Spring Break Staycation

Our kids start Spring Break next week and are super excited to be home and resting for a while. Originally, there was discussion in the house of letting the older children visit my mother in New Jersey for a fun and activity-filled adventure there. Then, COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus) started making the headlines. At first it was a trickle here, a person there. Then, this week, two persons tested positive within a twenty-mile radius of us and outside the elder and immune-suppressed at-risk groups typically reported. The schools here have started ramping up plans for distance learning, but so far, the plan is to return after break is over. Add to that the close proximity of a rather populated outbreak just one state over and we decided better safe than sorry. So, our children will be enjoying a Spring Break staycation. But here’s the question. Just what do you do with a 13 and 6-year-old who are home from school all week long?
