Winter, I wish I could say I was sorry to see you go, but I’m just not. Snow is so beautiful, but after months of being trapped in the house, I’m just over it. If you are in the northeast, it may not feel like winter is over with all of the snow on the ground and more in the forecast, not to mention the temperatures feeling like January! But really, spring is around the corner! Here are 10 Spring Activities for Kids Bucket List Plus Printable Calendar to get you going once the weather allows!
10 Spring Activities for Kids Bucket List
If the weather is cooperating where you are and you’re not stuck inside anymore, you’re probably wondering what to do. There are so many outdoor activities to pick from, it can be hard to choose just one. I narrowed it down to a few favorites so you can get started celebrating spring with these 10 Spring Activities for Kids.
One of the great pleasures of warm weather is dining outdoors. Pack up a picnic and head to a beautiful park, or even your backyard. Soak up those sun rays and enjoy the warmth while you eat a delicious meal.
- Plant a Garden
Watching the plants spring back to life is one the best parts about spring. Have you ever planted a garden? If not, why not give it a try? Spend a lazy afternoon or two digging in the dirt, and get ready to see your hard work pay off.
- Take a Hike
While you’re headed outdoors, why not get some exercise in? Go for a hike, and get a great view of nature while you’re doing it. There are so many different sights to see, and you’ll have a front-row view of them all.
- Go on a Nature Hunt
If you’re looking to entertain children while you’re on your hike, set up a nature hunt for them. Take a moment to research the area you are heading to, and give them items that are easy to cross off of their lists. Make this an activity the whole family can enjoy.
- Tea Party
What says spring like being out on the lawn with a pretty teapot and an amazing snack? Set up a tea party and prepare to be as formal or as casual as you like. You can also use this time to show little ones how to properly host an event, for an added bonus.
- Hop on a Bike
This is one of my childhood favorites! While you’re on a bicycle, the wind is rushing through your hair, and you’re getting lots of fresh air. Riding a bike will give you a great chance to get some outdoors time, some exercise, and enjoy a view of your area from something other than your car window.
- Go Down to the Lake
You can appreciate the spring much better from the shore of a lake. Go out and breathe in the scenery, and get your toes wet. Make sure to bring the sunscreen and something yummy to nibble on!
- Do a Craft
With all of the flowers blooming, and the great items you’ll bring home from your nature walks, you’re going to have everything you need to put together a great spring craft. Learn to dry flowers, arrange found items, and enjoy yourself.
- Pitch a Tent
With the weather warming up, there’s no reason why you can’t spend an evening outdoors. Get a tent and pitch it, and spend the night “roughing it” in your own backyard. Gaze up at the stars and appreciate nature on a whole new level.
- Get in a Kayak
If you have never been kayaking, you are missing out. There’s an amazing view of the water, and you’ll feel completely at one with nature from the seat of your kayak. Gliding across the water is a peaceful experience you won’t soon forget.
You have been cooped up in that house long enough. Get yourself a list of spring activities for kids and go out to try something new this spring. You will be more than happy that you did.
