Making the Most of Spring Break

If you’re seeking to make the most of the upcoming spring break, we recommend planning now. Whether you’re heading to warmer climates than Wadsworth or staying home, have an idea of how you’re going to spend time with the kids and options that you have for childcare.

There’s nothing worse than kids who are at home with nothing to do.

To prevent this from happening, we recommend having them make a list of activities they can do at home and around the neighborhood. When they scream, “We’re bored,” hand them their own list of ideas. They won’t be bored for long!

Activities include playing games with siblings and/or friends, chores like cleaning their room, art projects like painting, coloring, or playing with clay, making up their own games, and practicing for a self-directed family talent show. If the weather is okay, they can play outside in the yard, ride bikes, or go to the park.

Fingers crossed that by April break we will be experiencing springtime weather!

Walks, time at the park, play dates, and Wadsworth Public Library activities for families keep everyone busy and (hopefully) out of trouble. Of course, there are always classes and activities here at Powerhouse Cheer and Gymnastics!

Let the creativity flow. 

Invite their friends over, provide a few items, and tell them to use their imaginations.

  • Pillows, blankets, sheets, and cushions can be used to create a fort.
  • Set up the tent in the yard and let them camp outside. Even if it’s just during the warmest part of the day, they can let their imaginations flow.
  • At the end of the day, pull out the grill and have the first barbecue of the season.
  • Host family pajama day where you just spend time together watching movies and eating your favorite foods.

A family that plays together is one of our favorite kinds of families! With a little creativity and planning, you and your kids can have a fun and productive spring break!
