It’s hard to believe we’re on the uphill path towards spring. Even though the days are slowly getting longer, January and February are often the most difficult months to get through. Freezing temperatures, unpredictable weather and a lack of sunshine and fresh air take a toll on everyone’s psyche but can be most problematic for children. If your little ones have an excess of energy and you’re going stir crazy, grab your CAA card and hit up these frost-free family-friendly activities:

Strike Out

Lace up your bowling shoes for a night of good ole' fashioned family fun at Pla-More Lanes in Port Dalhousie or Fairview Lanes in St. Catharines. Members save 15% on regular-priced lane and shoe rentals for 5-pin bowling.

Jump for Joy

At SkyZone it’s actually okay to bounce off the walls! Play games, practice your acrobatics or take part in a fun fitness class. Being active has never been this much fun! Members can buy one 60-minute jump pass and get a second one for free.

Unreal Family Fun

Combine activity and technology in CTRL V's virtual reality playground. Take aim with archery, square off in the boxing ring or practice your 3-pointers on a virtual basketball court. Their multi-player games mean you can bring the whole gang for an afternoon of family fun. CAA Members save 20% on a 1-hour virtual reality session.

Dinner and Movie

Treat the kids to an afternoon or evening out. Dine at a family favourite like Harvey’s, Montana’s or Kelseys, where Members save 10% on their meal, then hit the movies to see the latest kid flick. Purchase tickets to Cineplex or Landmark Cinemas from a CAA Branch and save big!

The best part? CAA Members save 10%!
