  1. We are probably going to do a mix of school, visiting with friends who are off school, sleeping in and staying up late.

  2. I don’t have any kids at home anymore but when my children were young they LOVED being in the kitchen with me, especially if we were baking. I made these cute Shamrock Rice Krispy Treats last night that would be perfect for an easy and fun kitchen project. Enjoy your break all.

  3. We will be taking our trailer down south a couple of hours and play in one of our beautiful National Parks. The campsite we have is only $25 a night with water and electricity and all meals will be cooked on site. The only extra cost will be gas and entrance fees. One of my favorite, cheap, getaways.

    Some of our frugal accomplishments for the past week:

  4. Love these ideas. Now I want to plan a “Staycation” But the kids would rather just play the game 24-7. Not really, we go to the lake near us all summer to swim and cook out. Too cold to swim still, but we can cook out and get some fresh air. That will be fun. Thanks

  5. Thanks for the great ideas in this post. My older son is in college, and his Spring Break isn’t the same as ours, so we don’t have any plans.

  6. Loved your ideas! They are so doable. We are going to mix and match with a heavy emphasis on the outside time. We will take our break during Easter week so we are praying for good weather and a low pollen count, lol! If the we will culminate the week with a cool trip to the metro area to do the museums. For my older set we will host a dinner for their friends and movies or gaming!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
