Spring Break is Coming!

Happy Math & Music Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Ours was so fun but went very fast.  I am so excited for Spring to be so close.  I just love to be outside!  With Spring coming that can only mean one thing… Spring Break! Are you ready? Do you have a plan?  It’s coming, so we better get ready!

Fun Quote

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” – Benjamin Franklin

I love this quote.  It’s the perfect quote for this week’s blog.  I used to joke with friends when the girls were younger that the only time we had behavior issues with them was when they were tired, hungry or bored.  Well, I know what to do when they are tired and hungry… but when they are getting bored … That’s when I MUST have a plan! Lol I realize, I might sound a little dramatic, but if you have ever had two little girls looking at you… or even getting ready to throw a fit… you know you need to have a plan/activity ready…  OR at least a plan and a way to redirect their energy!  So, now is the time, friend!  Spring Break for us is next week, so this means that this week I’m in full planning mode.  I hope you’ll follow along on our Facebook and Instagram pages because I have some exciting things planned.  But first, in this blog, I’m going to give you my top 3 tips for a successful Spring Break!

“Girls excited… Mom excited but a little nervous!”

Spring Break Success Tip: #1 – Pick A Theme!

That’s right, pick a theme! This can be daily theme or even a theme for the whole week.  I love this idea because it changes the whole perspective on your world around you.  Some theme ideas: a different culture, a movie, a different country, the sky is the limit!  Then plan your activities around the theme you pick.  We’re going to pick a theme, then plan a family activity/project, with food or a meal, a craft and a related movie or short video to watch.  

Spring Break Success Tip: #2 – Plan an Outing!

Ok, so towards the end of the week, our girls (I know) will get a little tired of being home all week.  Knowing this, we’ll plan a fun family outing.  I always save this for the end or towards the end of the week.  This doesn’t have to cost money!  It could be going to a park or the library.  The idea is to just get out of the house.

Spring Break Success Tip: #3 – Pick a Family Project!

Ok, so this might not be for everyone, but we LOVE to do family projects together.  It could be playing a game, remodeling/building something, doing a family puzzle, cooking, or even cleaning out a closet.  We LOVE a good family project.  They don’t have to be super complicated, there is just something rewarding for our family when doing a project together.  So, I encourage you to try one if you haven’t before.  We would love to hear about it.  Be sure to send me a message!

Well, that’s it!  Those are my top 3 tips for a successful Spring Break! I hope you find them helpful!  Next week’s blog will have a fun Math and Music Theme, Spring Break Style, you won’t want to miss! So be sure to come back!
