13 Kids Share Their Worst Spring Break Fails

Vacations are not always all fun, even if you’re a kid on spring break!

By Lorraine Allen

Oh, spring break! The joys! The sun! The amazing memories! Like any other part of life though, spring break can have a darker side: those vacations that, despite all planning and effort, went terribly, horribly wrong. At least from these poor kids’ points of view. Here to unload some of those pent-up, frustrating memories and make room for new, happier ones, 13 kids share their worst spring break tales:

1. “They are all bad. I just stay home with my babysitter! I want to go to Florida like my best friend.” -- Evan, 9

2. “The time we went to Canada and went camping and there was a bear! It was soooo, soooo, soooo scary!” -- Lisa, 12

3. “When we rented this house with a pool, but the pool was broken or something. It was empty! I hated that house!” -- Tori, 9

4. “I broke my leg playing soccer when I slipped in the mud. So I spent my whole vacation in bed and couldn’t even walk.” Alison, 12

5. “My grandparents came to take care of us and they are so boring. They just watched old people TV all day and folded laundry.” -- Simone, 8

6. “I fell in the ice when we were skating.” -- Suki, 8

7. “My mom got really sick and we had to cancel our whole vacation and just stay home and be quiet so she could sleep.” -- Luis, 13

8. “They closed the playground by my house and there was nowhere to play!” -- Elisa, 7

9. “We were hiking and I got stung by a bee and I’m allergic. It hurt so much and then we had to go to the hospital!” -- Sam, 6

10. “I hate spring break because it’s still like winter. It’s not really spring yet. Spring is when you don’t have to wear a coat and hat and boots and be cold!”-- Nico, 7

11. “Last year it was my birthday over spring break so no one came to my party because people went away on vacation. So I got like only three presents!” -- Max, 9

12. “We went to the beach on vacation but it rained and poured and we could not even go to the beach. We had to stay inside all day.” -- Meg, 7

13. “I was running and I tripped and broke my tooth. I think that was spring break. Get it? I broke my tooth because it was a break?” -- Jason, 7
