Family Friendly Spring Break Ideas
Family Spring Break Movie Day Ideas
Set aside an entire day to watch movies. You can rent movies, buy a new movie, or watch videos you already have at home. Grab some movie snacks, comfy clothes, blankets, and pillows. Snuggle up and enjoy the day as a family.
Family Spring Break Game Day Ideas
This is one of our favorite family days. We have a bunch of games but, honestly, don’t play them as often as I would like. However, this also is why during vacation days, we spend the day playing as many games as we can pack in. We play everything from card games to board games, to games my kids make up on the spot. The most important part of this day is to have fun with it. Some games may not be played correctly by the rules depending on the ages of your children but, either way, everyone should have a good time.
Family Spring Break Ideas: Arts and Crafts
This one may not take all day but, is still a fun way to spend time with the kids. You can do any type of craft. You can buy kits at the store that contain everything you need to do that specific project or, you can use what you have on hand.
Family Spring Break Puzzle Day Ideas
This one may possibly be a lost art for kids. Spending the day putting together a giant puzzle isn’t typically a common choice for kids. They can easily do smaller puzzles at first, but nothing compares to spending the day as a family putting together a huge puzzle. If you are looking for a bit different style of puzzles, UGEARS puzzles are a favorite for us. UGEARS have puzzles for both kids and adults so everyone can have something fun to do.

Family Spring Break Day Trip Ideas
This is probably my kids’ most favorite things to do. We take a day and drive anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours away from home to explore. I have found that there are so many things near us that we typically don’t think to explore. Whether that is because we think “I’ll get there someday” or, just haven’t thought of it because it is so close. I have learned that now is the time to explore those places or it may never happen.

Either way, your family is sure to have a good time.
