Lots of school’s have off this week or the week following for Spring break. Though of course everyone wants to have that perfect tropical crazy spring break week, that is not the realistic case for most teens. Despite this, you can still have tons of fun! Here are some ideas on how to spend your week off.
Throw a party
It doesn’t have to be for anything, it can just be for fun! If you or one of your friends has a big backward, set it up with balloons, tables of food, and games. Order in from your favorite restaurant, have everyone bring food like a potluck, or even set tables up like a buffet. The options for food are endless. Make a theme and have everyone dress up or just make it casual. Your party should be about having fun with your friends and spending your spring break with people who make you happy.
Do a project
Whether its painting, filming a movie, knitting, cooking, drawing, or sewing, find a hobby and dedicate your time to it. Find something that interests you that you don’t normally have time to do and run with it. Be your most creative and expressive self because you have all the time in the world! After the week is up you will have learned or improved a new skill and will have something to show for it! (That’s way better than a tan, right?)
Go for a hike
Hopefully if the weather is nice you will take the time to explore the great outdoors. I am lucky enough to have 2 hiking reserves close to me, but if you don’t maybe make a day trip out of driving to a really cool hiking reserve. If you life in a big city where there are no trees in sight, go to a park! Take time to smell the flowers and enjoy the fresh air.
Have a photoshoot
Get together with a bunch of friends, find a cool location or make a backdrop, grab some props and have fun! Creating a photoshoot is a way to express tons of creativity and personality, plus if gives you plenty of Instagram material!
Go on a day trip
Find a museum in your area or an exhibit you want to check out. Go with your friends or your family, and make a day out of it. Find a cool place for lunch and take lots of pictures of everything you see.
Hope you all have an excellent break!
