Spring is right around the corner – finally! Towards the end of winter, kids get antsy after staying indoors for too long. Snow days can be fun, but we long for sunshine and warmth and shedding bulky winter coats.
It’s time to get outside and spend quality time together. Read on for five activities for the whole family to enjoy together.
5 Fun Spring Activities:
On a warm day, take the opportunity enjoy lunch outdoors. Pack a basket full of your family’s favorite foods, then head to a nearby park or even just your own backyard. Bring along a blanket, chairs, and maybe some toys or games to play. Don’t forget the sunscreen – skin is particularly fragile after long winters.
Take the family to a DIY pottery painting studio. Let your kid choose a piece to paint such as a piggy bank or plate. Adults will enjoy channeling their inner artist too. Most people find it relaxing. The best part is that the mess won’t be in your house.
Go on an outdoor treasure hunt with Geocache – or create your own if you’re feeling crafty. Use your phone to find a nearby location where other people have hidden objects in a container. Ask your kids to find a small toy in their room that they wouldn’t mind giving up – you’re supposed to replace an item that you find at a Geocache location. This is a great way to get some exercise and explore your own neighborhood.
Go to the zoo
Most cities have a zoo nearby and this is always a favorite day trip for both kids and adults. You won’t have to do much besides walking around with your very excited kiddo. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes.
Have a movie night
Relax and watch a movie after an active day outdoors. Having a movie night at home is simple, but always fun for all. Plus it’s budget-friendly. Choose a family-friendly film, pop some popcorn, and have everyone get cozy in their PJs.
