If you don’t have a vacation planned to keep you and your family occupied this spring break, you’re probably wondering what your kids are going to do for a whole week off of school. That’s why we’ve come up with this list of easy (and free) activities you can do with your kids to ensure your spring break is as fun and relaxing as it should be.
Springtime arts and crafts
Break out the art supplies and you can spend a whole afternoon making springtime decorations. It could be as simple as drawing bunnies and flowers on construction paper, or as elaborate as making flowers out of pipe cleaners and tissue paper. Let your imaginations run wild and you’ll get some festive decorations for your home while you’re at it.
Go to your local park
Why not use some of your time off to make use of your local park or playground? Check out the walking trails, play catch in a field, go to the nature center—the possibilities are endless! And why not bring some birdseed and feed the birds and ducks while you’re out?
Play at an indoor playground
Play N’ Learn’s Playground Superstores offers great options for your kids to play, even in the colder weather! Try our Pay for Play at our Columbia, MD location – each child gets two hours of play time, Monday – Friday, 10am-6pm. Come enjoy unlimited use of our showroom play area and let your kids release some of that spring break energy!
Design your own playground
You and your kids can do a great playground tour of your town and check out all the coolest features of each. Then, break out the paper and crayons so your kids can design their own fantasy playground. What would it include? A rope ladder? A climbing wall? Monkey bars?
Check out activities at your library
Odds are good that your local library will have programming during the day designed for all ages of children. The library is a great resource for free and educational activities, ranging from learning new games to doing science experiments. Your kids can pick out some books to borrow while they’re there.
Bake cookies or make a healthy snack
What better way to spend the afternoon than by making a fresh batch of cookies? Your kids can help measure, pour, and stir. Or, try out one of our recommended healthy snacks that are fun to make and delicious to eat!
Read books out loud
Snack time is also a great time for reading a book together. Have your kids choose a book they want to read and you can read it aloud to them while you snack, or even take turns and have your kids read different sections.
