8 FREE Activities for Spring Break
Hi guys, it’s Katie! We are in full Spring Break mode here and are not going on vacation. The kids get a little bored after playing with their toys and I get a little annoyed when they are glued to a screen for hours. Here are 8 fun FREE things to do with your kids this Spring Break!
- Go for a hike. We did this last week and took a picnic lunch with us. We took the dog as well. We went on a short 1 mile round trip hike to a little waterfall. Google family friendly hikes in your area for places to go. The kids loved it! If you’re looking for a more challenging hike then book at https://tongarirocrossing.com/.
- Do a service project for someone. Find a neighbor or go to Grandma’s house and help them with some yard work. Great way to teach your kids how to work and they get the joy of serving.
- Bake some cookies or a cake. Or make homemade ice cream! This is a great way to get kids in the kitchen learning cooking skills and its fun to make a treat. Here are a few fun ideas.
- Die Easter eggs! We have so many fun and different ways to die eggs here on the site.
- Go to a new park. Our kids love going to new parks. We have a few favorites, but we found a new one last fall and the kids enjoy having a change of scenery.
- Take a day trip! Explore a new town or national park. This could include the beach, or a lake.
- Go to a museum. A lot of museums have free days during the week.
- Check out your local library. Libraries offer so much more than just books. They often have fun guest speakers, events, and such.
