We are getting closer to the time of year that all the kids are on Spring break, which means it is also the time of year that parents struggle to find things for kids to do.

As a parent of four kids myself, I know the struggles all of us face in trying to keep the kids busy while keeping our sanity.

We don't want them to be sitting in front of the television all week, or spending all their time on trying to finish that last level of Minecraft.

But we also want to make sure we don't head to the looney bin when the week is over.

After doing a search of some different things to take part in around Fort Collins, and utilizing my own experience for what has kept my kids busy, we've compiled the five things that could help out every parent during vacation week.

And let us know what you think should be added to this list! The more the merrier...and all of us parents can band together this Spring!


1.) The Farm at Lee Martinez Park

2.) Fort Collins Museum of Discovery

3.) The Gardens at Spring Creek

4.) Fly High Trampoline Park

5.) Swetsville Zoo
