I LOVE LOVE spring!!!!! Everything feels new again and I’m so excited to get out of the house and do fun things with my family. If your like me, you want to do everything right now and I don’t want to forget my ideas, so I love to have a list so I can check them off. I guess you can say that this is my families spring bucket list!!! I hope you can find some fun ideas for your family too.
1. Dutch Oven Cooking: We live close to a lake and several Sunday afternoons, after church, we all gather down at the lake for Sunday Dinner.
2. Hot Dog Roast: This is so simple. You can do it at a campground, backyard or even in your fireplace. The kids will love it because it’s out of the ordinary.
3. Let’s go fly a kite. Spring screams kite season!!! You can get a cheap one at the Dollar store or even let your kids make one out of a store plastic bag.
4. Art Day: Take the whole family outside with a big box of chalk and express yourself!!!
5. Ice cream in a bag: https://www.loulougirls.com/2013/06/04/summer-ice-cream-in-bag-great-family/
6. Plant a flower: Kids love to watch things grow, especially if they have had a hand in the process.
7. Paper Airplane Competition: Take your old newspaper and let everyone make their own plane, and see who’s plane can go the farthest.
8. Scavenger Hunt: When my kids get bored when a friend comes over, I always make them a scavenger hunt. Even older kids love this!https://www.loulougirls.com/2013/05/30/summer-scavenger-hun/
9. Bug Hunt: The Dollar Store sells bags of bugs!!! Scatter them around the yard and let them find the bugs.
10. Picnic: You can even have a picnic in your backyard or even inside if it’s raining!!!
11. Puddle jumping: Spring brings rain showers and great for puddle jumping.  My girls LOVE to do this!!
12. Feed the ducks: We have a pond at one of our parks that is full of ducks. Get a bag of old bread and feed the ducks!!
13. Investigate a crime: Set up a crime scene and leave clues for your kids to find. Let your cute little detectives do their job!
14. Camp out: Set up a tent in the backyard and if its warm enough, sleep out, and if it’s not make a tent inside.
15. Go on a Hike: Explore your area. Even small kids like to explore new things.
16. Get Crafty: Go on a walk and let the kiddos collect things; leaves, rocks, flowers, grass, twigs, etc., and then let them create!
17. Dollar Store Crafts: I love the Dollar Store!! They have so many little crafts for your kids to do and everything only costs a dollar!!
18. Local Museums: Visit a local museum, even if it’s not a children museum, kids love to learn!
19. Make your own bubbles: Fun to make and fun to pop!!http://www.wikihow.com/Make–Bubble-Solution
20. Dig for Dinosaurs: Freeze plastic dinosaurs in a bowl of colored water. Pop the frozen dome onto a baking sheet. Let the kids spray the dome with water to discover the dinosaurs. Good clean fun and they will love it.https://www.loulougirls.com/2013/05/22/personal-progress-activity-lets-go-to/

  1. Fun! I have two fairly quiet girls, and we have friends with boys. Boy's boys. Loud, rambunctious, energetic boys! Great kids, but our house is definitely not "boy ready". I think I'll get some of the bugs and dinosaurs you mentioned and keep them on hand fir bug hunts, dino digging (I'll bury them outside) and scavenger hunts! Thank you!

  2. Last year was the first time my family and I attended Our Kid's World Fun Fest in West Palm Beach and we had a really great time. I recently found out the event is happening on Saturday April 26 & Sunday 27 and that I can even get FREE tickets for the kids online. Not only are my kids excited about this event but they are eagerly looking forward to meeting their favorite Nickelodeon characters. Here is the link where I accessed free kids tickets http://www.adayforkids.com/free-kids-ticket.cfm or you can visit their website http://www.adayforkids.com for more event details.
