With spring break fast approaching, it is time to start planning what you were going to do. However, there are still a lot of global restrictions regarding travel, so going away as you may once have done might not be possible. Thankfully, with a little imagination, there are still plenty of things you can do to have lots of fun and enjoy your time. Whether you take a nature walk or have the perfect indoor picnic, we have come up with 25 fun things to do on spring break 2021 for you.
- Online Games Night
Why not host an online games night for your friends and family. Zoom is a great tool, and you can play charades, bingo, or host a murder mystery.
- Binge on Disney+
While you might not be able to get to the cinema, there are plenty of streaming services like Disney+ or Netflix, so spend the afternoon chilling.
- Carpet Picnic
A carpet picnic is excellent because it doesn’t depend on the weather and the kitchen is always close by! Throwdown a blanket and make sandwiches and other picnic delights.
- Watch a Live Stream
If you are really missing the beach, you can always log on to one of the many live streams from beaches worldwide.
- Visit a Zoo
During the lockdown, many zoos have been able to keep visitors entertained with webcams in various exhibits. Watch monkeys, lions, tigers and more in their habitats.
- Karaoke Night
Have your own family version of The Voice or Britain’s Got Talent with a sing-off via karaoke. You may want to apologise to the neighbours in advance.
- Bake Off
You might not get Pru Leith to judge, but you could host a home bake-off, and the winner gets out of the washing up.
- Wine Tasting
Strictly for the adults of the house, of course. Supermarkets offer home delivery, so order a few bottles to taste.

Another way to have a great night on Zoom is to have a Come Dine Night with some friends. Cook your favourite dishes and pick a winner.

Depending on the weather, you could pitch a tent in the garden or camp out in the living room.
