This year is just flying by, I can’t believe we’re halfway through March already and Spring break is right around the corner. Since my boys are still on the young side, we don’t do much for Spring break. We don’t travel or go on a vacation, but we do make time to spend some time together at home. Therefore, today I wanted to share with you some of the things we’ll be doing this Spring break in case, you need some activities to help pass the week of no school by as well.
Decorate Easter Eggs
Decorating Easter eggs has always been a favorite American pastime. But what if someone in the family is allergic to eggs? It’s not fair to leave them out of all the fun.
Take a look at Egg Nots. It’s a cool company that sells ceramic eggs and all the paints and headdresses you could ever need to create a basket of beautiful Easter eggs.
And there’s no mess, so if one of the kids is too heavy handed you’re not going to have to clean up the splatter.
Egg Nots offers lots of different additions, so if you want to make some cute chicks they have everything you need to do that. You can also use any crafts you have at home to create the perfect Easter egg.
Play Monopoly Advance to Boardwalk
Long credited as the first spinoff of the famous board game, Monopoly Advance to Boardwalk is a simplified version of the game with a smaller board and with the goal being to build as many high-rise hotels along the boardwalk as you can.
The same principles of Monopoly apply, but it’s an easier version to get the little ones involved with. Due to the smaller board, it’s also a faster game to play, so if the idea of an all-day board game session doesn’t appeal this is the game for you.
It’s a great way to get the kids thinking about strategy, mathematics, and it’s a lot of fun in the process.
It’s an ideal option for spending a few hours together during spring break.
There’s nothing more fun than cooking with the kids. Kidstir is a subscription service where you can get recipes, kid-size cooking tools, and fun games delivered right to your door.
It’ll get the kids into the fun of cooking and adults will have a fun time showing them the fun that can be had in the kitchen.
This service is a delightful exploration of the world of food.
The boys and I tried out the Bake My Day kit the other weekend. It came with three recipes and out of the two, we tried one really turned out to be a success. We were missing some stuff for the cupcakes, so we’ll be giving those a go during Spring break.
The boys did awesome today. We opened their @kidstir box and they’ve been cooking their hearts out (with assistance of course). Their easy apple tart is done and they’re waiting on two more dishes. YouTube video and blog post coming soon. #kidscooking #cooking #kidstir

Play the Monopoly Card Game
Mention Monopoly and most parents will groan. Nothing tears apart family bonds like an argument over the classic board game.
For a friendlier and more fun version of the game, Monopoly The Card Game brings together the ease of Rummy and the fun of Monopoly.
Battle to build the most valuable hand before the other players can. It’s the fun of Monopoly without the arguments!
Scratch Your Head Over the Rubik’s Tower
The original Rubik’s cube is devilish enough, but if you want to really challenge your kids this Spring break take a look at the Rubik’s Tower.
It’s one cube stacked on top of another, which twists around the central axis. If the Rubik’s cube is too simple for the smart one in your family, see how well they fare when they try out the Rubik’s Tower.
Solve the Cute Puzzle Animal with Rubik’s Bear
The Rubik’s Bear is another twist on the original Rubik’s cube. You may have already seen variations of the Rubik’s cube, but this is one that’s ideal for little problem solvers.
If you’ve got young children in the house, help them practice their puzzling skills with the Rubik’s Bear. It looks like a crazy mixed up animal, but there are relatively few combinations when compared to the original.
That means your kids are going to have a great time solving the puzzle. And when they do they’ll feel a sense of victory at the end.
Final Thoughts on Activities to do During Spring Break
Spring break should be fun for the kids as it gives them a break from school. However, working parents may not have the time to go on a vacation or even visit the local attractions around town during the weekday. However, with these six activities, you can still fit in some family activities this Spring break at home without breaking the bank.
What do you have planned for your family to do this Spring break?
P.S. Make sure you keep an eye on my Instagram during Spring break as I’ll be sharing photos of us doing these activities!
