Celebrate March Break in Durham Region with Friendly Fables

Published 8 months ago by Alexis Alexander

Hello again, Friendly Fablers! March is officially here and that means two very important things:

  1. Spring is FINALLY just around the corner!
  2. Parents everywhere are getting ready for March Break.

Wait, did you hear those screams just now? It’s mostly the cheers of excited children across Canada, but also a few panicked cries from parents. After all, someone has to keep those kids busy for a full week...IN WINTER!

We’re hoping for warmer temperatures and some great later winter hiking opportunities, but you’ll also want some indoor activities to keep the kids busy. While the usual crafts, movies and science projects at home will keep them occupied for a few hours, you’ll definitely be wanting to get out of the house. Never fear - we’ve got you covered. If you’re in Durham Region, come see us for one (or all!) of these great, FREE March Break events!

Thursday, March 14th: Chapters Ajax, 11am - 12pm

Thursday, March 14th: Indigo Oshawa Centre, 2pm - 3pm

Friday, March 15th: Canadian Tire Ajax, 10am - 11am

Each of these events will feature some engaging, interactive stories from the Friendly Fables library and be a lot of fun. Our Canadian Tire event has a fun theme involving The Little Gnome and there will be book signing opportunities after each reading. Meet up with a friend, get some errands done while you’re out and about, and take a break while we entertain your little ones for an hour! (We ask that parents stay and watch their children during each reading, but you’ll definitely be able to relax a bit while they enjoy the performance.)

Our fingers are crossed for sunshine and lots of outdoor play, but when it’s time for something new, think of us - we can’t wait to see your family at Chapters, Indigo and Canadian Tire next week! Mark your calendars now and please, share this post with any friends who might want to join in!
