The two best sounds of spring are birds chirping and children playing outside. When you hear those two sounds, you know that spring has arrived. Springtime is the perfect time to get outside with your family and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Explore the neighborhood park- Spring is the perfect time for families to head to the neighborhood park and not only soak up the sun but also to enjoy the newly blooming flowers and trees. You can literally spend hours in the park. Some fun park activities include a picnic lunch, flying kites, playing ball and blowing bubbles.
Visit the local museums- If you look in your local area, you probably can find several museums. There are all types of museums such as art, history, science, maritime and natural history. There are also specialty museums such as dolls, toys and agriculture and general museums as well. Some museums are free or run on donations.
Go on a family hike- Chances are that your family has sat inside watching TV most of the winter. Well, springtime is the perfect time to get out and stretch your legs. You can make a fun learning session out of hiking by pointing out the various plants, flowers and trees to your kids. Hiking also teaches kids early on in life the importance of staying healthy and being fit.
Plant a garden- When the warmer weather makes its appearance, pack up the family and head to your local garden or hardware store to get some seeds or bulbs and plant a cool garden. Your kids will love keeping an eye on the plants as they grow and your whole family will end up with some tasty fruits and vegetables to enjoy.
Sleep under the stars- One of the best memories some of us have as children is camping out in the backyard. This is something the whole family can do together simply by pitching a tent in the backyard and getting some sleeping bags and pillows.
Play in the rain- We always try and run from the rain. However, when was the last time you actually enjoyed the rain? Get the family outside to enjoy the nice warm raindrops falling on your skin.
