Ideas for a Fun, Active, and Educational Spring Break


During Spring Break, you may be thinking of some fun outings or play-dates to enjoy some quality time together exploring what the beautiful Wasatch Front has to offer this budding time of year. 

Check out hands-on experiences by going to places like Color Me Mine, www.colormemine.com, Harmon's Cooking School, www.harmonsgrocery.com/cooking-school/, and crafting classes at Michael's stores.

Also, look at utah.com/hiking for some great hikes and information about certain trails. 

Other great ideas are attending local pet stores to view and interact with the variety of animals, create a giving project for a friend, neighbor, or family member, check out the local swimming pool or ice-skating rink, and story times at various libraries. 

One of my favorites is taking a drive to Utah's own Gossner Cheese Factory in Logan, Ut and then hitting the various other factories in the area: Pepperidge Farm, Creamies, PJ Zone, etc.

The following are some other fun family options of great places to check out if you have never visited:
