Spring has officially started and I couldn’t be more excited. If your children are anything like mine, they are probably itching to do something fun after being cooped up all winter. I’ve put together a list of 10 spring activities for toddlers that will help you and your little ones get the most out of the season.
Picnic: On a nice dry day, get outside and have a picnic. You can have your picnic at the park or in your backyard.
Fly a kite: If you have a good empty field or a large park, you can fly a kite. You can also fly kites at the beach (our personal favorite).
Go on a nature walk: Check out the offerings at your local park for guided nature walks or just go through the park on your own. If you have an arboretum, check out their activities for kids.
Visit the zoo: Check out your zoo’s website to see which animals might be having babies. Check out the farm animals to see baby chicks and rabbits.
Pick fruit at u-pick (late spring): Now that the temperatures are getting warmer, fresh fruit will be popping up. Strawberries can be found in the spring depending on where you are located.
Go to a tulip farm: During the month of April, tulips are at their peak in the PNW. Go to the tulip farm to see the fields of tulips and bring a bunch home.
Plant a garden: Have your little ones help you dig holes for plants and seeds. Make it extra fun by letting them help water.
Scavenger Hunt: Create a list of items and go outside on a scavenger hunt to find them.
Sidewalk Chalk Art Gallery: Grab a box of sidewalk chalk. Grab a stretch of sidewalk and do different pictures.
Splash in Puddles: Get out the boots and go outside. Find the puddles and see who can make stomp and make the biggest splash.
