5 Fun Things to Do With Toddlers in Ontario

Are you planning a family vacation and looking for the best places to visit with toddlers in Ontario, Canada? As a young family, you will be delighted to discover plenty of fun, toddler-friendly attractions and activities to explore in the region. 

Discover our top five picks for the best things to do with toddlers in Ontario. 

1. Watch the Animals at Toronto Zoo

As the largest zoo in Toronto, animal lovers must visit Toronto Zoo. Whether your toddler loves ferocious lions, colorful frogs or curious monkeys, you can find them at Toronto Zoo. Your toddler will also enjoy exploring the zoo's many exhibits, activities and attractions, including the Conservation Carousel, Zoomobile and Splash Island.

2. Navigate the Mazes at Cricklewood Farm and Corn Maze

Located 10 minutes from Brighton / 401 KOA Holiday is Cricklewood Farm and Corn Maze — a fun farm with two exciting corn mazes and a play area. While the farm is known for its sprawling, 8-acre cornfield that transforms into a 7-acre corn maze with puzzles and games, it also features a 1-acre mini maze perfect for little ones. 

After navigating the corn maze, your toddler can enjoy the farm's playground, soft play area and straw mountain. 

3. Discover Life Down Under at Ripley's Aquarium

Ripley's Aquarium of Canada is a must-visit for young children fascinated by aquatic wildlife and submarines. Start your visit at the Discovery Centre — where youngsters can get their hands wet, interact with the animals and explore the centre's exhibits and pop-up habitats. 

However, if you prefer to stay dry, you can also enjoy a simulation of a deep-sea dive within an interactive submarine. The aquarium also offers Dive Shows and Aquarist Talks that educate your toddler about the ocean's wonders.

4. Pet and Feed Farm Animals at Forsythe Family Farms

While your little one might not be able to feed the animals at the Toronto Zoo, toddlers enjoy petting and feeding the friendly farm animals at Forsythe Family Farms in Uxbridge, Ontario. Many types of farm animals call Forsythe Family Farms home, including pigs, sheep, goats and cuddly bunnies.

This family-friendly farm boasts several fun things to do with babies and toddlers, including a Barnyard Adventure Playground, trains, tractors and mazes. If you visit on the weekend, your toddler can enjoy a wagon ride or snuggle bunnies at the small animal cuddle station.

5. Explore Indian River Reptile and Dinosaur Park

If your toddler loves reptiles and dinosaurs, you must visit Canada's only Dinosaur Park — Indian River Reptile and Dinosaur Park. Home to hundreds of reptiles and thousands of dinosaur fossils, reptile and dinosaur enthusiasts will get a kick out of the park's many activities, including the Dinosaur Walk-Thru, Croc-Walk and Nature Walk.

The park's Dinosaur Walk-Thru features exciting life-sized replicas of dinosaurs like Scotty, the largest Tyrannosaurus Rex discovered in Canada. However, if crocodiles excite your toddler, try out the park's Croc-Walk. They might spot an alligator, caiman or crocodile while walking through the sanctuary.
