Winter blues, be gone!
Spring is on its way and we can’t wait to get outside and enjoy blossoming flowers, fresh sunshine and all new family fun!
Looking for ways to get out and about this spring season? Take a peek at our list of five spring activities for kids and families!
1. Go On a Family Hike Somewhere New!
Enjoy the great outdoors during the new spring season when you go on a hike with your family. Take to Google and take a peek at what outdoor and nature trails are near you – we bet you’ll be surprised with how many are nearby!
Hiking will not only help your little ones burn off the built-up energy, but also help you check off that daily workout goal! Win-win.
2. Make The Most of Rainy Days
Ah, the inevitable spring rainy day. Brighten up the day with some easy-peasy fun at home!
We’re talking fort-building, cookie and cupcake baking, DIY science experiments and just about any Pinterest pin you can think of.
Going stir crazy and need to get out of the house? We feel you. Load up the kids and head down to Port Discovery for an entire day of indoor play – and a nap-filled ride home.
3. Read Books About Spring!
Swap out your current picture books for ones that celebrate the spring season your growing reader can enjoy!
Don’t have any spring-themed books lying around? No worries! Just head to your Local Library and enjoy a wide selection your kiddo can choose from!
Here are few springtime reads your kiddo will be sure to love:
- There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed A Frog by Lucille Colandro
- Let It Rain by Maryann Cocca-Leffler
- Grow Flower, Grow! by Lisa Bruce
- When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes
4. Enjoy Easy-Peasy Spring Crafts
Spring is one of the prettiest seasons – making for super colorful and fun crafts you can do at home with your kiddos!
Pinterest is the place for DIY ideas – and we’ve got a great board on Arts & Crafts at Home!
Here are just a few of the spring-time-themed crafts you can find on our Pinterest Board:

5. Plan an All New Family Adventure!
A new season (plus warmer weather!) calls for all new family fun, memories and adventure.
Make a goal this year to visit one new place each month as a family – and what better time to start than spring? Whether you explore a different local park, venture over to a new local library or try a new outdoor activity or sport – new family memories your kiddos will remember forever will be made!
You can also make plans to head down to Port Discovery this spring and enjoy special events like Youth Arts Month, Springing in Spring: Spring Break Week presented by WR Grace, Puppet Powered Weekend and more! See the full spring event line-up here.
