Looking for spring break ideas that don’t break the bank? Gather inspiration from the following list of ideas for using your spring break to rest and refresh.
– Take advantage of this beautiful weather and get outside! This post on 21 outdoor activities for homeschoolers gives some great ideas for incorporating learning into nature exploration.
– Get together with friends. When you’re both busy, it can be hard to make schedules work. Use this time when you’re both off school to have some quality time together! You could even take turns having each other’s kids over, while you get some cleaning, scheduling, or relaxing done!
– Even if you don’t think you can spare a whole week off of school, having a lighter school schedule of “just the basics” can help your kids still feel like they’re getting a break and have time to explore things you usually don’t have time for, like:
- Riding bikes
- Flying a kite
- Draw with chalk
- Science experiments
- Making meals that go along with your study of history/culture
- Working on projects that complement your study of history like salt dough maps, paper mache, a medieval castle built from cereal boxes, etc.
– Take a fun outing to fun and educational sites like Science City, Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm, Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead, or Missouri Town.
However you spend your spring break, hopefully it will be a time of fun and refreshment. We’d love to hear your favorite spring break ideas!
