Wand handling class and a potions workshop? Halloween is taking over the Botanical Gardens, blurring the boundaries between fantasy and reality with activities for kids of all ages. Get ready for sorcerers, how to master the power of a wand, plant-based potion-making and a play featuring Scaredy Squirrel—one of our favourite children’s books.
Montreal is a playground for kids of all ages—especially during the fall. The city is full of attractions for young children (and the young at heart), stellar museums and excellent places to eat that are easy on the budget. Every borough has its own family-forward fun—not to mention some incredibly gorgeous beaches and parks—with easy access via public transportation (5 year-olds and under ride for free!).
