Fun At-Home Ideas for April Break 2021: Science & Technology

Looking for at-home things to do with your kids during March Break, in April, this year?

From creative arts and crafts to nature appreciation, science-for-fun and celebrating our favourite sports, we’ve rounded up a list of activities from Ontario’s museums, galleries and attractions.

March Break, the much-anticipated, week-long holiday from school for kids and families in Ontario, has been rescheduled to the week of April 12-16. As Ontario transitions to different zones of public health measures, the best way to stay safe and prevent the spread of the virus continues to be staying home and limiting contact with others, as well as frequent hand washing and wearing a mask in public.

Here are some fun experiments, games and challenges you can do at home during April Break 2021.

Do-It-Yourself Science Fun from the Ontario Science Centre
Create a bottle garden, make your own play dough or use science to bake ice cream in your oven.

Games and Apps at the Royal Ontario Museum
Download app-based gallery games and quests from different ages. Available on the Apple App Store or Google Play.
