Spring Break is almost right around the corner. If you’re like me, it doesn’t feel like it at all. It seems to be creeping up on you. Even if you are not one of those with actual vacation plans, you can still do something fun. You don’t have to have a bunch of money saved up either. There are more than a few fun things you can do in your own town.
If your kids are smaller, take them to a children’s musem. They tend to have membership so you pay less. These are great attractions to take the kiddos to since the more often you go, the more you save. All you need to do is bring snacks if outside food is allowed.
If you’re in an area that will have decent weather take your whole family to the zoo. The zoo is really great for the entire family. Even a lot of teenagers get a kick out of the animals on some leve. They appreciate the animals on a ‘thinking they’re cute’ level and have a different appreciation for them. Your highschooler may feel different, but the on through middle school crowd still seems to enjoy the animals.
Grab some badmitten and head to the park. You can even do this with young grade schoolers. Even if they can’t quite hit the birdie, they’ll still enjoy trying.
Kickball is a really fun way to get some exercise and have major fun doing it. It’s great for all ages. It’s also a cheat way to get your own exercise while getting the kids out and getting their energy out at the same time.
Bring the bikes to your local playground or go for a bike ride on a nearby bike path. You’ll all get a lot of great exercise and you’ll probably remember how much fun it is to ride a bike. Little ones can ride in the back on a baby sit securely attached to parents and they LOVE this!
These are just a few of many activities you can do with the kids over spring break if you don’t really have any plans.
