Everything Easter at Fort York

On April 4th, Fort York opens its doors to a giant Easter Egg hunt for the first time. Kids can hunt for eggs and win prizes they can also take part in games and races. They can visit with the Easter bunny and after recreate him with some holiday-themed crafts. Snacks and refreshments will be available as well so the young ones can keep their energy up. There will be a Raffle prize draw with prizes suitable for the whole family. Proceeds from the event will go to the Ronald McDonald House Charity and the George Brown College Foundation. 190 Fort York Blvd

Easter Brunch at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen

Whether it’s tradition for you or you’re looking to create a new one, getting the family together for a delicious and satisfying meal on the Easter weekend is a classic everyone is sure to enjoy. This Liberty Village favourite is ideal for a very Easter brunch (scrambled eggs, omelet, eggs benedict) or one of their famous scones. The food and ambience makes for a perfect late morning meal. 85 Hanna Ave

DigiPlaySpace at the TIFF Bell Lightbox

An interactive installation based around learning-centric games, mobile apps, creative tools and production activities, DigiPlaySpace is a fantastic adventure to take the kids on. Its focus is to spread media and teach literacy while enjoying the activities at hand. So if you want your kids to have some educational time while they’re out of school (without them realizing that they’re learning), this is your best bet. 350 King St W.

Hold an Easter-themed DIY affair in your own home

How do carrot croquettes sound? Or how about little peeps? (Not the marshmallow kind—these are made from eggs). The whole family can cook these up together and then play a game of checkers with DIY pieces that look like bunnies and chicks. Winner gets to eat the last chocolate egg.
