Montreal Activities for Kids: March 2020
Spring break is here! The start of a new month that’s the perfect opportunity to disconnect and spend some time with the kids while they’re off from school. Whether you’re heading off on a trip, taking a stay-cation or just enjoying the days of no homework, there are so many Montreal activities for kids this month. I’ve front-loaded this one with lots of fun (almost free) things to do during the break.
PS: I wrote an article a few years ago with many spring break activities that still apply here.
