It is that time of year again where most of us are usually preparing to leave on a fun, family vacation while schools are on spring break. Some of us have been forced to cancel our previously scheduled itineraries due to the pandemic and stay at home orders in place. There plenty of safe and creative ways even during a pandemic we can spend our time such as road trips, spa nights and many more! Consider these five alterative ideas for spring break staycations that can keep your family safely entertained!
Take A Road Trip
Do you miss travelling and sight-seeing? While leisure air travel is not recommended, road trips are a great way have alternative fun and get the whole family out of the house. There are many roadside attractions with little to no contact involved for a photo op. You can also enjoy the scenery such as scenic coastlines, mountains or desert landscapes. Make sure to turn up the music and put the windows down!
Have A Spa Night
Stay out of the crowds with a staycation structured relaxing spa night at home! Each member of the family can enjoy their own bit of pampering and self-care. You can create stations for nails, skin care and hair services. Easily pick up or order online spa goodies such as sheet masks, nail polish and lotions for the entire family to enjoy. Sip on some refreshing signature cucumber spa water to complete the experience!
Head To The Beach
If you live somewhere near a beachy coastline like California, now is a great time to get outside! Being in an outdoor environment ensures safety while crowds will be widely dispersed. Make sure to being games, a blanket and snacks! Not only will everyone have a great time, but it is an opportunity to be physically active while chasing a frisbee or throwing a football back and forth.
Plan A Game Night
There is nothing like a good old fashioned game night with the people you love the most! It is a fun way to create memories without having to leave the comfort of your own home. Playing games is a fantastic way to spark creativity from preschoolers to high schoolers. Depending on what you enjoy, there are a variety of games for everyone from card games like Uno and classic choices such as Pictionary.
Visiting a local camp group is a smart alternative to a trip that would include flights and overcrowded environments. Being in mother nature is a great way to provide an escape and soothe unrattled nerves for the whole family. Be sure to bring all your camping essentials, s’mores for roasting and maybe some musical instruments for a sense of adventure around the campfire!
Whether you are staying home or hitting the road during your spring break this year, be sure to make the most of it! We would love to hear where you are heading or what activities you have planned with your family!
