Leading up to Easter or spring break most parents are filled with excitement. A chance to spend some quality time with your children. But then when they are happening you can be filled with many feelings. A worry that your kids are bored. You may be struggling to keep them occupied. If this is you, then rest assured. Here are a few suggestions to make the most of the Easter or spring break with the kids.
Take a trip away
Why not make the most of your children being off school or nursery and take them for a trip away. You don’t have to go anywhere too far. There are so many places in the country you live or a short plane ride away. Easter Holidays can be the perfect time to get away. This will automatically get rid of any boredom that has been felt. It will also give you a chance to have a bit of a break. The perfect choice for both parents and kids. You could even go all out with customizable shirts and look into easter shirts for women, men and children so you can all be matched up. The perfect photo opportunity. A holiday can be a great talking point for when they return to school as well. Meaning that everyone will feel well-rested from the break. Ready to get back to normal routines.
Explore some local attractions
Most of the time we don’t appreciate what we have locally and tend to travel far and wide to see some major attractions. But the chances are you have some great things to do right on your doorstep. Most towns have local museums or art galleries. During the Easter break, most will have activities on for kids to get involved in. You could visit the local swimming pool or cinema for something a little different. If you look close enough, you will see plenty to do nearby, meaning you spend less on travel arrangements.
Spend some quality time indoors
If the weather isn’t particularly nice to you. You could set up a few old-fashioned board games and ignite a bit of competitive spirit. Or use Easter as a theme for some crafts. This could be as simple as painting a picture, gluing and sticking or creating some modern art. Pinterest has many different craft ideas to inspire you.
Get outside in the fresh air
Whether it’s raining or sunny, try and get outside as much as possible. If the weather is nice, then pack yourself up a picnic and make the most of it. Enjoying the countryside or your local park can make a great day out. If it is raining, don’t let that put you off. You could pop on your wellington boots, grab an umbrella and go and splash in the muddy puddles. It’s refreshing to embrace your inner child every now and again.
Organize a play date
Finally, if all else fails then organize for some friends to come round. This will pass some time for you and the kids and give you a change of scenery if you attend someone else’s home. Plus it’s a good opportunity for the mums to catch up.
I hope this inspires you to make the most out of Easter or spring break. Enjoy.
