Fun Things to Do Over Spring Break

Fun Things to Do Over Spring Break

Spring Break is just around the corner, and while at the moment everyone is excited to stay away from school for two weeks, sometimes that two-week-period gets a bit boring. Since Arizona doesn’t have the most “spring-friendly” look, it can be a bit difficult to find motivation to do anything during the break. So, here are five things to do over spring break to keep your spirits up and give your mind and body a break from the hustle and bustle of school!

1.Take a hike

The summer heat hasn’t completely kicked in yet, and a little bit of exercise never hurt anyone! Plus, staying at home all the time isn’t healthy mentally or physically, and strolling around in nature gives you a dopamine boost that isn’t addictive, unlike being on your phone or computer.

2. A picnic in the park

Food is an item that is universally loved, but it’s even better when you’re with your family and friends! You can find a table to sit down at, and everyone can bring different foods like pasta, pizza, soda, anything really! It’s also just a cute vibe in general to have a picnic with the people you care about.

3. Blow some bubbles

Despite not being children anymore, both adults and teenagers can never hate bubbles. There is something about watching blowing bubbles that makes you happy, especially since bubbles can remind us of when we were kids, and when the world around was much more simple than it is now. You can also do cool bubble tricks with a bubble wand, and that would definitely impress people in my opinion!

4. Go to a drive-in theater

While we have the luxury of air conditioner to keep us nice and cold in a movie theater, sometimes it’s nice to go old-school and watch a movie in a drive-in theater. Social distancing is also safer since you’re in the safety of your own vehicle and you can bring your own snacks instead of buying it at the theater. It won’t be long before drive-in theaters are gone forever, so take the chance to go experience one!

5. Pick up some volunteering hours

While we don’t want to think about school for 14 days, there’s no harm in volunteering at a library at a spring camp. You get volunteering hours to put on your application form or resume, AND most volunteering opportunities are relatively easy to do.

There are also plenty of other activities to do if these five activities don’t float your boat.

You can also pick up a new hobby like sewing or baking, maybe even try to start a garden (with plants that will grow in Arizona). But most of all, it’s important to spend time with your family and friends during this time because you’ll find that you don’t have enough time to spend with your loved ones as you start to get older and mature into an adult. In general, it’s almost time to take a break and relax for a bit, so make sure you keep pushing until that last day of the third quarter! Remember, Knights, to strive for the impossible and be extraordinary!
