This Mom Needs...Activities for Spring Break (Mom Edition)

Hello Mom’s!

For some Mom’s Spring Break is the perfect time to spend quality time with your kids and create new memories. For other Mom’s you may be struggling to fill your calendar with a week’s worth of kid friendly activities. Here’s a list of Mom approved activities to fill your calendar with and things your kids will love too!

Spring Photo Session

When was the last time you updated your family portraits? If you’re like me, I’m still obsessing over our adorable family Christmas photos (our youngest was only 2 months old at the time)! But it’s time to update our family photos and book a Spring photo session.

If you’re a bargain hunter (also like me) book a mini photo session with a local photographer. Mini photo sessions are typically 20- or 30-minute photo sessions (the kids might behave for that long), held at popular locations, and offer a limited number of photos at a lower cost than a full photo session.

Theme Park

Visiting a theme park in the Spring offers a host of benefits. The Spring offers cooler temperatures than the Summer. The wait times for rides are often shorter in the Spring as well. If you’re in the Tri State Area, there are a host of theme parks to visit. If visiting with younger children, the new Legoland NY theme park or Diggerland USA theme park are perfect options. If you have older children Six Flags might be more appealing.


Whether you decide to stay local or hit the road for Spring Break visiting a museum is a fun activity to do for the whole family. With kids a museum will typically take a few hours to explore. Depending on the type of museum children will have a variety of interactive exhibits to keep them engaged. If you’re visiting the Tri-state area, the Crayola Experience or Liberty Science Center are fun for children. If you’re looking for an option for older children, the outdoor Grounds for Sculpture Museum is a great option.

Day Trips

 If going on a weeklong vacation just isn’t possible, opt for a quick day trip. Sometimes the only way to soothe my sons are to put them in the car and drive. A day trip to the beach for a nice afternoon on the boardwalk, or a day in a popular city finding delicious eats are fun ideas to keep the family busy.

Whichever option you choose to do with your kids they will all be memorable. Remember the days are long, but the years are short. Those tiny little humans will one day be all grown up. Cherish the time you have off with them and make beautiful family memories. Until next time Mom’s!…
