10 Spring Break Activity Ideas to Entertain Your Kids
Kids have a tendency to get easily bored, whereas parents easily run out of ideas to keep their kids entertained. Many parents resort to TV or video games, to keep their kids busy. Here are some great, fun ideas that will keep your kids entertained throughout the spring break season. You may need to adapt or modify these IDEAS to fit your child.
There is nothing better than swimming or playing in water. Take kids for a day to the beach, if possible, or visit a local pool. If you don’t feel like driving anywhere, just turn on your sprinklers and watch your kids have fun. You can even get water balloons and water guns and have a water fight.

2. A trip to the zoo:
What could be more fun than a trip to the zoo? Teach your kids to take pictures of all the animals they see and help them make their own zoological encyclopedia. This way, you can turn an otherwise ordinary visit to the zoo into a zoological project. This will not only increase your kids’ interest in the activity, but will also help them learn loads of things about animals.
3. Camping trips:
Kids love camping. You don’t have to go out in the wild for camping; set up a camp in your house or backyard and have just as much fun. Make sure you make it as real as possible (no cell phones!). Have a cookout in the yard, sing songs, and tell each other spooky stories. You’ll learn that you don’t need the woods, bugs, and bears for camping.
4. Organize a treasure hunt:
Organize a treasure hunt and hide “treasures” inside and outside (if possible) of your house. Make pictures, puzzles, clues or riddles for kids to use/solve in order to find the treasure. Kids are bound to love this adventurous activity.
5. Biking and picnics:
A holiday without picnics is unimaginable. Pack up your picnic basket and have a picnic in the park, weather permitting. If not pick a special spot inside your house and spread a picnic blanket on the floor. Bike riding is also a great spring activity.
