Art&Seek Jr: Close To Home Spring Break Adventures 13

Unlike our friends who are skiing in New Mexico, theme-parking in Florida, and hanging with ‘Hamilton’ in the Big Apple, we’re sticking close to home this spring break. This year, rather than hitting the road, we’re doing a staycation and cleaning out closets instead. I figured spring break is as good a time as any to deal with the maximum closet density problem we have going on at our house. “It’ll be totally fun!” I tell my daughter. So far she’s not buying it.

Even though my girl child would disagree, in my humble opinion sticking close to home can be a good option for spring break. Trust me, there’s plenty to do here in our own back yard without taking to the road or the air in search of greener spring break pastures.  Here are a few picks you and your spring breakers should definitely try out during your time off.

You know how you’re always saying you should expose the kids to more arts and culture? Well, spring break is the perfect time to mosey on down to your local museum for a little look-see. There are all sorts of art-related programs and events for kids of all ages. Here are just a few to check out.

It’s been a little touch and go weather-wise these past few weeks. First it’s cold, then it’s warm, then it’s cold again. Well, it looks like we’re finally getting spring-like weather appropriately just in time for spring break. Get out and enjoy the sunshine with one of these nature-related activities.

Just because the kids are out of school doesn’t mean they have to stop learning. Fire up the synapses with one of these events that are not only educational but also fun.

Looking to try something new or completely out of the ordinary this spring break? Check out these picks that definitely fill the bill in the unique and different category.
