quality family time. There are plenty of free or affordable activities to keep your kids engaged, whether at home or in the Fraser Valley community. With a bit of planning and creativity, you can turn this break into an unforgettable experience for everyone.



1. Outdoor Adventures: Take advantage of the beautiful weather by spending time outdoors. Just 20 minutes in nature can work wonders for reducing stress and increasing happiness. Explore your local regional parks for special activities like beaver spotting at Burnaby Lake or enchanted forest walks at Aldergrove Regional Park. Check out Metro Vancouver's events calendar for more details.


2. Play Abby: Listed at #2 on KidsOutAndAbout.com, in 2023, Play Abby is the spot to be! Theres loads to do and fun for all ages. Your kids can run, climb, slide and play for hours. Little ones can play freely and safely on the toddler playground and older kids can run out all their energy in the huge laster tag playground. Need a break from the running around? No problem! We've got board games, arcade machines, plenty of tables, and massage chairs for the adults to take a much needed break!


3. Geocaching: This activity is perfect for both kids and adults alike! Geocaching is like a high-tech treasure hunt where you use GPS coordinates to find hidden containers, or "geocaches," outdoors. When you find the geocache you might discover inside the container a logbook to sign your name and the date you found it. Sometimes, there are small toys or trinkets inside. But, if you take something from the geocache, you should leave something in its place for the next person to find. Download a geocaching app on your smartphone and start hunting for treasures in your area. Visit Geocaching.com to learn more and start your adventure.


4. Storytime at the Library: Looking for an easy morning destination? Head to your local library for interactive storytime sessions. These sessions feature engaging stories, songs, and rhymes that foster a love for reading and provide an opportunity for social interaction with other children. Many libraries also host events beyond storytime, catering to various age groups. Check out Fraser Valley Regional Library's events and Surrey Libraries events for their spring break schedules.



5. Creative Gardening: Transform your spring break into a green-thumb adventure by creating a mini garden with your children. Start by decorating small pots or containers with paint, stickers, or markers to add a personal touch. Consider planting bee-friendly plants like lavender or sunflowers to attract pollinators and support local bee populations. Or for a fun and educational experience, try growing your own groceries from vegetable scraps. It's a sustainable way to save money and reduce food waste while teaching valuable lessons about nature. Start with easy plants like celery or green onions by placing the ends in water and watching them grow. Your children will enjoy seeing their plants thrive and harvesting fresh produce for meals.


Make the most of your Spring Break with your family – let the adventures begin!
