MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - While students love spring break, some parents find it hard to keep their children entertained at home for a full week.
April Pittman is a mother of four. She said it's difficult finding something for her children to do during spring break. However, the City of Memphis is helping her out with the Spring Break Experience.
"It's really great," Pittman said. "It's giving them an opportunity to get out and play and enjoy themselves instead of sitting at home watching TV or finding something around the house to tear up."
The program allows kids to take part in activities like jump rope, dancing and basketball.
But more than the activities, what April Pittman's 11-year-old son Devin Johnson enjoys most is getting out of the house.
"At home you just do the same thing," Devin said. "At camp you do different things. You hang out at the gym, go outside, play football on the swings at the park."
All of these activities are done in a safe environment. The Spring Break Experience is free and runs through Thursday at all Memphis Community Centers.
