Being a Michigander, sometimes it's hard to say those words, but we know spring will make an appearance soon, trust me.

As I discussed before, not everyone goes away for Spring Break. Lots of families stay home, and it can be a challenge to find things to do. That is why I'm here to help.

The Boys & Girls Club will have some great fun going over spring break. They have struck up a partnership with Ebony Road Players over spring break where kids will partake in a short theater camp, a floor hockey tournament with the Grand Rapids Griffins, and community day at Buffalo Wild Wings--just to name a few of the fun activities. CLICK HERE for more information.

On April 4, the Grand Rapids Downtown Market will host Lil Green Thumbs: Spring Break in the Greenhouse, and it's a free event for kids and families, from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Kids can get the inside scoop on all things related to plants and bugs while enjoying a tropical climate. They'll get to examining bugs up close with magnifying glasses in the “Bug Zone,” reading plant and nature books from Kent District Library and even making take-home greenhouse crafts including peanut butter bird feeders, plant pails and coffee.

The Grand Rapids Downtown Market Greenhouse is at 435 Ionia Ave SW, Grand Rapids. Log on to for all the information, or call Sarah Suydam, 586-707-2724,
