4 Sensational Springtime Activities to Enjoy with Kids
What is it about springtime that is so darn magical? Maybe it has to do with the fact that everything seems to be coming back to life after a long, cold winter. For many parts of the world, the weather is warming…the days are longer…which means more time in the day to keep kids occupied.
Because spring is a great time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, we’ve come up with 4 of our favorite springtime activities that you and your kids will love.
Plant a Garden
Spring is the perfect time to plant a garden with your children! Gardening helps little ones learn about the life cycle of plants, the different types of plants and flowers that grow during this season, and how to take care of them.
Let your littles get in on the process of choosing what to plant and where to plant it. This is a great way to teach your kids about responsibility and the importance of taking care of the environment.
And don’t worry about turning your entire backyard into a garden. Check out this article with plenty of tips and instructions for starting an easy container garden.
Plan a Picnic
Spring is the perfect time to have a picnic with your kid! You can pack a basket full of sandwiches, fruits, and snacks and head to a nearby park, beach, or some other scenic location. This is a great way to spend some quality time with your children and enjoy the beautiful weather. You can also bring along some outdoor games like frisbee or catch to keep your kids entertained.

Fly a Kite
There’s something so nostalgic about flying a kite with your kids, and it’s an activity many children have never experienced. Do yourself a favor and wait for a windy day before heading to a park or an open field to fly your kite.
