Spring Break Activities for Kids

Fun isn't far away!

The ice has melted, and the sun has returned – it's time for spring break!

Spring break marks the start of many fun activities, programs, and events for kids and families in Springfield. You don't have to go far to find fun ways to fill your spring break days and avoid hearing, “I’m bored!” Here are five fun things to do over spring break:

Play a round of mini golf at Camp Putt

Camp Putt Adventure Golf Park will reopen for the season on Friday, March 22, from 4-7 p.m. with special hours all week long for spring break. Stop by from 12 to 7 p.m. through March 30. After hitting the green, top off your fun spring day with dinner and a view at Roaring Rapids Pizza.

Skate your heart out at a themed skate party

On day two of spring break, head over to Bob Keefer Center for the Getting Groovy Skate Party with a live DJ, fun lights and decorations, and games for all ages. Stop by on Saturday, March 23, from 6-8 p.m. Bring your own skates or rent skates for $3.

Hunt for eggs, dance to marimba and make memories at Megga Hunt

A fun week wraps up at Springfield's largest annual egg hunt on Saturday, March 30, at Lively Park. Join Megga Hunt for a day full of inclusive fun for all ages. Pre-registration is required this year for those participating in scheduled egg hunts. Choose from adaptive/inclusive, competitive, and non-competitive egg hunts, plus enjoy goodies from community partners. Don't worry, there will be coffee! Visit the Most Wanted Espresso truck for a boost of energy then head over to the shelter for marimba music performances. Rumor has it, Hops the bunny, Springs the squirrel and Marti the cow will be greeting guests and taking photos.

Swim and play at waterpark and recreation swims

Splash in the waves and slip down the slide at waterpark swims at Splash all week long. Stop by Monday to Friday from 1-4 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday from 1-5 p.m. Splash will be closed on Sunday, March 31. 

Recreation swims at Willamalane Park Swim Center will be taking place from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Visit a Park

There's no better way to spend a sunny spring day than riding your bike to Arrow Park, having a picnic at Island Park, or taking the dog to Lively Park. Find the perfect park to enjoy time outdoors and search for amenities here.

We hope you have a safe, fun-filled spring break! If you spend any time with Willamalane, be sure to tag us on Instagram and Facebook.
