Kindertown Family Guide: February


So far, our February has been filled with ice, snow and cold. In what seems like the first time ever, we even got two ‘ice’ days in a row, and could be in store for a few more this week! Being cooped up all day usually means a serious case of ‘cabin fever’, so to help you out, we’ve put together a list of events around #HamOnt that you and the family can explore once you manage to get out of the house and into the cold!
