Are the kids on spring break this week? Have you run out of ideas on how to keep them from climbing the walls and everyone involved sane? If this is you, it’d behoove you to check out Kids off the Couch.
When I ran across the website, Kids off the Couch, I immediately thought, ‘what a great resource!’ Kids off the Couch is a free weekly e-newsletter that offers insightful suggestions on family-friendly activities. The e-newsletter and its accompanying site and blog were created by moms and targeted to other parents, especially those with big kids. It features a laundry list of creative ideas and activities for families with kids of all ages, including tips for movie ideas, cultural activities and staycation suggestions that are relevant all year long, not just for spring break. As I browsed through the adventure archives, it was one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” moments. Well, thanks to the moms at Kids off the Couch, here’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of finding that next family adventure! As someone who appreciates culture and local adventures, this is the kind of newsletter that is a great addition to my inbox.
Go on, after you sign up for their newsletter, unplug yourselves, get off the computer and get the kids off the couch!
