15 Ways to Enjoy Spring with Kids
The possibilities are endless when it comes to enjoying spring break with your kids.
The beach screams spring break with kids. They love to build sandcastles, play in the water, and ride the waves. It is the perfect low-cost getaway to just soak up the sun, relax, and have fun with the kids.
There are National Parks all over the country and they make great spring break destinations with kids. The kids love to explore, learn about nature, learn the stories of the past and so much more. There is nothing better than giving your kids the opportunity to visit the National Parks.
When people think about Spring break with kids they feel like it has to be some grand plan, but kids love things that are simple too! One of our kid’s favorite things is watching outdoor movies. We grab a sheet and project the movie onto it and watch them. They also love to gather around the fire pit and roast marshmallows and tell stories. Some of our best memories are in the backyard together as a family.
This spring break get the kids in the kitchen and cook and bake with them. Teach little kids the basics in the kitchen. They love to measure and dump and love to try and mix the cookie dough. If you have older kids have a “bake-off”. See who can make the best chocolate chip cookie or create the best dinner creation making chicken. The kids will have a blast during spring break and you will too!
Go to Spring Training
Spring break means the start of the baseball season, so there is nothing better than going during spring break with the kids to Spring Training. It is a great way to meet players, watch some games and practices and just relax.
Visit family/family friends
Do you have kids that are always asking to visit grandma and grandpa or visit old friends? Well, spring break is the perfect time to visit friends and family. We usually either meet them somewhere, or we drive or fly to see them. It is always fun getting together with friends and family.
Indoor water park
Sometimes it is too cold to be in the water outside, so go visit an indoor water park. These are usually heated and have plenty of slides and other entertainment activities.
Camping is the perfect way to give your family a change of scenery. Start searching for the perfect spring break camping location. Try searching the KOA website for a campground near you. Many campgrounds have reasonable fees and even offer nightly family activities.
Kids love road trips. With plenty of snacks, entertainment, and games kids will have so much fun in the car and even more fun once you get there. Choose a day trip destination if you want a short road trip. One of our kids’ favorite things to do is to point to close their eyes and point to someplace on the map and pick a spot that is near there to go visit. We have found so many unique and fun towns by doing this.
The possibilities are endless for fun simple day adventures during spring break with your kids. Try looking for a nearby local museum, farmers market, or even a nearby farm or field for picking fresh fruit or vegetables.
Bring the fun to your own home and let your kids enjoy a day of crafting. These days kids love making slime and can be entertained for hours playing with it. If you aren’t a slime fan simple crafts like making paper airplanes and painting rocks are also fun for kids.
Play Board Games
Kids are constantly begging to play board games, so have an electronic-free day and spend the day playing board games. Some fun games are Monopoly, Yahtzee, Scattergories, Apples to Apples, and more.
Visit a Children’s Museum
A Children’s Museum provides hours of indoor fun for kids of all ages. Many museums change out their stations and themes and have different events throughout the day. Be sure to grab a schedule on your way in so you don’t miss out on the fun activities that are there! Spring break with kids can give you a chance to check out a children’s museum near you or even a new one in the next city over!
Spring Break Camps
Kids want to stay busy during spring break so enroll them in spring break camps. There are so many different camps such as sports camps, cooking camps, sewing camps, babysitting training camps and more. Check your local area for local spring break camps.
It’s ok if your budget for spring break doesn’t include an extravagant vacation away. Look for a hotel nearby for a night or two and enjoy being out of the home and your kids will enjoy swimming in an indoor pool. Depending on where you are this guarantees a pool that isn’t freezing.
