Family Day 2015 Activities in Metro Vancouver


By Jon Azpiri, Global News

If you’re looking for something to do in Metro Vancouver on Family Day, there are a number of choices.

The YMCA is opening its doors for free at four centres. There are activities for all ages, everything from a dip in the pool to family Zumba and yoga classes.

If you’d rather spend time outdoors, the Sea-to-Sky Gondola has a 2-for-1 ticket deal tomorrow.

Robson Square Ice Rink is offering free skate rentals and hot chocolate will be on the house from noon to 4 p.m.

Science World is hosting the Science of Charitable Giving Exhibition with a suggested $25 family donation.

If you’re looking to hit the slopes, Whistler/Blackcomb is selling half-price lift tickets to B.C. residents on Family Day.

Stop a Bad Day in its Tracks



You know those days. The kids are cranky and pushing all of your buttons. When you feel this happening, try these ideas to regain control of the situation and salvage the day:


* Stop everything, sit on the floor and read some quiet books with your kids.


* Give your child a warm bath.


* Put on some soft, gentle music and encourage everyone to relax.


* Turn off the television and turn down the lights.


* Talk about how you all can change the mood in the house. By staying calm yourself, you can keep the situation from accelerating.
