Beat any boredom over spring break with some fun and creative activities. With just a little planning, you can keep kids engaged and even work in a little education. Plus, many activities can actually be enjoyed from the comfort of home.

Here are a few spring break activities that are great for kids.

Blow Bubbles

The sunshine and warm weather is back, so break out the bubbles. Point out to your kids how the light can make those bubbles look like magical rainbow-colored spheres.

Enjoy Nature Activities

Now that you can actually go outside without having to wear a snowsuit, enjoy some of the new life sprouting around you. Play games outside, go on a treasure hunt, or camp in the backyard. Learn about the new plants that are sprouting with your kids, and take note of the animals returning to the landscape.

Read Outdoors

Plan an afternoon reading picnic during spring break. Spread a blanket in the grass, and take turns reading to each other. Flip through books on your own. Or make up your own stories. What matters most is the quality time you spend showing your kids the importance of sitting down with a good book.
