Spring is here and that means the flowers are blooming, the air is fresh, and you’ve switched from hot to iced coffee. Here are our top five favorite activities to do with your kids this spring, organized by age.
3 and Under
Spring is often accompanied by many rainy days. Use those days for some fun spring crafts with your kids indoors. We love this Footprint Flower Pot idea from Crafty Morning!
Make play dough! If your kids are a little too advanced for the craft above, but you still need to entertain them on a rainy day, this is a perfect baking and crafting combo. Let them help you bake the play dough, and they’ll love playing with it even more. Get creative with this homemade play dough recipe from I Heart Nap Time.
7- 10 Years
Pick and press flowers. Take the beauty of nature home with you. Let your kids have fun picking flowers outside, and then go home to press them. Check out this guide to pressing flowers from 5 Minutes for Mom.
10 and Up
Explore new passions. Photography is a fun way for your kids to experience the outdoors and get artsy at the same time. Phones double as great cameras these days, or you can go old-school and pick up a vintage film camera from a consignment shop. Either way, hand over the reins and let them have fun.
Have a picnic. When the sun does come out, get outside and soak it in! Grab a blanket and some snacks, and enjoy the beautiful spring weather. Perfect for babies and older children alike. If your kids are school aged or older you may want to bring a ball or frisbee for them to enjoy too.
