Spring Break Survival
Many families here is West Michigan are gearing up for spring break, which for most starts today. For those of you who are not traveling, here are a few ideas and activities to keep your kids and yourself busy and happy during spring break:
~Spring Cleaning–Have everyone help clean/organize the house. It could be fun to work as a family and go room to room together. It is amazing what you can find under cushions or in the back of the closet!
~Yard Work–Now that the snow is hopefully done for the season, it might be a good time to get outside and clean up your yard. You could rake leaves, pull weeds, till dirt, and plan what you will plant in order to get ready for the spring and summer seasons.
~Smoke Alarms–It is important to check/change the batteries in your smoke detectors several times per year. You could work as a team to check/change the batteries.
~Sort Clothes–Now that spring is approaching, it is a good time to go through your clothes from last year and see what fits and what does not.
~Cook Creatively–There are so many different recipes available online now that it is easy to find something that sounds good and is different than the normal family dinner. You can choose a recipe a cook together.
Hope you find these ideas helpful during spring break!
