To lead balanced lives, we all need a break from routine. Spring Break allows families to take vacations or engage in pursuits that they can’t schedule during the school year. Whether you go far away, or enjoy a “stay-cation,” here are some ideas for keeping your children cognitively engaged over Spring Break:
1. Go to a local museum, the zoo, or the aquarium (https://visitmontgomery.com/things-to-do/family-fun/).
2. Go to the library and find some new books.
3. Ride your bikes around a neighborhood and compare and contrast the local architecture.
4. Go hiking and identify wild flowers and plants.
5. Create an original story, write it down, and illustrate it.
6. Try a new art project (paper mache, chalk pastels, sewing).
9. Participate in a spring break camp (http://www.roundhousetheatre.org/, http://www.adventuretheatre-mtc.org/ , https://www.our-kids.com/spring/spring-break-camp-guide).
10. Cook a meal together!
