The weather is starting to get warmer and that means that the Spring season is on its way! I love getting outside for a large portion of the day when Spring arrives. After being stuck inside for so many cold months, there is something so freeing about spending time out in the sunshine. With each new season, I always like to make a list of activities I don’t want to miss. Lucky you, I’m going to share a list of Spring activities with you.
Here are 18 fun things to do this Spring:
1.) Go to the park.
When the weather turns warm, you will find my family at a local park most days. It is the perfect activity for my kids to get some energy out and for me to enjoy the sunshine. We have numerous parks close to our house, so we like to visit different parks each week.
2.) Jump in mud puddles.
This activity goes against everything I am as a person (neat freak, perfectionist, clean and orderly), but it brings my kids so much joy. After it has rained, let your kids jump in mud puddles. They will laugh and have THE best time! My kids always say jumping in mud puddles is super fun. Pro tip: put them in play clothes that you don’t mind getting ruined, give them rain boots to wear, and use the outdoor hose to spray them off before you let them back inside the house.
3.) Get the Spring Decocrated box.
I’m a huge home decor lover and I always look forward to receiving my Decocrated box each season. Do yourself a favor and subscribe now to grab the Spring 2022 Box - it has so many terrific pieces that will transform your house into a Spring oasis. One of my favorite items is the set of 2 ceramic birds. You can click here to read a blog post I wrote with different ways to style them.
4.) Make slime.
Another activity that my kids love that sometimes causes a mess is slime. When the weather is warm, help your young kids make slime and then send them outside so the mess stays out of your house.
5.) Enjoy the weather.
I know life can get busy and sometimes we forget to slow down. I’m challenging myself this year to make time to get outside and simply enjoy the beautiful Spring weather.
6.) Make a succulent wall.
One of my favorite projects I’ve created was a succulent wall holding pots that I can change out whenever I want. Since I’m not a person with a green thumb, succulents work for me. My husband and I built this succulent wall and hung it on our front porch. I love the look of the wall and I appreciate that very little care is needed to keep the succulents alive.
7.) Make bunny pancakes for Easter morning.
In our house, we always love to make each holiday festive. These bunny pancakes are easy to create. Just make a large circle and small circle out of the pancake batter for the body and head of the bunny. Then make oval shapes for the feet and pointy ovals for the ears. Add a slice of banana to each foot and chocolate chips for the toes. Use whip cream to make a bunny tail.
8.) Create a feature wall.
Many people like to start spring cleaning their house to get it ready for warmer temperatures; that is a perfect time to try your hand at a DIY project. Feature walls are very beginner-friendly, easy on the budget, and don’t take a lot of time to create. Plus they make a huge impact in any room.
9.) Relax outside.
Maybe my favorite activity is sitting outside in the sunshine and relaxing. I love to take my coffee outside in the mornings and enjoy the warm weather. Or sometimes I’ll sit and relax outside while my kids play on the swingset.
10.) Plant some flowers.
Many people relax by gardening and planting flowers. Get your yard ready for spring by planting flowers of many different colors.
11.) Ride a bike.
Get some physical activity in and go for a bike ride. I have fond memories of riding my bike all around the neighborhood when I was a kid and I still enjoy riding a bike to this day.
12.) Try food truck treats.
The warmer months mean that food trucks are out in abundance. I’ve always enjoyed the food that we’ve tried from different food trucks. So put on your adventurous hat and go try some different foods. More often than not you will be supporting local businesses when you do.
13.) Visit a petting zoo/safari park.
Grab the kids and take them to where the animals are! Petting zoos are lots of fun for little ones because they can feed and pet the animals.
14.) Grab a snow cone.
One of my favorite warm-weather treats is a snow cone. Enjoy some sugary goodness and perhaps a walk around town.
15.) Create a flower arrangement.
Spring makes me want to add flowers all over my house; the colors are so pretty. Since real flowers don’t last in a vase long, I prefer to use faux flowers and greenery for decor. I created this flower arrangement using the lattice crate from the Spring 2019 box with some faux peonies and lavender stems.
16.) Visit state parks.
Take a short day trip/road trip and visit the natural beauty that state parks offer. We live close to Natural Bridge and have always enjoyed our visits there.
17.) Feed some ducks.
We have a really awesome duck pond close by with tons of ducks. When the weather gets warm, our family loves to visit and take old bread to feed the ducks. My children always laugh and giggle as they feed the ducks.
18.) Make s’mores.
Build a fire outside and roast marshmallows to create s’mores. We like to make s’mores with both Hershey’s chocolate and Reese’s peanut butter cups. YUMMY!
I hope you enjoyed this list of fun activities. How many do you think you will do?
