Whistler has always been kid-friendly, but this March, the resort steps it up a notch with a special tribute to families. Everyone knows that spring break is about having fun and letting loose, so check out the March Family Month specials designed expressly for families heading to Whistler and looking for deals on fun.
You can give children just about anything to craft with and they will make a phenomenal item that most adults couldn’t come up with. Make an area in your house – a shelf, a closet or a cupboard – and slowly add items to it that are no longer used around the house; they will be there for that rainy or snowy day to pull out and start crafting with. If you do not have the crafty kind of mind that it seems many mothers have, it’s okay. Just take out a bunch of the items that you have collected and let the kids come up with the ideas.
