Here are Some Ideas On How To Keep Your Kids Entertained During Spring Break #sponsored #pley


Spring Break is quickly approaching (wait, wasn’t it JUST Christmas??).  The kids have off from school for a full week and they won’t want to sit around the house. So you think “What should we all do?” I have a list of great ideas to get out of the house (and a couple for maybe rainy days or days you just want to hang home) and get moving and have fun!


Here are some fun things to do with your children on Spring break!


Plan a day trip. Doesn’t have to be far away, but going to a new place the kids haven’t been before will be fun for all of you. Check out a Museum, Zoo, Aquarium, even a State park!


Pack breakfast or lunch and head to the park. If you are on a budget for Spring Break then this is the perfect place to take the kids and enjoy family time. They might run into some friends to play with, even have them do a scavenger hunt! They will have a blast!


Give the kids a surprise and order them an awesome subscription from Pley! Kids love getting mail, on days you just want to hang home Pley would be perfect! They will enjoy fun memory-stimulating toys to build and play with – such as LEGOs or K’nex, Nerf and Robotics Toys, American Girl Doll accessories and so much more! Pley offers a range of plans starting as low as $9.99/month and all plans include free delivery. Once your child is done playing with that toy you can send it back and get a new one! No more clutter!! Your kids (and you) will love Pley for Spring Break!

Head out to the beach for a day of fun. Only in warm weather states of course, take the kids for the first beach day of the new year! Bring along some new sand toys and pack a lunch, the kids will love spending the whole day at the beach!


Rain? Head to an indoor play place. Places like Rebounderz, Pump It Up, My Gym and Air Velocity Sports for example are great ways to entertain the kids if bad weather happens. They will have a blast and get out lots of energy for maybe nap time! Oh yea!!!


Have a Craft day. Look up some awesome crafts to do and the kids will be thrilled. Perfect for a bad weather day, or a not feeling so well day.


Playdates, Playdates, Playdates! Your children are going to want to hang with their friends on spring break and not spend all the time with Mom or Dad. Set up playdates beforehand. Some great ideas are Park playdates, Bowling, Mini Golf, Zoo trip and meeting up at the Pool!


Overnight trip. Overnight trips are always fun for kids and adults. How about a night away at Disney World or Disney Land? Buch Gardens is a great one, and so are the indoor water parks such as Great Wolf Lodge. You all will have a blast!


I always look forward to spending more time with my kids, especially when they are off of school. I will definitely be doing most if not all of these ideas. I hope you will too!

What are your plans for Spring Break?

  1. What a cool way to have fun toys for the kiddos without worrying about losing interest after investing in pricey ones. This is perfect for the winter months too.

  2. I love this list. Not everyone can afford to travel over Spring Break so why not make it just as fun at home?! Great ideas.

  3. These are great ideas. I’m not averse to my kids having their electronics, but sometimes, I’d like to do something with them instead of just with them in the room.

  4. We are starting to have warm weather here, but alas, we are a landlocked city… maybe we can find a splashground this week!

  5. We’re definitely going to take in some local museums and even check out spots from the Underground Railroad as both my younger kids did projects on in recently. I’d like to send them to my family’s house for a couple days. A new environment should spark some creativity.

  6. Daytrips were always one of our favorite things to do during short school holidays. We are really lucky because there are a lot of cool, family-friendly destinations not too far from us.

  7. What excellent ideas for daytrips! My favorite is the park and a scavenger hunt. Kids love secret maps and the details to find the hidden treasures. We’re back in the rainy/snowy era where daytrips are fun to plan and do, inside and out.

  8. These really are great ideas. I like the craft day and overnight stay the best. Great ways to create memories.

  9. These are such great ideas, especially having playdates with other kids, I’m sure moms are wondering what to do as well. That way you can have kid time and grown up time at the same time!

  10. Craft days were always a lot of fun for us. I really like the idea of doing an overnight trip somewhere fun too.

  11. It sure is nice to have a plan of action for the kiddos.

  17. I am agonizing over what to do for my son for Spring Break. He is 14 and only finds entertainment in video games 🙁

  18. Day trips are fun. Doesn’t matter where you’re going either it’s just nice to get out.
