5 Fun Ways To Spend Spring Break At Home

By  |  0 Comments

So you're not going on a super cool spring break with all your friends from school, now what? Here are a few ideas of how to make the most of your week at home.


Talk to your summer job a week or two before break starts, and see if you could help out for the week. If they say no, ask mom and dad if you can work at their offices. Your friends will come back with a tan and an empty wallet, while you’ll come back to school with money in the bank.

Spend time with family

Appreciate the time you have with your family! You don’t get to see them very often any more, and once you graduate, who knows where you’ll be? Mom and dad will really appreciate the bonding time, and might even reward you with some extra cash when it’s time to go back to school! Plus, who isn’t excited for those home cooked meals?

Actually catch up on homework

So it’s not the most fun thing to do with your vacation, but it’ll definitely make the time go by faster and will really help you out when you get back. You’ll actually have time to relax once you get back to school, and your friends will be the ones stressing out that they did nothing over break and have two exams and paper due next week.

Visit your old high school

One of the most rewarding things for teachers is seeing their students all grown up. While we’re not quite there yet, we’re definitely on our way. Visiting your old teachers is license to show off and brag about yourself, enjoy it!


The best part of break: sleeping in. Give yourself a spa day. Ask mom and dad for some extra cash; go down to your local Walmart or CVS and get some candles, face wash and bubble bath for yourself.
