Here are some resources shared by a friend for kids to do while on break!
WHY DOES MARCH COME IN LIKE A LION AND GOES OUT LIKE A LAMB?
March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Because March straddles winter and spring in the northern hemisphere, it tends to have very harsh, unpleasant weather in the beginning but typically has milder, more palatable weather by the end.

Be Prepared for Emergencies and Disasters
Emergencies and disasters can happen at any time, often without warning. Teach children what to do in an emergency if they are at home or away from home. Help your kids know how to communicate during an emergency, review your family emergency communications plan with kids at your next household meeting; discuss:
Sending a text message
Emergency contact numbers
Dialing 9-1-1 for help
Get the kids involved in building their own emergency kit: www.ready.gov/kids/build-a-kit Include your child’s favorite stuffed animals, board games, books or music in their emergency kit to comfort them in a disaster. Remember to include your child’s medication and supplies in your family’s emergency kit.
