Spring is a tricky time of year. We’re all ready to say so long to winter and hello to spring, but sometimes, we get thrown for a loop with some wacky weather. Chilly one day, snow another, and a beautiful sunny day the next. So, if you are looking to keep your kids entertained this month despite the crazy weather, here are five fun activities for you and your kids.
- A lot of schools and local colleges put on spring productions and March is a great time to see some of Broadway’s finest shows without the Broadway price tag. Check to see if there are matinee hours-which will be perfect for younger kids who might have a hard time sitting through an entire musical or play. You can even do some quick research before the show and share some of the plot points and music with your kids before you attend.
- March is National Craft month so it’s the perfect time to get crafty with your kids. From St. Patrick’s Day crafts to spring time crafts, you can find easy and inexpensive crafts that you and your kids can whip up at home. With a little paint and mason jars you can make adorable animal that are perfect for holding flowers, candy, or your kids favorite treasures. You can get the directions right here. Not feeling crafty? You can even find craft kits that contain everything you need to celebrate National Craft month.
