Assets In Action: Spring break and a whole lot of nothing

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Welcome to April, the Asset category of Constructive use of time and a way past due time for spring break.
This category incorporates numbers 17 through 20 and includes creative activities, youth programs, the religious community and time at home.
Now for those that know me well, spring break is a time for staying in your pajamas as late as possible, scheduling a whole lot of nothing, eating dinner in front of the television and one of those dinners possibly being comprised of all appetizers.
I also recommend a healthy amount of baking, making ice cream sundaes, or going through a drive-thru, again in your pajamas for some sort of sweet treat, late at night.
The theme here is a whole lot of nothing that can still equal a whole lot of fun. Parents and their children need to be able to embrace times where every little detail isn’t scheduled out to the very last minute.
Throughout the month, we will look at the following assets and how constructive use of time is important, but you can also be constructive doodling on construction paper and mailing cards to our troops, or local home bound seniors who could use a kind word.
Here is a look at the entire category.
17. Creative activities — A young person spends three or more hours per week in lessons or practice in music, theater, or other arts.
