March Break Activities at Home

Last year, I shared a post with some ideas for some March Break activities at home and this year I would like to add a few more fun ideas…
March Break Activities for Kids

Sometimes, many children just want a break during March Break. A small amount of down time is important to schedule each day, if possible. The last thing you want is for your children to feel like they were on the go the entire March Break. Kids like down time too! In our house, we call it quiet time. Sometimes the kids have a nap and sometimes they play quietly in their rooms, but in either case, we all take a little break.

There are many great activities that you can organize for your children at home during March Break with very few materials. Think of what materials you have available to you at home and consider involving the children in coming up with an idea.

Use your imagination and creativity with these March Break Activities…
 

Children LOVE to be creative!

Perhaps invite them to make a fort or dress up and organize a tea party with all of their stuffed animal friends.


Have some indoor fun!

If you aren’t heading somewhere warm, perhaps consider having a Beach Day IN!

Put bathing suits on and head into the bathtub for some bubble fun.

Sensory Activities for Young Children – most children, both young and old, LOVE to get their hands dirty and to have their senses stimluated.  This is how they learn.  Sensory and tactile activities are great for children because they allow them explore in a hands-on manner.

Quiet Ideas are Always Good Too!

We have a quiet time every afternoon after lunch. Sometimes the kids have a nap and sometimes they play, but whatever they are doing, they are in their own rooms being quiet. A great idea for this time is to read. DK Canada has a great selection of books for reading as well as books with ideas for March Break Activities!

    I used to love doing arts and crafts with my girls, now I have to wait for my granddaughter to get a little bet older so I can do them with her, I still have my very large tote full of everything you need to let your imagination run wild, and the dollar store is the perfect place to buy everything you need
