It’s March Break and you know what that means? You got to have a stack of things to do for the kids or else they’ll get bored (and you definitely don’t want that!).
Make the most of March Break with these five fun and educational activities that your kids will simply love!
March Break as a time to talk to your kids about the benefits of recycling. Go through stuff in your house, especially, in the kitchen and gather everything like empty milk and egg cartons, juice boxes, shampoo bottles and add them to arts & crafts. It’ll also get the kids to clean up and recycle everything in the house that was sitting around. Everyday junk will soon become a playtime treasure with this hands-on activity.
Fill your home with the lovely scent of home of apples & cinnamon. With the kids, gather some apples and wrap them in tin foil, sprinkle some butter and cinnamon on it and roast it in the oven. After the kids can eat them for dessert or a snack.
There’s nothing like getting the kids into science by creating Sugar Rainbows. It’s easy and a fun way to review the colours of the rainbow, but also to explore the concept of density. Watch this video below to find out how to make Sugar Rainbows:
Celebrate Spring Early
Spring is right around the corner. Start the activity by posing the question: What happens when Spring arrives? Encourage talking about flowers, nature, and animals! Watch this amazing video on how to make animal masks with paper plates.
Have a Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts are fun and can kill up to one to two hours of them just finding stuff at home. Scavenger hunts don’t cost a lot of money, all you need are index cards, a little imagination, and a bunch of stuff from around the house. Watch this video below on how to plan a scavenger hunt for the kids with Chris Pegula.
