Now that the weather is finally warming up, there are so many more options for fun activities to enjoy with your kids. Spring is a great time to head outside and see what all nature has to offer while letting the warm, bright sunshine warm your spirit. Whether you take on gardening, have a garden tea party, do a spring photoshoot in a flower field, or tackle a number of other spring activities, you and your kids are sure to have a blast together.
Gardens can be a fun activity for anyone, no matter your age, so taking on gardening with your kids just makes sense. Gardening is fun for kids for a number of reasons: kids love to learn by getting their hands dirty, they’re stimulated by bright colors and spending time outdoors, and they’ll gain tons of useful life skills. Even better, they can help you take care of a sustainable food source in your own backyard! Have your kids help you pick out flowers or vegetables to grow in the garden, and let them help you till the ground and dig holes as well. Then, spread new soil, plant the foliage, water your garden daily, and watch it grow!
If you enjoy fishing, or even if you haven’t done it before, try it out with your kids this spring! Be sure to research the proper ways to handle fishing gear, bait hooks, and remove fish from your line after being caught. Fishing is a great activity to teach your kids patience and to help them relax and unwind. It’s also a ton of fun and can be super rewarding, especially if you’re planning to eat your catch for dinner.
A garden tea party is perfect for the little ones in your life, and you can make it as simple or as extravagant as you’d like. If you’re opting for a larger event, invite some friends. Your kids can get crafty and create their own whimsical invitations for it. Spread out blankets and pillows for seating, and gather all the flowers you can find for decoration! For tea party snacks, try these pastel party sandwiches, chicken salad bites, or strawberry brownie skewers. If your kids are picky or you want a smaller event, they’ll have just as much fun with goldfish, a few veggies, and their closest stuffed animals at the tea party.
Whether you head out on forest trails or the neighborhood blacktop, your kids will love going out biking with you. Research the bike paths in your area, and choose one which best suits your purposes. If you don’t want to pack up the bikes for a trip, design your own bike challenge course at home! You can use chalk, jump ropes, buckets, and more to line your DIY bike course. See who can weave between the buckets or cones the best and who can complete the challenge course the fastest.
Getting family photos or photos of your kids can be rather difficult at times. Take away the pressure and have fun with the experience. Bring the whole family to a flower field to take some beautiful photos. If you’re confident enough, use your own camera to take all pressure and time constraints off. Focus on capturing your kids having fun and enjoying the flower fields. These joyful candid photos will be treasured for years to come.
After a fun day out with your kids, you want a clean and comfortable home to return to.
