My son goes to a private school, so instead of a whole week off for Spring Break like many schools, he only has an extended weekend off! Just four days! Not enough to really travel anywhere. So this year, we decided to find things we can do at home and save to enjoy a longer vacation later in the summer! Ideally, we’d spend all day lounging in a backyard pool similar to those seen on pool kings, but right now we don’t have a pool, so maybe that’ll be one for next time!
We hope our ideas will inspire you to do some things at home as well, in case you don’t have any travel plans!
5 Spring Break Staycation Ideas
We have selected some Easter and Fun Movies to watch in our home theater with popcorn and other refreshments!
Here are some of the titles we selected:
Despicable Me 2
The Secret Life Of Pets
We also invited some of my son’s close friends, so they can hang out before our Movie Marathon!!
You can find amazing children’s movie selections at Best Buy!
Sing, which we downloaded using Fandango App! There’s so much we can do now, so many movies we have access to digitally!!
Right now there’s also a FREE SING LUNCHBOX deal you won’t want to miss!
Best Buy’s expanding their selection of kids and family movies online or in-store. Great gifts or fun for your family! Here is more:

Here are some other great ideas:
Make your own Pizza
You can have several different toppings like, pepperoni, sausage, ham, olives, peppers, and shredded mozzarella, tomato sauce and pre-made mini pizza dough, so we can enjoy making our own pizzas as a family!
If you plan to do it for lunch, you can replace the dough with english muffins for smaller portions!
Fun Dessert Buffet
My plan is to use two types of ice cream as a base and crush Easter candy, it’s great to re-purpose it, right? Place them in little containers as toppings, along with whipped cream.
We’re having it to balance a night with a very healthy meal!!!
Go For A Walk
We have a beautiful creek and trail behind our property, so we will take one morning and go for a walk on the trail and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather!
I have a beautiful picnic basket and we haven’t used it in a long time! Our plan is to take an afternoon and have a picnic basket at one of our local parks and just enjoy it in a picnic area and walk around, afterwards!
