When the kids are out of school for spring break, it is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time together as a family. Instead of staying home with the kids in front of the TV all day, consider fun outings that will build memories to last a lifetime!
Bake Treats Together
Kids love the idea of pulling out the cookie cutters to make fun cookies. Whether your family enjoys sugar cookies or zucchini muffins, the kids can help by measuring the ingredients and preparing the baking sheets for the oven.
Pull out the Easter-themed cookie cutters and use different colors of frosting and sprinkles to make seasonal cookies.
Enjoy a Family Vacation
Since the kids are out of school, it is the perfect time to skip town and enjoy a vacation away from home. Disneyworld is a great kid-focused trip, or you could head to the beach to play in the waves. Look for cheap local flights, or load everyone in the car for a fun road trip adventure.
Plant a Garden
Even if you don’t love to garden, it can be fun to grow a few tomato plants in the backyard. If you don’t have a dedicated garden space in your yard, go to your local home improvement store to buy some large pots and tomato plants. Don’t forget to buy the soil to go in the pots!
This activity is an opportunity to teach the kids about the local nursery and how plants grow and produce food.
Go on a Picnic
When the weather is warm, then it means that you need to enjoy the sun! Pack some sandwiches and head to the park with a big blanket. Everyone, including the family dog, can come along to spend time at the park eating and enjoying the playground.
If you don’t have time to go anywhere, you might switch things up by eating in the backyard. Or, consider grabbing a deli sandwich on the way instead of taking the time to prepare the meals.
Take the kids to a craft store and let them pick out the items that spark their creativity. Paint, pipe cleaners, colored paper, and glitter can provide the tools that kids need to spark their imagination to create something new. This creativity process is important for mental growth and learning.
Consider family members who might need a “Get Well Soon” card or one of the neighbors that is having a birthday. These crafts can be a great gift to use as a service project for someone nearby.
