March Break 2012: Learn with Your Whole Family!

Einstein or Scarecrow Brain Cupcakes?

How will you learn with your family during March Break 2012? Shhh... Here's a little secret we're letting you in on -  we get guests who attend a foodie or ghost walk at other times of the year, and then return with their whole family for March Break or any other holidays. By "whole family", I'm referring to their own parents plus their children, all in tow, for good old-fashioned quality tri-generational time-out filled with equal portion of food, food for thought, fun and a wee bit of physical activity called gentle walking that meets Dr. Oz's approval.

Here's something to mull over: learning happens in everything we do. If you decide to stay home half of March Break Week, learning still happens in everything we do. Yup. Whether you team up to sort laundry, draft a grocery list, or discover a new route to grandma, you are learning together. You could also learn with your family on interactive, theme walking tours... Imagine the fun and challenge in learning Dim Sum chopsticks and tea pouring etiquette for grandparents and the kids along one of our Second Chinatown Foodie Walks;  learning to read a Toronto map circa 1842 on the hunt for clues that would lead us to sites connected with Charles Dickens along In The Footsteps of Charles Dickens: Toronto 1842 Walk; discover how to research a haunted site for one of the four ghost walks.  Learning together, whether it's tri-generational or bi-generational, is a memorable, experiential and fun journey for all. Don't forget to bring along your digital cameras (and spare batteries!).  Have a glance at which repertoire of walks will tickle your family's fancy...
