10 Ways to Have Fun at Home During Spring Break!

The last 2 weeks have been crazy. From trying to find balance with at home school work, electronic time and family time we need the upcoming break. But I’ve had to get creative with how we are going to spend our spring break. We’ve been doodling, baking in the kitchen and lots more during these times at home that I still want to find a way to make spring break different and memorable. So here are our ideas of how we’ll be spending spring break this year, at home!

  1. Create a Memory “Book” Together – all the pictures, videos and even art projects we’ve done through the years are digital. So we’re going to take those memories and put them on disc so the kids can watch them whenever they want.
  2. Backyard Camping – I’m hoping for some warmer weather in which we can pull out the tent and set it up in the backyard. We’ll grill up some food and even roast marshmallows all while having fun in our how backyard.
  3. Bedroom Makeover – my girls’ room has needed a little bit of a face lift so we’re going to tackle their room and make it fun together. From coming up with ideas of things to hang up, to cleaning out the closet, it will be perfect for when school starts back up.
  4. Read a thon – while spring break is just that, a break, I still want my kids keeping up on the things they’ve learned so we’ll be hosting a read a ton! We might invite neighbors over but we’ll have lots of treats and goodies they can enjoy while throwing their pillow on the floor and diving into a good book.
  5. House of Cards – all that’s needed is a pack of playing cards. Then we’ll see how high each person can build a tower.
  6. Rock Painting – if you’ve seen the facebook group 801 Rocks, you know creating some fun rocks for strangers to find is a great way to put a smile on their face! We’re going to paint some rocks and then “hide” them in places around the city where others might see them.
  7. Domino Run – how fancy can you make your domino run? Start simple with a start line and expand from there by creating different shapes, adding other objects and so much more.
  8. Scavenger Hunt – I think we’ll hit the trails and go on a nature scavenger hunt. Starting with letter A and working our way through the alphabet seeing how many different things we can find.
  9. Paper Airplanes – There’s tons of different paper airplanes you can make. Then take them out to fly and see if you can get them to lane on a landing strip, fly through a hula hoop and so much more.
  10. Movie Marathon – we don’t tend to watch much tv and definitely not all day long so why not make an except over spring break? I was thinking we could watch all the Harry Potter Movies, or maybe we’ll find another fun series to watch all day. We might even make a fort and watch from inside.
