Plan events to keep the kids happy at home.
Spring break conjures up images of beach or mountain vacations. But why not stay home and make each day/night one to remember? Plan a variety of neighborhood activities, which will make everyone feel like they have taken a major vacation. Make certain to consider a large spectrum of tastes and interests. Here are some ideas to get started:
- Ask a family to take a day and make it special for the neighborhood. If you want to put a twist on it, then make it a surprise. Think about how much fun it will be to anticipate each day of break. This will make it fun for the children and the adults!
- Develop an old-fashioned scavenger hunt! Use the neighborhood as the base, and develop clues for kids/parents to find and follow. End the hunt with a party to celebrate the winner. As the prize, offer a gift card to a local attraction.
- Hold a day camp for neighborhood children. Enlist the talents of friends. Ideas include cooking, tennis, soccer, gymnastics and baseball. Maybe even include crafts such as knitting, crocheting and needlepoint. You might even learn a new skill yourself. Encourage the young campers to plan and make lunch every day.
- Get a head start on the summer reading list! Children can read together, compare notes and get going on the required books for their grade level.
- How about the adults? They need a fun spring break, too. How about a special adult book club focusing on the New York Times Bestseller list? Think how interesting it would be to dig into a new book.
