March Break is right around the corner in Mississauga, and while the kids rejoice, parents might be wondering where to take their ecstatic children next week for some excitement and enlightenment.

Whether it's active leisure, fun learning opportunities or getting your kids immersed in Canadian Heritage, Mississauga has many family-friendly options for you this March Break.
5. Skate on the Square
Though this week is showing some lovely warm March temperatures, some ice-skating fans may be hoping for weather a little more on the chilly side next week. Weather permitting, the Celebration Square ice rink will be open to March Breakers for some of the final skate times this winter. For more information about skate times, you can visit this link. Note that the Square skating hours are 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., so you'll have all day to enjoy the great outdoors.
4) Maple Magic at the Bradley Museum
Who doesn't love maple syrup? This March Break, the kids will love it even more when they learn how to tap a tree and follow the sap lines to the Bradley House kitchen where they can feast their eyes and tummies or magical maple treats. There's no better way to soak up some Canadian heritage than by feasting on and learning about our traditional maple syrup, and the Bradley Museum has March Break drop-in fun all week long!

3) The Museums of Mississauga
Why not take the kids to soak in some culture at an exhibition at one of the Museums of Mississauga? You and your kids can check out the thought-provoking Black Sauga Voices exhibit at Celebration Square, the inspirational iAM exhibit at the Bradley House and more. You can also check out Films about Humans, Plants and Animals from the National Film Board at the Benares Historic House (this event is being held in partnership with Studio 89). You can also visit the Bradley Museum, Benares House and Leslie Log Cabin if you want to enjoy some of the city's historical structures.
2) Check out the New Hobby and Toy Store
If you want to keep your kids busy at home, you might get to enjoy some extra quiet time if you take your kids to the new Heartland Town Centre area Hobby and Toy store. Hobby and Toy Central is hosting its grand opening this Saturday (March 11) and it’ll offer residents a unique option when it comes to March Break shopping. The store offers products for any age group, boasting products for babies, children, teens and adults. If you’re looking to buy a model car to assemble (how very vintage of you), you can find what you’re looking for here. You can also find puzzles, soldering tool kits, board games and more.
1) Free Arcade at Erin mills Town Centre
Since most of us are glued to electronic devices at home, it's nice to be reminded of a time when you had to go to the more innovative devices because they couldn't come to you. This March Break, Erin Mills Town Centre is hosting a free March Break Arcade that'll offer a variety of arcade games to kids who came of age in the time of household consoles. The arcade will take shape in EMTC's centre court and attendees can expect a free $5 food court gift card (for the first 50 families each day), free treats and giveaways and the opportunity to win an $100 EMTC gift card.
