For many parents out there reading this, there will be a 5-day vacation coming for your kids in the next week or two. This vacation for your kids will likely mean more work for you, but it can be fun (really, it can) if you organize it properly.
If you are taking this time off from work - first off, good for you - and second, what do you have planned? If flying south or driving south or whatever sort of getaway you’d like to take isn’t in the cards, check out our list of ways to spend time as a family without spending the kids' college funds.
Here are our ideas...
- The Big Cardboard Box.

We hope we’ve given you at least one or two ideas to help fill your March Break. If nothing else, we hope you decide to make a plan for the time. Nothing is worse than the plaintive call of, “I’m borrrrred”, especially early in the week. Having some ideas in your pocket will help stop this before it starts and make everyone’s break fun and enjoyable.
