Spring Break is Almost Here! What Do We Do Now?!

It’s almost time for spring break!!! Round Rock ISD, Pflugerville ISD, and Austin ISD all have spring break the week starting March 12th.

Maybe you are all set…you have the kids scheduled for camps and activities, or you know what kind of adventure you will have each day, or maybe you like to fly by the seat of your pants. Or maybe something has come up and now you’re scrambling. Or, maybe you just plain forgot that spring break was coming….in 11 days!

Wherever you are in the planning stages, LiveMom has compiled a list of camps, drop-in care centers, and other activities to help plan out your kids’ spring break.
