Spring Break Bucket List ~ Free Printable

While I love the idea of taking a big trip for spring break, the reality is that school is out, work is not. Hopefully, we will be able to get away for a mini trip for a night or two this year, but for the most part spring break is a staycation for mom and the kids. The key to making it special, instead of wasting the days is a spring break bucket list. Planning a few special meals and snacks, craft projects and fun activities can help make lasting spring break memories that don’t break the bank.

There is nothing simpler than a sheet strung between chairs or hung over a card table, but a single fort can provide hours of entertainment. After building a fort, my kids typically want to do everything in the fort from reading and playing with dolls to eating lunch. Which makes a fort the perfect place to have an indoor picnic — complete with a picnic lunch.

Smucker’s® Squeeze™ and Jif to Go® Peanut Butter turn ordinary crackers into a DIY lunch, and I don’t know about your kids, but mine love anything they can do themselves! I stocked up on snacks, creative lunches and craft supplies at Walmart to keep costs down and the fun high.

Spring Break Bucket List

You don’t have to over-plan spring break. Just one or two ideas each day to keep things moving, after that let your kids imaginations direct the days. After all, that’s the beauty of childhood.

Thinking ahead I made a list of idea starters for spring break. Even if we don’t do everything on our bucket list, it gives us a good place to start each day when the kids ask, “What are we going to do today.”

Planning a picnic? Skip the chore of making PB&J and grab a box of Smucker’s® Uncrustables® to go. Just toss the frozen sandwiches in your cooler, and they will be thawed by the time the kids are ready for lunch. Bonus they will help keep your other foods cool! (Also great for the beach!)
