Spring Break ideas for children
Sunrise Preschools
Get Outside/Take Advantage of Valley Weather
-Go beyond the monkey bars and the hiking trails. Create a scavenger hunt, like finding something that begins with each letter of the alphabet. The person who collects the most - or all 26! - wins. This is a great way to keep the kids active rather than in front of the TV or playing video games.
- You could volunteer with the Parks and Recreation Department working to help keep the parks clean and have a celebratory picnic once you've finished your hard work. As a family you could volunteer at the local humane society and spend a few hours washing and walking dogs. Your kids will likely have a ball. Terrific way to create a sense of community spirit. And it doesn't cost anything!
Arts and Crafts
- Have the kids pick a theme and create a diarrama. Since crafting can get expensive, encourage savings by making a scavenger hunt around the house - to find items for the project - part of the game.
Have a dance party
-Choose a playlist that appeals to your music taste and theirs, so that everyone has songs they adore. Want to make it even more fun? Invite a few of your kid's friends over, lay out some snacks and have a blast.
Start a Garden
-Spring break is a great time to start thinking about and planning your garden. Have the kids help by plotting this year's garden on paper, making lists of supplies you need (compost, mulch, seeds, plants, etc.). Then, get out there and start digging!
Have an art show
Give your kids all the supplies they need to make collages, paintings or sculptures and set them to work. At the end of the week, invite friends and family over to view their creations.
Do a fantasy redecorating
Kids bored of their rooms? Pick up a sheet of poster board for each kid and hand them catalogs and magazines to leaf through. Have them create a storyboard of what their ideal bedroom would look like with photos. Great for getting the imagination flowing!
