Oh the dreaded 2-hour early release followed by 2 full days off. I’m here to share some ideas for you to make the most of your days with the kids at home.

First, if you’re looking to outsource child care for a few hours, try one of these camps:

Educational and Fun Trips:

  • Watch National Treasure (the movie from 2004)
  • Take a trip the National Archives in D.C. to see the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence, but…
    They also have the Super Bowl Trophy on loan from the Kansas City Chiefs, they have a whole exhibit on Title IX, learn why Presidents pitch Opening Day baseballs and other traditions, and more!

Pro Tip: while the museum is free, there can be long wait times to get through security to get in. You can reserve up to 6 tickets to timed-entry and use a different entrance to cut down on your wait time. 

Do you have another ideas you’d like to share? Have a business who is offering camps at the (many) breaks coming up? Please email me!
