Family Fun for March Spring Breaks from School

skiing-960x1280-1Go skiing or snowboarding.

Gear up this March Break and take a couple of days to hit the slopes with the family. Not sure where to go, check out these great places close to home.


Play board games.

Want to stay indoors on the colder days? Wipe the dust off those board games you have stored away. Break out classics, like Operation and Monopoly, or try out newer games, like HedBanz or Pie Face, and let the giggles commence!


Attend a local festival.

Ask around or surf the web to find some fun festivals or events going down in your city. Google the name of your city, state or county plus “March Break events” for local happenings.


Go skating.

Check out the local rinks at: ( and tie up your skates for a day full of family fun. Don’t like crowds? Then try building your very own ice rink in the backyard. (It’s easier than you think!)


Watch a movie.

It’s OK to be a couch potato once in a while. Make some popcorn, grab the blankets and turn on your favorite family movie or show.  


Go snowshoeing.

Not all families own snowshoes, so if yours doesn’t, look into local places that rent them. Door County has many trails ready to explore.

Here are just a few:

Or you can try out:

Or the state parks:


Bake, Bake, Bake!

Get your little chefs in the kitchen and make your favorite recipes or try some new ones!


Get crafty!

Gather all of your craft supplies and get to it! The kids will love getting messy (and you’ll love that they’ll be busy for hours!). Help them make a cardboard dollhouse


Go for a hike.

Use nature to your advantage on a day where you’re feeling less creative. Get the kids bundled up and go for a walk outside or through a nearby forest. Many of Door County’s hiking trails are open throughout the winter.
