Though we can’t go far this year for Spring Break, being home-bound doesn’t mean being bored. Here are the 8 best staycation ideas we’ve heard:
1. Have A Spa Day
Slice some cucs for your eyes, whip up a DIY vegan face mask, pull out the mani-pedi supplies, and get to relaxin’!
For that extra touch: drop some berries or sliced cucumber into your ice water and queue up a relaxing playlist. Hot towel face-wrap is optional; slippers and bathrobes: mandatory!
2. Host Your Own Film Festival
Pick a favorite movie series, such as Star Wars or Lord of the Rings, or pick a theme (Disney, rom-com, etc.) and host your own film festival from your family room.
Don’t forget the popcorn, favorite drinks and cozy blankets!
3. Set Up an Art Camp
Being home provides a great opportunity to stretch your skills and crank up your creativity!
4. Go Backyard (or Living Room) Camping
You know that tent in the closet? Pull it out and pop it up! You can spend the night in your backyard or your living room … or just host story time in the tent with flashlights and then sleep in your own comfy beds — an advantage of camping at home!
Don’t forget to microwave some s’mores or roast ’em up in the backyard fire pit!
5. Take a Virtual Career Day
Explore fun careers in 360-degree VR! Parents, if you’d like to enhance the experience, purchase these inexpensive virtual reality headsets, but they’re not necessary.
6. Explore The Woods
Look for tracks, forge a creek, press leaves, or just enjoy God’s creation. It doesn’t matter if you head to a state park that’s still open or the creek in your own neighborhood. Just get outside and soak up some vitamin D!

7. Film Your Own Cooking Show
Follow along with Lower School Principal Mrs. Titus’s cooking classes, and then make your own!
Film yourself cooking up your favorite treat, and then share your video with your friends and family. Bon appetit!
8. Take a Virtual Trip
Even if you can’t hop in the car and head to Disney right now, you can explore amazing destinations around the globe!
