March Break Activities

Blog Categories

March break is almost upon us and it’s time to start thinking about how your students will fill the 120 free hours they have. There are many options that are fun, educational and fulfilling that can keep your students busy over March break.

March Break Cooking Class

Teaching your students to cook is a fun and educational activity; students practice their reading by following the recipe. Learning to measure and follow recipe instructions is a great way to practice for science lab experiments and learning to cook is a valuable life skill. Invite some friends around and get your student to cook a simple two-course meal like soup, tacos, pasta or noodles followed by cookies or cupcakes.

March Break Camps

Camps are usually one or two day affairs which cost around $50. Whatever your student’s hobbies and interests, there are camps that are perfect for them. Whether its winter camping, crafts, music or sport, your student is sure to find a March camp that suits them best.

Home Makeover

Simple design ideas can really add pizzazz to your student’s room. They can do a mural on a wall or give tired furniture a new lease on life with a new coat of paint. Encourage your student to be creative and to enjoy making something unique out of their personal space.


Your student can benefit from helping others by meeting new people and having interesting experiences. There are an endless number of volunteer opportunities in your neighborhood, so explore these and get your student to give back this March break.

Family Trees

Exploring your family history can be a really fun activity. You can gather your own information if your students are good detectives, or you can join an online ancestry site which will map your family tree for you. Your students can call relatives to find out how much they remember or to ask for photos to add to a family tree. You can visit sites that are of importance to your family and or homes where relatives used to live. Family trees are good ways for students to see where they came from and to give them a sense of belonging.

Junior Astronomer

The recent meteorite sighting has made many students turn their attention to the stars. You can buy or rent a telescope and take advantage of the clear winter skies to learn more about the night sky. Look up the position of constellations online. Smartphone apps make it easy to identify different stars and planets as well as constellations. A trip to your local observatory will augment your field trips with additional data. Museums often also have great exhibitions on the stars and the origins of the earth.

Just a little forward planning can alleviate March break boredom and help your students to do something fun, entertaining and constructive with their extra time.
