March break, also known as Spring Break, is a week in March where kids get time off from school. In the province of Ontario, this break period has been pushed to April 12 – 16 and is being referred to as the “mid-winter” break. In past years, many families would take advantage of this and book a trip somewhere to relax. However, this year looks a little different. With all of us staying home, March Break will have to change a little bit. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun!
While you have this time off with your family, it’s an excellent opportunity to get creative and stay cozy at home. If you feel like you’re already out of ideas, no problem. Keep on reading to find the perfect activities for your crew!
Being stuck at home doesn’t mean you have to be stuck inside. Make your way outside and have a snowman contest with your family. You can partner up and come up with a theme, or just make a classic snowman. If someone doesn’t want to participate, you can make them the judge. Order a boardgame or something the whole family can use as a prize!
Although your kids may want a quiet March Break, that doesn’t mean you can’t keep active. Exercising and moving around will not only give them more energy, but it will help immensely when it’s time to go back to school. Taking a walk around the neighbourhood, throwing on a dance tutorial on YouTube, and even just creating an obstacle course inside can really benefit everyone.
Make Time for Crafts
Crafts can keep your kids busy, entertained, and creative. Stop by your local dollar store and browse the craft aisle! Once you’ve done that, you can set up a time every day or a few times during the week for crafting hour. You can either have an inspiration photo or let your kids come up with something amazing.
Have a Staycation
You may not be going anywhere, but who says you can’t pretend? Not only are you in the comfort of your own home, but you can save a ton of money as well. There are a few things you can do to make it feel like you’re on vacation for a day or two. Make sure to time slots for specific activities such as a spa treatment and enforce rules such as no chores and no alarm clocks. Get take out from local restaurants you’ve never tried before! To make it luxurious, order hotel bathrobes and slippers.
