14 Fun School Vacation Activities For Kids

School vacation. Two words that used to inspire such joy can now lead to the exact opposite. How did that happen? Simple really, we’re not the ones with the luxury of dramatically exclaiming, “I’m booooooored” anymore. We’re the ones that have to beat that boredom for fear our houses will turn into the season finale episode of Hoarders quicker than you can say bed time.

Lucky for you, we’re here to help! Since the Sponge Bob marathon on Nickelodeon and threats of eternal grounding can only take you so far (like, maybe to Monday night), we’ve compiled a list of some fun, indoor activities to keep the troops busy and help keep what’s left of your sanity intact. Don’t fret, mamas, that hallowed yellow bus of salvation will be back before you know it!
