Spring Break Staycations in Northeast WI

Spring Break Staycations in Northeast WI

Who’s ready for Spring Break? I know I am!  Some of us are packing up and heading somewhere warm and sunny and I wish you a safe and fun vacation but if you’re like me, we are having a “stay-cation” right here in Northeast WI.

So, let’s be a tourist, grab the family and your camera to capture the memories and enjoy your Spring Break Staycation with our top 10 ideas!

 

 1.  Get into Nature and Explore!

We have hundreds of local parks, state parks, nature centers and trails to explore in Northeast WI.

Local Parks are in your neighborhood, just look around and visit them all to help those kiddos with all that energy!

State Parks are great for hiking, bike riding, having a picnic and exploring!  State parks do have an admission fee but we purchased the state park pass and that gets us in to any state park all year for just $28.00.

Nature and Wildlife Centers are some of the most educational places to visit and are packed with adventure!

Take a walk, run or bike ride down one of these trails that you find throughout our area and enjoy the scenery!

Make it a goal to tour the Waterfalls of Marinette County or see the amazing Green Bay Botanical Gardens.

 

2.  Volunteer Together!

Depending on the age of your kids, volunteering is a great way to introduce the values of working hard, serving the community and caring for others while helping them understand their own privilege. Choosing a volunteer activity can be one of the best things you’ll do both for your community and you!

Look for local places to volunteer at:

** Volunteer Oshkosh

** Volunteer Center of Brown County-Green Bay 

** Volunteer Fox Cities

** Volunteer Center of Door County

 

3.  See a Live Show

Check out our event calendar to find a kid-friendly concert or a local theater that’s putting on a show. There’s nothing like live entertainment to inspire and elicit enjoyment.

 

4.  Libraries and Bookstores

Go to the local library or a bookstore and spend some time there with the kids. This allows you to visit places near and far, real and imaginary, through the pages of books you read together.  Flip through books, read a story together, and just enjoy the environment. Many have toys, puzzles, computers, and/or activities for kids — consider planning the trip around story hour or a reading from a children’s book author if there is one available.

 

5.  Visit A Zoo

Most kids love seeing, touching, feeding, and interacting with animals. Zoos and petting zoos can be fun places to teach younger kids about caring for animals.

 

6.  Check out a local Hotel

Here’s a classic staycation idea: Check into a local hotel for the night.  Take advantage of being away from home, enjoy the pool, cable TV and complimentary breakfast in the morning!

 

7.  Museums!

A trip to a museum can transport your family to another time and place (several of them, actually) through art and historical exhibits and sometimes fun too if it’s hands on! What a great staycation idea!

Before you go to the museum, prep your kids about the rules like indoor voices, no touching the artwork (unless it’s a children’s museum, where touching is encouraged), no running, etc.  Don’t forget to take pictures, if it’s allowed, so they can remember what art they liked, as well as the experience.

Find Children’s Museums here and a great list of museums all over Wisconsin here.

 

8.  Jump, Run, Play or Bowl

Have kids that have way too much energy and are always on the go?  Why not try out a trampoline park, Indoor play area or Bounce House place?

Have older kids? Maybe try Laser tag, Paint-balling or an arcade lounge.

Don’t forget that bowling is one the best budget friendly family things to do! #GetAStrike

 

9.  Go to a Game

We have plenty of games in our area like the Wisconsin Herd, Green Bay Blizzard and the Green Bay Gamblers to choose from but don’t forget about watching a local university/college or high school game in our area too! It can be fun to check out a sport you’ve never seen “live” before.

 

10.  Get Creative!

Creating art together as a family can be a fantastic bonding activity and relaxing, to boot. You’ll even get a cool new piece of decor to show for it!

There’s not much left of 2019! Winter Break is coming and it won’t be long before you start hearing “I’m Bored” and “There’s nothing to do”.  Here is a quick and easy list of things to do in Northeast WI to keep those kids busy and create some lasting memories.

 

1.)  Still time to see the amazing WPS Garden of Lights at Green Bay Botanical Garden or around the area with our guide.

2.) Try Rollerskating! – There are Roller Rinks throughout Northeast WI.

3.) Check out a Kids Museum!  These are educational, fun and spark their imaginations.  Not to mention this keeps the kids busy for hours!

4.) What about a Movie?  Take those kids out to see a movie on the Big Screen either during prime time or catch a matinee. (especially when we have $5 Tuesdays at Marcus Cinemas)

5.) Find a Bowling Alley and get some strikes and have some laughs!

6.) Find an Ice Skating Rink! There are plenty of either Indoor or Outdoor Rinks in our Area.

7.) Race down a hill on a sled or tube.  Many Tubing hills have started making their own snow.  Just call before going to make sure they are open.

8.) Skiing – Call ahead to make sure your ski hill is open and then hit the slopes.

9.) Find some fun at local kid friendly places like Badger Bouncers, Xtreme Air, Get Air, Sir Bounce Alot, Chuckee Cheese, Monkey Joe’s, Funset Blvd., Badger Sports Park and others.

10.) Learn new things at local Museums!

11.) Get a head start on spring cleaning and have the kids pick out 5 or ten toys they can donate.

12.) Make it a Crafts and Arts Week.  Pinterest is Amazing!

13.) Visit the Zoo and see what the animals are doing over Winter Break!

14.) See the Stars at the Barlow Planetarium.

15.) Take in a Green Bay Gamblers Hockey Game.

16.) Nature Centers! Take a Hike, plan a scavenger hunt or bird watch!

17.) Hot Cocoa Party with all the fixin’s and invite some friends.

18.) Build a Fort and Get Cozy.

19.) Nerf Gun Battles are a standard in our house and are always Epic!

20.) See all the Amazing Aircraft at the EAA Airventure Museum and watch the kids go crazy and learn in the kids area! Be prepared to stay there for a few hours.

21.) Take those kids and Volunteer!  Food Pantries, Humane Societies and so many other non profits could use a few volunteers!

22.) Indoor Pools at the local school or hotel are open usually for a small fee or go all out and hit up the Indoor Water Park at the Tundra Lodge in Green Bay!

23.) Tour the Frozen Tundra, Lambeau Field and check out the Packers Hall of Fame. #GoPackGo

24.) Find your Local YMCA and get into some fun and fitness.

25.) Let your kids Paint a masterpiece! Many of the places that offer adult painting classes, also offer kids classes.

26.) Bake, Bake, Cook! Kids love helping in the kitchen. It can be a bit messy but is so much fun and creates some great memories for those little ones.

27.) Don’t forget about the New Year’s Eve fun throughout our area, just for kids!

28.) Find some fun Winter Science projects to do.  One of our favorite websites is right here.

29.) National Railroad Museum in Green Bay is an awesome place to check out especially for all those train loving kiddos!

30.) Visit your Local Library – They have all kinds of things going on from crafts and arts to storytimes, to even showing some great movies and it’s all FREE!

 

I hope this list helps make your Winter Break a great one!
