Spring Break is upon us, although our kids think they’ve been on spring break since mid-March, it now has officially arrived. With vacation plans canceled and an itch to get out of the house, you may be wondering how you can get a much-needed vacation from home. Check out our tips below for fun ideas that you can do with the whole family that will make your kids wish Spring Staycation came every year!
1. Spa-cation: Pamper everyone in the family with homemade facials, nail station, and hair boutique! Have mom or a sibling braid or curl hair, have dad apply face masks, and top it all off with manicures! If you can get through all the silliness that’s bound to come from your own home spa, you could end up with a truly relaxing day!
2. Game Day: Promote healthy competition by setting up an obstacle course, stage a water balloon fight or a twister match in the yard! Or if you prefer more mindful games, take it inside to play board games that the whole family can enjoy!
3. Art Retreat: Get some notepads, canvases, colored pencils, paint, and paintbrushes to get ready for a creativity blast. Not only does art inspire creativity, but it is praised for its therapeutic abilities. Let the group go wild and see what masterpieces you can come up with!
4. Science Camp: Glittery rainbow bath bombs, homemade slime, or baking soda volcanoes are all at home science projects you can help your kids create! This is especially good if they not only missed out on Spring Break but also on regular academics the past couple of weeks. Get more STEM ideas online and create your very own science camp!
