Spring Break Bucket List

Spring Break Bucket List

Spring Break for our school district will be here soon. This means kids are off school for 5 days for their mid-winter break.

This can mean two different things:

1. Bored kids underfoot.

2. Extra planning is needing to ward off the “I’m bored!” monster.

Here’s some of the things on our Spring Break Bucket List:

Have a Board Game night

This is a great chance to “unplug” from the world and have some family fun. Some of our favorite board games include Monopoly and Candyland. Two other games that are favs (but necessarily “board” games) is Sorry Revenge and Farkle. I like these games because they encourage kids to work on math skills while having fun.

Buy Some Clay! I was recently introduced to Crayola Fast-Drying Modeling clay while making this cool Hobbit-inspired Dragon diorama from Sara Merkel Wilson and Jump Into a Book.

This clay is hella-cool. I bought the big bucket of the stuff and our two kids and a sleep-over guest had a blast creating funĀ  sculptures which we later painted.

It was a fun 2-day process that we can wait to do again over Spring Break.
