One, Two, Spring Break!

Ok, so everything was fine until you realised that spring break is almost on your door step. And this means that the whole crew will be hanging out at home. And there is no way, that it can end up without any casualties. Unless you plan it all in advance. And plan throughly.

If you don’t want your precious Ming Vase or even your car to become a collateral damage, you better explore your option, momma.

For starters, buy your kid a book. No I mean it. Remember how much we used to read? Really. Our moms were too busy to taxi us around and entertain us. We read books.

But start slowly. With something that can actually interest your rug rat. For example, if your kid is into soccer – buy him a book about improving soccer skills. Be reasonable.

Here are some of the activities our amazing city has to offer.

Let’s start with obvious. It’s Easter time. So unless you’ve planed a trip to visit your relatives (and destroy their home), you’ll love to hear that this Easter in New York is going to be fun, hands on, legs on, and brains on.
