5 spring break ideas for teens
1. Monday: Broomball Tournament
Head for the ice cream indoors or outdoors (depending on where you live). Grab some brooms and a ball, and make some wacky rules. Finish with a pizza night and group devotional.
2. Tuesday: service day
Contact your local homeless shelter, pantry, or nursing home. The options for youth service projects are endless! Ask how you can best serve. Depending on your group size, send different teams to different locations. Then come back together and share stories from the day while enjoying snacks.
3. Wednesday: Treasure Hunt
Head to a local mall for an afternoon scavenger hunt. Then have dinner together as a group. Be sure to call the mall ahead of time to let them know what you’re planning.
4. Thursday: Fundraising and Childcare
Offer babysitting for an afternoon. Parents can drop off their youngest children for a few hours. Teenagers can play games with children, do crafts, sing songs, etc. Make sure you have plenty of adult volunteers who have had their background checked. Optional: Accept donations for upcoming mission trips or youth ministry activities.
