Fun Activities to Do This Spring

50 Fun Activities to Do This Spring for Less

It is Spring! That glorious time of year where the weather is hopefully neither too hot nor too cold. So What should you be doing to celebrate these few months of pleasant weather before it’s summer? I have put together a list of a lot of family-friendly ideas that you can do on your own, with your spouse or as a family.

1. Go for a walk, especially in nature.

2. visit and feed some ducks

3.go on a picnic. When the weather is beautiful, it’s an excellent opportunity to go on a picnic and enjoy your meal outdoors.

4. Take a hike

5. Go to the park.

6.  Go to the movies (spring and summer are a great time to do this as there are so many movies coming to theaters, exceptionally family-friendly options. We like to go in the mornings so that we only have to pay matinee prices or we go to the discount theater which plays movies that have been out for a while. The less we spend, the more often we can go.)

7. Blow some bubbles, especially fun when you have little kids

8. Make a bird feeder. Here is a super easy one to make with kids. My daughter loves doing projects like this. Find the directions here.
