Spring Break Blog

It is Spring Break time in my neck of the woods. Hopefully some of you are finding time to catch a break and travel, do some things locally and spend some time with your families. What is this SharpMom doing this week? Well, we are not traveling to any beaches, but there are plenty of things we can do locally to have some fun. If you are stumped on some things you can do at home, try out some of these ideas.

1. Stop and smell the roses.: Ok, maybe not roses, but it is warming up and if it isn’t rainy you can take a little nature walk with your kids. Visit a local park and soak up the sun. You could even pack a little picnic lunch or take along some snacks. If your kids are like mine, they’ll love spending a little extra time outdoors.

2. Check your local restaurants for free kid meal deals.: Many chain restaurants offer free meals for kids with the purchase of adult meals. I know in our area Fazoli’s, Pimentos, and many other restaurants offer this option. It would be a fun outing for you and your kids, plus you don’t have to worry about cooking dinner!

3. Find a sitter.: Call up a sitter or let Daddy (or Grandma) take over duty for one afternoon or evening during your break. You can go get a pedicure, shop the new spring fashions, or meet some girlfriends for drinks and apps. I love the spring sale going on at Old Navy right now. Isn’t this Jersey Knit dress so precious (and affordable at only $8-$15 depending on the pattern)?!

4. Take a mini field trip.: Take the kids to tour the local fire station. Visit your local zoo or museum. Take the kids to visit Dad or Grandpa at work. These ideas are a great way to spend a morning. Then head home for lunch and relaxation for the rest of the afternoon!

5. Hit up the Dollar Stores: Grab a few bucks for each kid and visit the Target Dollar Zone or your local Dollar stores. Let them pick out what they like or grab some bubbles, chalk, and bouncy balls to use for some outdoor fun at home.

So SharpMoms, what are you doing for your Spring Break? Even if you are not leaving home or have to work, I hope you’ll find some time to spend a little Q-time with your kids. Share your Spring Break thoughts with me. Leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you!
