Spring Break is just around the corner, now's the time to start planning a fun, family vacation. Spring break often consists of trips to Disney Land, a beach vacation or visiting family. Unfortunately, Las Vegas is seldom included on the list of family friendly vacation spots what with it's predominately adult attractions. Over the years I have found that there are a lot of great options for a family get away off the strip. Check out these kid friendly ideas and start packing!
When I was a preschool teacher some of the best activities were during Spring time. With the changing of the weather the kids were able to spend more time outside which we took full advantage of. Not only were they able to run around to get rid of lots of energy, but things were also changing all around them. Flowers start to bloom and grass starts to grow. Bugs appear from hiding and birds are out and about building their nests. You can feel the sunshine on your skin and the breeze on your face and everywhere you look, the colors are becoming more vibrant and things are starting to become alive. Just being outside provides so many teaching opportunities to take advantage of.
January always marks the start of “get back to reality” season. With the holidays over, it is the season where we lay out plans for the upcoming year’s activities, trips, goals and vacations. In many cases, vacations were probably at topic of conversation around the holiday dinner table.
