Spring officially kicks off March 20th which means longer day light hours and warmer temps. Being cooped up in the house during the winter months can cause a little cabin fever. So it’s safe to say both parents and kids are ready to get out into the world.

Once you’re under the warmth of springtime weather what activities can you do? The answer is – many things! And most will cost you next to nothing. Below are 10 fun things you can do with the kids during the spring.

Blow bubbles


I don’t know about your kids but mine LOVE bubbles. They break out a yell and will chase them around for hours. Do your self a favor and get an automatic bubble machine. Just keep watch that the kids don’t tip it over. Check out this one.

Take a walk

One of the best things to do is just walking around your neighborhood or even going to a nearby park and taking a walk together. Extra points because it’s exercise and you can count your steps.

Start a garden


This could also be fun to get the grandparents involved. Teaching the kids about how gardens work. They will feel a sense of accomplishment as they care for their garden and see them grow. Looking for some garden inspiration check out 10 different projects here.

Plant a butterfly garden

You will be able to see butterflies well into the summer season. Not sure what plants to pick when starting your garden, check out the info here.

Playing in the rain together


Springtime means rain showers. Kids are drawn to puddles, so put on some rain boots and have fun. If you like a less messy approach you can always grab an umbrella and run in the rain.

Have a picnic

Pick one of your favorite parks, take a blanket, the kids favorite snacks and just enjoy nature.


Visit a Botanical Garden or Nature preserve 


Something about seeing the beauty of outside makes you calm. So grab your camera and take some great pics of the kids.

Finger Painting outdoors

Kids love to get messy. Playing outdoors keeps the mess out of the house and creativity flowing

Draw with sidewalk chalk


Your little artist can use their imagination and you can teach them a quick game of Hop Scotch or other old-school outdoor games.

Participate in a spring clean up within your community

Volunteering together as a family not only brings your closer but also helps you think about others as well.

Ask your children what activities they would love to do this spring. You could then create a poster with the activities that your children would like to accomplish. Just remember it doesn’t matter what activities you do, as long as you do them together.
