Tips for Spring Break activities from News 2 at 4-Mar. 24
Joy Holden, a writer for Red Stick Moms Blog, stopped by News 2 at 4 p.m. on Thursday to share some family fun tips for Spring Break activities.
Holden recommended some at-home ideas in case it's raining such as baking cookies and muffins together, creating an indoor obstacle course and creating an in-home scavenger hunt.
Holden also recommended at-home outside ideas like planting seeds or work in the garden, camp in the backyard, do messy play with paint, shaving cream, and bubble bath with swimsuits, or an outdoor movie night.
