Spring Break staycation ideas

Milwaukee Public Schools and many other school districts are off from March 26th - 30th, leaving us all wondering what on earth we should do with our kids. Luckily, we've got you covered. Here are some kid-friendly staycation ideas.

1. Art for kids at the Milwaukee Art Museum

The Art Museum has announced a rare Monday opening to kick-off spring break week, March 26-30, coinciding with the spring break vacation for many school districts including Milwaukee Public Schools and Chicago Public Schools. The Kohl’s Art Generation Studio will feature painting, word games and other activities based on the seascapes of Winslow Homer. These hands on activities are designed both to engage children of all ages, as well as provide context that caregivers can use to connect art making to observing art in the rest of the Museum.

The Museum will be open 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Monday, March 26, 2018. The Museum’s standard hours of operation—10 a.m. through 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, with Thursdays until 8 p.m.—will continue, with the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio open when the Museum opens and closing an hour before the Museum closes.
