The Best Family Holiday Breaks in America

Are you considering your next holiday with the family? If you are, and you are like an active vacation, then North America has many options for you. Not only do they have plenty of things for the children to do, but they also allow you to get closer to nature and maybe even try some new things.
These are not just summer vacation spots; you can find a lot to do even in the winter months, though you might want to wrap up a little warmer.
Mountain Sky Ranch, Montana
The Mountain Sky Ranch is full of the Wild West spirit. It is a traditional dude ranch, but it offers so much more than that. There are some fabulous activities such as fishing, hiking, and riding horses. There is also a fun and busy kids program to keep them occupied.
The mountain air will smell amazing, and the rugged terrain will make for some challenging hikes.
Rocking Horse Ranch, New York
If you are unable to get out to the West to enjoy the ranch experience, then you can try Rocking Horse Ranch. Situated 90 miles North of New York, this family-friendly ranch has everything you need for a Wild West holiday.
You have everything a good ranch should have, nice trails to follow, horseback riding and a warm camp fire. There are nice rooms included and a kid’s camp that will give them a real taste of the great outdoors.
Heber Valley, Utah
The lovely alpine valley offers amazing scenery and even better activities. There is a vast trail network that will take you up the side of the valley and see it in all its glory. There is also a Heber Valley Railroad that powers through the valley and offers good photo opportunities.
You can also visit the quaint old town of Park City with its Wild West feel and high street shopping.
Mohonk Mountain House – New York
Mohonk Mountain House is another place you can travel to if you cannot get out West. It has lots of activities for adults and children alike, such as carriage rides, woodland hikes, trout fishing and swimming.
There is also a complimentary kids club for the 2 to 12-year olds as well as a teen program for 13 to 17-year olds. They can go on pony rides, tennis hiking, and orienteering. It has everything you need for a great family break.
Even if you cannot go out to the West of the country, there are still some amazing National Parks in most states that have excellent facilities and lots of activities to do. Hiking is the most popular type of activity; however, you can also find swimming, fishing, and sailing in most parks as well.
Wherever you decide to go, you will have a splendid time with all the animals and the stunning beauty that nature has to offer.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
