5 Fun Spring Activities for Kids

Spring is one of my very favorite times of year- the landscape is beautiful, the weather is getting nicer, and everything is in bloom. There are also so many fun things to do. Today, I’d like to share some fun things you and your children can do during the spring season.

1. Spring picnic

Grab a quilt, a basket, your favorite snacks and head to your favorite spot, be it a local park or even your own backyard. It is a lot of fun and doesn’t cost a lot. You can also picnic regularly and visit a different spot each time, or maybe even have themed picnics and change up your menu. There are lots of fun possibilities.

2. Spring arts and crafts

There are so many fun things you can make and do for spring. You can make a birdhouse, bird prints, mixed media flowers, and so much more. The possibilities are endless and you can choose from so many fun ideas.

3. Nature scavenger hunt

Take a walk outside- at a park, around your neighborhood, or even in your own yard- and see what you can find. Look for birds, small animals, insects, leaves, flowers, and much more. We like to walk down to our neighbor’s pond and look for turtles.

4. Nature walk

Spend some time walking on your favorite trail- it doesn’t matter where. You don’t have to look for anything specific, or even have a motive. Just enjoy the trail and being outside. We have several very nice trails not far from our home, and this winter, I want to create our own trail on our property.

5. Read a book about nature

Sit down with your favorite kiddo and your favorite book. There are so many fun books about spring and farming you can read- we love “The Tiny Seed” by Eric Carle, “Planting a Rainbow” by Lois Elhert and also “Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt” by Kate Messner. You can read “The Tiny Seed” and plant some seeds to watch, or read a book about birds and spend some time watching a bird feeder. So many fun possibilities.

What are your go-to spring ideas for fun with your family?
