Spring Break 2009 Schedule o’ Fun


It was a week in the making but I finally sorted it all out. Here is our schedule for Spring Break this year.
3/13: Date Night – Kids to Kidz Night Out @ Nazarene Church.
3/14: Oklahoma City. Some family members to state HS basketball tournament. Dinner in Bricktown, followed by carriage ride. Stay night at downtown Sheraton.
3/15: Oklahoma City Zoo.
3/16: Beach Day. Activities include wearing swim suits all day, beach ball games, making paper plate fish and sand art, playing in the sandbox, a seashell hunt (in sandbox), and beach bingo. Food will be blue Jell-O cups with gummy fish, Sand Cake, cereal eaten out of buckets and fishy snack mix (with Goldfish, gummies, etc.) – all eaten sitting on beach towels! We will also watch some ocean-themed DVDs to be determined and read some books on the subject.
3/17: Little River Zoo and Sam Noble Museum of Natural History in Norman.
3/18: Pirate Day. Activities are wearing pirate hats and pirate tattoos, hunting for a treasure chest (which will be filled with candy and golden dollars) and playing with a pirate-themed mini sandbox (plus a few other things may be added later). So far the only food planned is drumsticks; will add some other things we can eat with our hands and maybe a fun dessert. We will be viewing The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything and perhaps something else, as well, and reading pirate books.
3/19: Arbuckle Wilderness and picnic by Turner Falls.
3/20: China Day. Activities will be a chopstick competition, as well as making Chinese bracelets, signs and suncatchers. We will have lunch at a Chinese restaurant, since the kids have never been. We’ll read some books and watch some videos (Sagwa the Chinese Siamese Cat, Ni-Hao Kai Lan).
3/21: Orr Family Farm in Oklahoma City.
3/22: Space Day. Activities include making an Alka-Seltzer rocket, some sand art pictures and abstract planet Earth art using crayon shavings, plus Pop Goes the Planet (popping balloons using the sun and a magnifying glass). Food hasn’t been determined yet but I do have space-themed paper plates to eat from, and we will watch Space Buddies and read space-related books.
And then it will be back to school, fun’s over. Well, at least until the following weekend when we take off to Tulsa for a couple days for Eliza’s birthday. 🙂


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
