Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Colborne Lodge (Toronto)

Family Tested

Easter traditions

Colborne Lodge was built in 1837 and still contains many of the original artefacts. My favourite time of the year to visit it is around Easter time, when they offer the Easter Traditions activities on a few consecutive weekends. The event includes a tour of the house, egg dyeing in the historic kitchen, and a game to spot hidden eggs around the house. On the Sunday one week before Easter, they usually offer the Spring Egg Fun Day. The event varies from one year to the next, depending on the volunteers involved. You can always count on egg dyeing in the lodge's kitchen (for a small extra fee), and chocolate egg hunts divided by age group in and around the Children's Garden by the lodge.
