Having our kids home can be a blessing and a curse. Usually we get excited! We plan a week full of activities - beach, parks, play dates, museums, hikes, we may even plan a getaway. Yet, this year despite our best intentions and preplanning, spring break looks a little different. Don’t you fear, you can do it! Spring break with our kids stuck in the house can seem like a curse, but if you plan ahead and create a week full of indoor activities, it can truly be a blessing.
You got this! I believe in you. And trust me the more you plan ahead, the better the week will be. When kids lack structure and activities, they resort to their own devices to past the time. As a parent, you know what I am talking about. Stay ahead of the game and preplan activities for them to enjoy and keep you sane.
Here are my top 3 suggestions:
Screen free day – now before, you absolutely veto this. Stop and think about all the amazing possibilities. My favorite things about screen free day is that you too, mom and dad, need to get off your phone. This forces everyone in the family to be in the moment, enjoy each other’s company and make some great new memories. And when the day is a success, it’s a great reminder for kids and parents that we don’t need electronics to have fun!
