It’s finally starting to feel like spring and we’re delighted to spend more time outdoors. Today we’ve put together a list of our favourite spring activities to break the winter blues.
Plant Something Green
Spring is a time for renewal and growth and the perfect time to plant something in the ground! Whether it’s a few flowers for some colour or fruits and vegetables for summer eating, enjoy the sunshine and renewable energy. If you’re looking for something fun to do with little ones, start some seeds in soil pellets or small pots and watch them grow!
Head to the Park for a Picnic
It’s finally sunny and warming up, and it’s the perfect time to enjoy the sunshine outdoors. Grab a blanket and a few toys for the park, and head out to soak up some rays and enjoy a meal together as a family. We can’t wait to try these Quick & Easy Walking Tacos from Eating on a Dime – the kids will love them!
Or maybe you’d like to get away for an afternoon of fun. Whether it’s hanging with your best buds or enjoying a little romance with your partner, these Tips for a Perfect Spring Cheeseboard from The Edit are the perfect portable snack to pack.
And don’t forget the Eucalan Wipes for spills and messes that need quick treating!
Fly a Kite
While you’re in the park, what better activity is there than flying a kite? We found some great tutorials on Pinterest for building your own kites, but we especially love this DIY Fabric Kite tutorial from Zest it Up! Build your kite before you head to the park (or the beach) and watch it soar in the air. A slightly breezy day is best for this one!
Visit a Farm to see the Animals
Do you live near a farm or a zoo? Spring means babies! Head out to see those brand new babies before they grow up. Or if you can’t get out to see the baby animals, bring them to your living room. Check out the Zooborns Instagram account which shares the most adorable baby animals from zoos and aquariums worldwide!
Shopping at Farmers’ Markets
Spring and summer mean fabulous produce. Find farmers’ markets near you to take advantage of the bounty of the season, then head home and try a new spring recipe or two! We’re drooling over these Asparagus and Brie Puff Pastries with Thyme Honey from Half Baked Harvest, this Spring Pasta Primavera with Lemon Ricotta from Our Salty Kitchen, and this delicious looking Spring Salad from Proud Italian Cook.
Bring Spring Flowers Indoors
Brighten up your home with the lovely sights and smells of spring. Whether you cut a bouquet from your garden or purchase one from a local florist, add some freshness to any room with a beautiful floral arrangement. We just love this Early Spring Vignette from Stone Gable.
We hope that we’ve given you a bit of inspiration for making the most of your spring. Looking for more ideas? We’ve got a Pinterest board full of spring activities for you and your little ones to try!
