Spring break is right around the corner and it’s the perfect opportunity to keep learning outside a classroom, and together as a family. LA is overflowing with activities where those little minds and bodies can work hard, make new connections and—most importantly—have fun. Whether at a new museum exhibit or a crazy parkour class, here are the coolest ways to get out there and enjoy the week “off” with your babes.

Get Hands On

From painting to mandala making, this is a great place to allow your littles to expand artistically; the spot was founded by a longtime Waldorf teacher. APTC is offering a Spring Break camp in collaboration with their neighbor Heartbeat House (a fitness and dance studio) that will celebrate all things blooming in Spring. There will be art projects, music and dance. If camp is too much of a commitment you can also check out their Spring Sunday Workshops for plush toy making. Does it get any better than making your own lovey? Check out their website for more details on class sessions, drop ins and camps.
