Spring Break is just around the corner and if you haven’t given any thought of what to do with your family, here are 10 suggestions that are inexpensive and won’t break the bank from our sister site HelloBeautiful:
Take a Road Trip
You know that trip you’ve been planning to go see the Grand Canyon, Mt. Rushmore or Niagra Falls? There’s no better time than the present. Pack the up the car and hit the road to find out what America is made of. Give your kids an appreciation of nature and teach them some eco-friendly tips along the way.
Go to an Amusement Park
Rediscover the joys of Ferris wheels and rollercoasters by heading to the nearest amusement park. Your kids will love spending the day screaming their heads off on park rides. To save money pack a cooler with lunch so you can avoid the pricey (and fattening) amusement park eats. The best part, you’ll have no trouble getting the kids to sleep when you get home, they’ll be too exhausted to move
Plant a Garden
Take a cue from the first family and plant a garden in your back yard. Kids will love the free excuse to play in the dirt and their hard work will pay off for months. Imagine their sense of accomplishments when their seeds start to bloom and a beautiful garden of tomatoes, lettuce, carrot and other delicious treats. You’ll save on groceries and always have fresh produce right at your fingertips.
Make an Easter Basket
This edible craft project is a great way to bond with your kids and celebrate the religious holiday. You can use boiled or blown-out eggs and a store bought Easter dye set to create mini works of art. Throw in some candy and jelly beans and you’ll have a both a snack basket and a family made center-piece for the Easter dinner table.
