“Mom, I’m bored!” “Mom, the Wi-Fi isn’t working!!” “Mom is it cool if we surf down the stair on sleeping bags?” For those moments during Spring Break when you need to bust their boredom, when the Wi-Fi goes out, or when their imaginations highjack all common sense, busy bags to the rescue! So, what exactly are Busy Bags? Busy Bags are bags filled with age appropriate activities, arts, crafts, games, etc. to occupy your kiddos. If the thought of having to research various activities and purchase all those supplies to place in your kiddo’s busy bag sounds overwhelming and totally something you don’t want to be doing I am right there with ya!! Which is why I invited other mommas to participate in a Spring & then a Summer Busy Bag Swap, after all, many hands make for light work! A couple years ago was our first Busy Bag Swap and it turned out so successful that we did it again and again…and with so many families opting to Staycation for Spring Break this year I’m looking to do this again! Who’s interested?
I asked the kiddos to make a list of the top 10 things that they would like to do over Spring Break in Toledo.
Here are their requests: (click on each to be linked to the website & get hours/cost)
1. Aquarium at the Toledo Zoo (Finally OPEN!! I can’t wait to see it! Eee!)
3. Walleye Game
5. Imagination Station Dinosaurs (Special Spring Break Hours!)
6. Fun Factory
8. Indian Creek Zoo (Weekend Hours only)
9. In 2Art
10. Build it! (Egg Hunt April 3rd..$7 & kiddos receive a LEGO bunny & 1 hour of open play, register today!)
And I must admit I am pretty impressed…these are all activities that are also fun for moms & dads too! There are some great family destinations on this list! Props to the kids!! Let the countdown to spring break begin!!!
