Spring Break Ideas for Families on Staycation

BY: Editors | Mar 26, 2019


Think of spring break as a precursor to summer: all of a sudden you have to figure out what to do with your kids during the hours they're not at school. If you're able to spend the entire week with them, an easy answer is to go on vacation. But if that's not in the cards for you, here are some spring break ideas for families who have to—I mean, get to—spend the entire week together.




Day 1: Play Games

Playing games with their family teaches kids resilience and good sportsmanship. It's also a bonding experience—what better way to connect with your family than over a couple rounds of Pac-Man?

  • Sink a hole-in-one—or 12—during a round of mini golf.
  • Knock down some pins at a bowling alley.
  • Strive for the highest score at an arcade.

Day 2: Be a Tourist

How often do you get to see the sights in your own city? Whether you're checking out an art museum or a local zoo, this is a great chance to spend spring break with kids learning about their hometown.

  • Wade knee-deep into art or history at a local museum
  • Visit with the town's wild denizens at the zoo
  • Take a double-decker bus tour

Day 3: Stay Home

If you just don't know what to do for spring break, sometimes the answer is right in front of you. Sometimes the comfort of home is just what everyone needs—a true staycation.

Day 4: Do Something New

Learning doesn't need to stop just because the kids aren't in school; in fact, the whole family can have fun trying something new.

Day 5: Pretend It's Warm Outside

The weather during spring break for families is typically not as balmy as we'd like it to be; warm enough for a quick trip to the playground, perhaps, but too brisk for a dip in the pool. Luckily, plenty of indoor spots provide the kind of fun you'd seek in the great outdoors.
