Fun Spring Activities for the Family
Are you ready to be let outside into the warm, beautiful weather after a relatively cold winter? I know we are! We’ve compiled a list of fun spring activities for the family incase you need some inspiration.
–Get planting! Start a family garden. It’s a great way to teach your children how to grow their own food and take care of plants.
–Have a picnic! Whether you’re in your own yard or you prepare a basket of goodies and take it to a local park- nothing beats a good picnic. Spring is the best time to do one, as the Summer months can definitely make things uncomfortable with enough heat.
–Bikeride! No more snow, ice and cold temperatures to keep you off the wheels. Get that fresh air in your hair and lungs with some quality exercise. It’s so fun it doesn’t even feel like a workout!
–Hunt for Crocus. It shouldn’t be hard to find if you’re in Scituate – but crocus are the first spring flowers to make their appearance. Walk around the yard, or your local surroundings and see if you can spot the beautiful purple bursts of color!
–Outside tables! Are you going out to eat for lunch or dinner? If the restaurant offers outdoor seating, take advantage!
–Visit Dalby Farm on the May 7th Spring Hatch Celebration or on an Open Farm Day! Shameless plug – but can you think of a better season to stroll the property and greet the animals? They’d love to see you!
–Fly a kite! If you’re on the South Shore, why aren’t you on a beach flying a kite right now? Okay, maybe it’s not always windy but your odds are good! That’s some good ol’ fashioned fun right there.
–Find a playground. Whether you’re 5, 15, or 50, everyone can enjoy a playground!
–Chalk. One of my favorite things to do when I was younger was sit outside in the warm sun and draw designs on the driveway in chalk. I’d enjoy them for days! Every rain was just another excuse to go back out and do some more 🙂
–Farmer’s Market. Many Farmer’s markets start up in June. This is a great way to connect with local businesses in your town and socialize with other kids and parents. The quality of the products being sold are usually a step above as well!
–Just sit and watch. Look at the bees getting to work, watch the rain pitter patter, listen to the birds sing, observe the budding trees and plants. Appreciate your surroundings and the beauty in the world that we have the honor of living with.
We hope you and your family take advantage of our beautiful planet!
