March break has begun for children and parents are anxious to find something that will entertain their kids over the break. Instead of sitting at home watching TV, parents could bring them out to the Oshawa Public Library McLaughlin Branch or the Robert McLaughlin Gallery located off of Centre Street in downtown Oshawa.
Both the library and the gallery are offering events for kids and teens.
There will be many different events going on this week for March Break at the library including a reptile zoo, video and board games, crafts, story time and a performance by Craig Douglas the comic juggler.
There will also be events for teenagers ages 12 to 18, including a Hunger Games themed event on March 10 at 2 p.m. and a commercial making contest on March 15 at 2 p.m.
The RMG will be running their March Break Art Camp next week, where kids can create floor murals, life size portraits and dioramas.
Lizette Storey from the RMG and Alison McCullough a children’s librarian from the Oshawa Public Library explains in the video what is to be expected during March break.
