Spring Break is officially kicking off here in Houston! If you are staying home this week and are looking for some things to do, I wanted to give you some ideas!
This year we are ROCKING the Staycation!
Staycations. We have done this a few times and the kids LOVE it. We make up a plan of things we want to do in our own city that we are always too busy for. Then we plan each day as if we are out of town with no distractions and spend the day as a family. We go to parks that are “in town” or down to the beach, or see historical sites that we had no idea about. Just google “things to do in….” and make a list of places you are interested in. We have also gotten a great deal on a hotel room only 40 minutes from our house ( make sure it has a pool!) and spent the night there and did a few things during the day and came home. It didn’t cost a lot, but the kids felt like they had a vacation because sleeping in a hotel “is soooo cool!” Plus, they got to swim in the pool all night!
If you are NOT in the Houston area… many of these still apply to YOU! Just call ahead to the same locations and make sure they are participating! If you see some that I have missed, make sure to let us know!
