Get a Roof


It’s summer, so the living is easy and the days are beautiful…most of the time.
Then there are the long days when it rains, or the heat is simply unbearable, and you need a kid-friendly escape. Here are some of our top picks for indoor summer activities the whole family can enjoy.

If free is your thing, and your kids love story time (who doesn’t?), take advantage of the TD Summer Reading Program at the Ottawa Public Library. There are programs for all ages on different days of the week, including safari- and jungle-themed reading and storytelling, Lego events, break-dancing and ‘jungle jiving’.

It’s no secret that Chapters stores make fabulous stomping grounds for kids who like to run amok in aisles lined with books—and sustenance is always conveniently available at the attached Starbucks, where you can get a kids’ hot chocolate for about a dollar. If independent is more your style, check out Kaleidoscope Kids’ Books’ new digs, where kids are always welcome to kick back and explore the offerings. Even better, all purchases are 15% off until August 31.
