March Break, or as other’s call it, Spring Break is right around the corner. Wondering what to do with your kids? Here’s some March Break Activities to make this little break from school super fun!
March Break can be a welcome relief for kids of all ages.
NO SCHOOL WOOHOO
For many kids, it’s a time to play all day, stay up late and sleep in till noon. Eat all the snacks and watch all the movies. Gear up for a super fun staycation.
Just because you’re staying indoors, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun.
Here’s a collection of March Break activities to keep your kids happy and engaged this whole week.
Go to the library
Many libraries have March Break activities and programs during the break. Just because there’s no school doesn’t mean our brains take a break. Let you kids grab some really good books from the library, and spend at least 30 minutes a day reading.
Make it fun! Start a 7 day or even 30-Day Reading Challenge and see how many books you and your kids can read during that time!
have a picnic at the park
Picnics are a classic spring time activity. While in some places of the world (like here in Canada)it may still be a little chilly, but you can still make it fun!
Pack some lunches, snacks, and drinks. Blankets, pillows, and toys, and make it special.
While at the park you can birdwatch, look for spring time foliage or create your own spring time scavenger hunt.
Movie day / Movie night
What kid doesn’t love movies. Grab all the blankets and pillows, and make a comfy fort. Popcorn and snacks are essential! Make your favourite movie time snacks and watch their favourite movies.
Spice it up by watching something new and different.
Or make it a routine, watch one movie a day during Spring Break for a fun moment everyday.
While it may be too cold over here, to jump in the backyard pool. Many recreational centers have swimming programs and activities during Spring Break.
Practice your backstroke, breaststroke and perfect the perfect dive. Free swim days are perfect for a last minute fun family activity.
This one is for the Canadians! Here in Toronto, we still have mountains of snow everywhere. March Break still looks and feels cold. So why not engage in some late time winter activities?
It’s still cold enough over here to skate outside, but our local community center has an ice rink and skates to rent! Great way to get in some exercise while having fun!
Make arts and crafts
Grab all your paints, paper and glue! Creating crafts will be sure to keep your kids entertained. There are soo many things that you can make! Need some ideas? St.Patricks Day is coming up, so make a Handprint Leprechaun with us!
Here’s a couple other spring break crafts that you can make:
- Bird’s Nest Spring Craft from The HappyHousewife
- Diy Grass Heads from Red Ted Arts Blog
- Cardboard Tube Binoculars from CraftsByAmanda
Play board games
Our little family loves board games! Our favourites are Hungry Hungry Hippo and the classic Game of Tic Tac Toe.
Play with LEGO’s
Build cities, cars and animals! Your imagination is the only limit. March Break is the perfect time to build that huge LEGO dinosaur you (I mean, your kids) have been wanting to build! Working together as a family to create something awesome is sure to create memories to last a lifetime.

We love taking long walks around the parks on sunny spring days.

Grow a garden
This one of my favourite spring time activities! & my daughter is starting to get quite the green thumb.
We plant indoor gardens every spring season.
Get those little planting cups and some flower seeds and watch your plant babies grow! It’s a great activity for teaching kids about nature and how plants grow over the next couple of weeks.
Just because they’re not at school doesn’t mean they can’t see their friends.
Arrange a day for some of their friends to come over for a playdate.
Plan some fun indoor activites for them to do. Make some cool spring break snacks.

Visit a local attraction
For a cherry on top of an amazing March Break, you can visit a local attraction.
