Family Day Activities 2013

Family Day…A day to put the craziness of life aside and enjoy good quality family time.  You can spend the day at home playing board games, baking together and reading stories or you can get out of the house and find something fun to do.  You can go Bowling, Skiing, Snowshoeing, Snow tubing, hiking, see a movie, or even just go for a walk.  It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you are all together!  We’ve got some great suggestions for you if you want to get out of the house.

Check out our Weekend Fun Guide for Winter Festivals that run all Family Day weekend, look at  your town’s website for local activities or contact your local Old Navy for Family Day Activities in store.
