25 Totally Awesome Kids Activities

kids activities

Someone asked me what our plans are for Spring Break this week.  My answer: Surviving.  Lucky for us, Isabella loves school.  Not so lucky for me, she is bored with me by breakfast on days she doesn’t have school.  Even some days on the weekends it’s tough to keep her engaged and occupied while doing the same for her much younger sister.  We play a lot of card games and board games during nap time, but I am always looking for ideas to keep her busy on her own.

I’ve rounded up 25 Totally awesome kids activities that would be perfect to do over Spring Break (or even during Summer!).  Most of these are indoor activities, which is great for this dreary extended winter we seem to be having here in Texas!
