Keep the Kids Busy - Spring Break Activities for Every Age

Spring Break is one of those times of the year that kids love and parents fear. Don’t get me wrong - it’s wonderful to spend time with the kids. But if you’re ill prepared, the week can quickly spiral into boredom oblivion, no matter how many toys your kids have.

We’ve compiled some fabulously fun activities from the web to keep kids of all ages entertained and inspired.

And, if you’re lucky enough to be heading somewhere warm for Spring Break (I’m jealous!), some of these will even work as travel activities.

  • DIY Lego Travel Box (shown at right) – this idea is GENIUS!! I will be trying this one out for my kids’ vast Lego and Playmobil collections.

  • Bug Tic Tac Toe – this activity does double duty as a craft and a game, and it can be modified to suit almost any age. If you’ve got older kids, they could decorate the rocks with superhero logos, cupcakes… anything they like.
