One of the best things about Spring Break is that it encourages your child to connect with nature, breathe in the fresh Spring air and get outdoors, go rock climbing, try something new and hopefully burn off some extra energy. Experts agree that an active child is a healthy child. Do you have a little one that loves to run, jump, climb, horseback ride, dance, tumble? If you do, we invite you to check out this list of vibrant activities this Spring Break. For even more ideas, see our Guide to Spring Break Activities in Indianapolis.
