Ways To Help Keep The Kids Distracted For Spring Break In The Quad Cities
Finding stuff to do on Spring Break is always a bit of a struggle for parents and kids alike. I have 3 younger sisters, and 2 of them are still in school. Every year my mom tries to find ways to keep them entertained for a week. If you're in that same boat hopefully, we can find something to help you out!
If you're not taking a trip this year, and you don't just want your kids to be on their phones all day, we have a list of QC events, and fun activities you can try.
