Your calendar says Spring Break. Do you think a great time to relax and recharge or what am I going to do everyday with the kids?  I asked all my favorite moms what their go-to activity is over Spring Break. Click on the pictures from more information about the activities.

1. Plant Magic Jelly Beans to see what they grow they next day! -Annmarie, mom of Pax age 5 and Pyper age 4

3. I pick a theme and do activities around it (one a day) to create an at home camp. Here’s one we did for fairies: Fairy Fun. We also do Easter activities like color eggs and make peep houses. Nina mom of Norah age 8, Finn age 6 and Aidan age 4

4.  I like to bake with the kids. The more hands on – the better. It usually ends up messy – but I let them taste things along the way and then the finished project. It takes a while, and helps fill up space with a sweet reward at the end. -Lindsay mom of Cole age 4 and Amelia almost age 3
