Spring is finally here and that means it’s time for kids to get a well-deserved break from virtual learning.

March 11 marked the one-year anniversary since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Daily life changed for millions as businesses were shuttered, students had to resort to virtual learning and adults adjusted to working from home.

Spring break for many usually means family vacations and parties on the beach, but during a time when millions of people have died across the globe due to a new virus, vacations are taking on a new form.

As mass vaccinations continue to roll out throughout the country and world, health experts are continuing to caution people against letting their guards down prematurely when it comes to preventative health measures such as social distancing and mask-wearing.

So even though spring break might not look the same this year, what better way to enjoy family time together than by watching shows and movies fun for the whole family from the safety and comfort of your own homes?

Tubi offers thousands of titles to keep kids entertained during their spring vacation.
