Are you planning a family vacation to Whistler, British Columbia in Canada? Then check out the list of great things to do with the kids below. In this way, you can plan an itinerary that everyone will enjoy, and you can all make memories to last a lifetime.

Skiing and Other Winter Sports

Winter is the perfect season to visit Whistler with your entire family, as there is a host of fun outdoor activities that you can all participate in. These include different types of skiing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sleigh riding, and more. And if you book your stay at a place like Whistler Premier, you can rest assured that you will gain easy and quick access to all of the outdoor areas where you can let loose in the snow.

Indoor Activities

For those days when the weather is not cooperating and you can’t enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Whistler, there are also plenty of great things that you can do with the family indoors. There are indoor pools to swim in, as well as indoor ice skating to enjoy. You can even have fun at an indoor rock climbing facility, or you can play a few games at the indoor tennis courts.

Summertime Outdoor Fun

Although Whistler is a really popular destination for families who want to plan a getaway during the winter, there is also plenty to do there during the summer. Outdoor activities are particularly popular, as they allow you to enjoy the spectacular scenery throughout Whistler, so head outside to go biking, hiking, and camping. You can visit a variety of lakes, parks, and beaches, too, so there is something different that you can do every day during your stay.

Family Adventure Zone

The Family Adventure Zone is located at the base of the beautiful Blackcomb Mountain, and it is a great place to take the kids during a summer getaway, as there are plenty of fun things to do there. Activities include go-carts, a bungy trampoline, large slides, a bouncy castle, mini golf, and much more. Kids of all ages will find plenty to do there, and you will have a great time snapping photos of your children having a blast.

The Peak 2 Peak 360 Experience

Get yourself off the ground and up into the air by visiting the Peak 2 Peak 360 Experience. You will ride in a gondola that will provide you with incredible 360° views of everything that Whistler Village has to offer, from glaciers and lakes to forests and mountains. Consider booking the unique glass-bottom gondola to get even better views, and be sure to bring your camera because you will want to document the beauty that you see.
Whistler is definitely a fantastic vacation destination for families with children of all ages, as there are so many interesting and entertaining things to do. Plan ahead so you can ensure that you will have enough time scheduled for the many activities that you will be able to enjoy as a group.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
