The sun is shining, birds are chirping, flower buds are starting to sprout as the winter chill wears off. That magical time of year is here again! And with the change of seasons comes Spring Break! The kids are excited for their break from school and moms everywhere are wondering what the heck they are going to do with these kids that have been cooped up all winter. Undoubtedly, the kids are already “bored” at home despite the fact Spring Break started .5 seconds ago! This is why we have compiled the Pairings and Parenting List of Spring Break Essentials for Kids (and moms!).
Spring Break is new territory to me, at least from a mom side. Imagine my surprise when enrolling my son they told me Spring Break is TWO WEEKS LONG. When did this happen? They might as well make it a month while they are at it. WAIT NO.. I was just kidding. Please don’t do that!
Whether it is a week long or a month long, it brings up the dilemma – What on earth do I do with these kids until they go back to school?
Kids Essentials For Spring Break:

These sleepover essentials will definitely make you the cool mom on the block, just be sure to stock up on snacks so you don’t end up with a houseful of hangry kids.
