Spring is all about being outside and enjoying the extra hour of sunshine. You don’t have to go anywhere to do that, but you do have to get out of the house.
Eat outside on a patio. This is even better if your patio has a playground nearby. Chick-fil-A has the nicest, cleanest playgrounds around.
Go to the park. On the pretty days of Spring make a point to actually go to a park at least once a week. Let the kids run around while you soak up some sun.
April Showers Bring May Flowers, so grab an umbrella and play in the rain. Grab your camera and take pictures of it. We actually have one of those fun umbrellas with faces on it, so I like to use that one for pictures. Click on the picture to purchase that exact umbrella.
Go for a walk or park a few spaces further out. Most of us have put on a few pounds over the cold and dreary Winter. Spring is a good time to put a few extra steps in your routine.
Plant flowers. Kids love this, and they really do perk things up around your home. Vintage teacups make adorable planters.
Go for a bike ride, grab the wagon or scooter and get moving.
Grab a blanket and take a nap in the sunshine.
Do homework or read outside.
Plan or go to an Easter Egg Hunt.
Fly a kite.
Get out the sidewalk chalk. Draw game, pictures or funny messages for your friends.
Play with water. Water plants, paint with water or just sprinkle some around.
Bird watch. There are lots of nests this time of year and lots of birds migrating back North. If you provide a water source, you will be surprised what all comes and visits.
If you have a fire pit light it up one evening and grab some blankets. We usually invite over some friends or neighbors and hang out until it gets dark.
Take the kids to a new playground. Go to a park in a different part of town or a school where your kids haven’t played. Something different is always fun.
Buy flowers from the store. Trader Joe’s has some beautiful daffodils and tulips right now. They are beautiful and make it instantly feel like Spring.
Take the kids to the ice cream store and eat outside.
Buy some Shamrocks. They are available at most grocery stores this time of year.
Go ahead and start your garden. Sprout your own seedlings. Here is a site to help you get started.
Get outside and have fun!
