Spring is here! Finally, we can leave our winter coats behind, step into nature, and enjoy the nice weather. If you’re looking for ways to get out of the house with the family this season, check out these fun outdoor family activities for the spring.
Go On a Nature Hike
There’s no better way to connect with nature than by taking a relaxing and fun hike through the wilderness! If there’s a forest trail or state park near you, consider taking the family there for a weekend hike among nature when everything is in bloom and returning to life.
Plus, there are numerous games you can have the kids play if they get bored walking around. You can have everyone pick their favorite flowers, collect fascinating rocks, or come up with a nature-filled scavenger hunt.
Plant a Fruit Tree in the Backyard
Do you want to make something with your family that you’ll be able to look back on for years? Consider planting a fruit tree in your backyard! Spring is the ideal time to plant plum and other fruit trees, and you can watch as it grows and bears fruit for years.
Fruit trees are relatively simple to plant, whether you consider yourself a green thumb or not. And you can turn caring for the tree into a family activity. As the tree and your kids grow over the years, you’ll be able to look in your backyard and remember that spring day when you planted it as a family.
Have a Family Picnic
Who doesn’t love a spring picnic? Spend an afternoon relaxing on a comfy blanket when the sun is warm, and the air is cool with the people you care about the most. On a lovely Sunday, pack a picnic and take the family to the park or your backyard to enjoy the beautiful spring day outside.
Pro tip: Entertain the kids during the picnic by bringing a kite on a breezy day.
Create Some Chalk Art
The snow has melted away, and the spring rains have cleaned the streets and sidewalks of winter’s salt, sand, and grime. Now, it’s time to add some color to your sidewalk or driveway with some chalk art!
Chalk art is an affordable way to spend time outside with the family and kids when the weather turns nice. Make it a family art show by having everyone create something or play games like hopscotch!
After being cooped up inside all winter, we can finally break out of our homes and enjoy nice weather. Whether you want to go on a hike, have a picnic, or plant a tree, there are plenty of fun outdoor family activities for the spring!
