Montreal April 2019: 9 Things to do with Kids this Month
Oh, hello April. You’ve brought your showers and the snow is finally beginning to melt. That means a month of sugaring off, spring cleaning and getting out of hibernation mode. I’ve rounded up my top things to do with the kids in Montreal April 2019.
Head out for a Saturday morning at the theatre with two kid-friendly presentations this month at the Centaur. On April 6th, Lola and the Smallest Circus puts a clown centre stage with lots of audience participation required. On April 27th, Scribouillis tells the tale of a puppet who draws stories that come to life.
Centaur Theatre, 10:30am, $10/adults, $8/children
You don’t have to leave the city to get the cabane à sucre experience. The Botanical Gardens will be hosting a weekend sugar shack (Fridays-Sundays, plus Monday April 22) at its restaurant. All of the classics will be on the menu, from pea soup to hash browns. If you’re looking for a vegetarian sugar shack experience check out my blog post here.
