If staying home is what you will be doing, here are some fun activites you can do with the kids.
We have received tons of beautiful white snow lately. It’s a great time to do some at home sugaring off with some Taffy or Tire in the snow.
-Grab a plastic container- a large rectangular one is best
-Boil maple syrup. It needs to be boiled on high for a good 20mins.
-Pack your container with fresh white snow. Leave it outside to stay frozen
-Test your syrup on the snow by using a laddle and pouring a line. If it’s too thin, boil it longer.
-Grab a bunch of popsicle sticks and if you have none you can use a spoon
-Once the syrup is at the perfect consistency, you can start pouring a bunch of lines to eat and enjoy
To get the full experience, order the full meal from one of our amazing sugar shacks by checking out Ma Cabane for all the options.

Build a fort
There is nothing more fun than building a living room fort as a child. Grabbing all the blankets and sheets around the house . Kids are so creative and have the best time making it the biggest one of all time. This activity can keep them busy for a hour or 2. It allows creativity and the hope that siblings will work together to build the best fort ever.
