Spring activities can be a healthy and active way for your family to bond. Don’t miss these 10 ideas for seasonal activities that you can do outside.

We did it! We got past the winter slog, and now we can find opportunities to get outside of the house and be active. I have to admit that as a parent it can sometimes feel overwhelming when the weather starts to warm. Kids want to do all sorts of activities outside to celebrate. Yet, don’t fret; below, we have 10 healthy spring activities for the entire family to enjoy.

Abundant sunshine, longer days, and road trips are finally here! Here are some fun spring activity ideas you can implement to keep everyone healthy, active, and smiling.

Mini-Golf

It’s time to put your putt-putt skills to the test! Take your family to the nearest mini-golf course if you want to jump-start the spring season. There is perhaps nothing more exciting to a kid than playing mini-golf with the family.

Play Hide N’ Seek

Who doesn’t love this classic game? Springtime means you can head outside for an epic, neighborhood round of hide-and-seek! 

Nature Walk

Spring weather is the perfect time to trek outside and explore your surroundings. What State Park have you not visited yet? What forest demands a scenic stroll? Studies have shown that spending time in nature is an antidote for stress.

Picnic in the Park

When’s the last time you’ve been on a picnic? Ride your bikes to a picnic spot in the park. Pack a Frisbee, bring the family dog, and maybe a special treat as a fun picnic surprise. If you’re looking for some yummy treats to pack, check out Healthy Fruit Snacks Kids Love.

Yard Work Games

This is such a clever parenting trick to turn a chore into fun! But you can indeed turn spring clean-up into an exciting family fitness activity. This could be a speed run to see which family member completes their separate chores the fastest. Working as a team can be fun when washing windows and planting flower seeds!

Play Basketball

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world, and for good reason! Do you ever ask yourself why basketball players are so fit and healthy? It’s because of the regular exercise and health benefits of playing basketball. Also, basketball allows many people to deal with their emotions and to keep their minds calm.

Plant a Garden

Speaking of seeds, consider planting a garden together as a family! Pick out seed packets together, and then prepare your garden for growing as a family. Small pots on a windowsill or even reusing an egg carton to start seedlings is a great project. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, it’s a great learning experience and a way to celebrate the earth together. 

Star Gaze

One of my favorite spring activities! An outdoor deck is a perfect spot, but a blanket on the ground will do well. If your neighborhood is too bright at night, travel to a rural location to enjoy this new tradition!

Go Cycling

Taking up cycling can be one of the best decisions you’ll make in life. Whether you choose to hop on a bike for health reasons, help the environment, try a new activity, or even supplement another sport, cycling is a ton of fun. After some time on the bike, your family may find that the only downside to cycling is that it can be addictive!

Fly a Kite

Every child should have the experience of flying a kite at least once. Teaching children how to fly a kite in a big open field is a great way to make precious memories.
