March Break Watch: Looking for things to do with the kids this week?
Yes. IKEA. Believe it or not, IKEA in Burlington is hosting March Break activities all this week.
So, not only can the kids have fun beyond just the IKEA play area & ball pit doing fun things like crafts & interactive events, (like Mad Science) but you can buy that piece of furniture you’ve been eyeing in the new IKEA catalog.
And… as an added bonus you can enlist the kids to help put it all together once you get home! Ya, I know that doesn’t work – all that ends up happening is you end up with a handful of missing parts. But hey, you can always take them back for more IKEA fun while you try and get the missing parts replaced.
Oh, and yes I realize March Break is well underway. If I had known about this, I would have posted something sooner. Someone ought to say something …. IKEA…. ahem. Maybe they did – but I didn’t get an email. Just Saying.
Anyhoo, IKEA’s March Break events are now live in their Ontario locations. Our closest location is IKEA Burlington. So here is the line up of kid and family friendly activities that your kids can enjoy this week:
- March 16: KidsGoGreen (10 AM – 12 PM); Mad Science (12 PM – 2 PM)
- March 17: Face Painting (10 AM – 12 PM); KidsGoGreen (12 PM – 2 PM)

** Activities are for children 12 years old and under. Parental supervision is required.
Since spots are limited & on a first come first served basis, you’ll want to head there early to ensure your child gets to participate. Maybe breakfast or lunch in the IKEA restaurant?
