Spring break, which runs from April 6 to 15 this year, may inspire images of beachside resorts and other fun-filled family vacations, but let us not forget—New York City is a wonderful place to be when the kids have time off. In addition to our round-ups of Easter activities, Passover events and mini-camps taking place during the school holiday, we've put together a list of free activities for every single day the kids are out of class.
