25 Things To Do This Spring with your Family

25 Things To Do This Spring With Your Family | Cocktails with Mom

Spring is drawing closer even though I know a lot of people are still in snowy weather, but it will be here before you know it!  I’ve been trying to think of some fun activities I could do with my family and friends to enjoy the nice weather and get outside a little.  I thought it would be fun to make a jar filled with ideas so when we had time or just needed a push with an idea we could just draw one out!  Most of these you could do on the weekend or during the summer when the kids are out of school!  All of them are fun activities to get your whole family involved!

1. Plant something green (herbs, small vegetables, or flowers)

2. Have a picnic in the park

3. Go to the zoo

4. Take a hike at a local park or a state park

5. Visit a Farm to see the animals

6. Feed the ducks at a pond or lake

7. Draw pictures on the sidewalk with chalk

8. Find somewhere to pick fresh strawberries or other berries

9. Make s’mores on the grill or fire pit

10. Go star gazing and learn about the different constellations

11. Go goecaching and find some treasures

12. Read a good book together either inside or outside

13. Go bowling

14. Go to the beach if there is one near you or make an inside beach party

15. Spend a Saturday morning at a Local Farmers Market

16. Go to an Aquarium

17. Go swimming at a local pool or lake

18. Have a movie day inside with snacks

19. Try a new family friendly recipe and get everyone involved

20. Go fishing

21. Make a homemade bird feeder and hang it up outside near a window where you can watch it

22. Go fly a kite on a windy day

23. Play hide and seek or capture the flag at night (capture the flag is fun at night if you use glow sticks)

24. Make homemade ice cream either with a maker or in a bag

25. Make a fun family friendly craft

To help you get started I have made a fun printable with all of the activities on it that you can cut out and put in a jar.  I have also made a page of blank cut outs so that you can add things that your family wants to do this spring or summer!  You could even combine some of these if you want.  Like go pick strawberries and then come home and make strawberry ice cream.

I printed it out for myself and cut out all the slips.

Then I folded them up and put them in a mason jar so  I’ll be ready the minute it gets warm to start adventuring with family and friends!

  1. Helen says:

    What a fun idea! We’d definitely need to change some of those, but some are things we don’t do very often and would really look forward to doing again.

  2. Cynthia R says:

    I can’t wait for spring, it has been a horrible winter, all these activities will be a nice change.

  3. That is a nice list. I like the night game idea a lot.

  4. Amy Orvin says:

    That’s a wonderful and fun list. I’d love to go to the zoo or an aquarium this spring.

  5. Mary Happymommy says:

    So many great ideas on that list! I especially like the idea of visiting a farm to see the animals.

  6. nicole dziedzic says:

    We love going to the farm and having the kids pet the animals, and we also buy there milk and ice cream they have there that they make themselves.

  7. Janet W. says:

    Fun activities to do with my grandsons! Thanks for the ideas!

  8. Julie Wood says:

    Going to a local Farmer’s Market is so cool, ours just opened, and the food items are amazing. Also going to the park and and seeing the flowers blooming and seeing the ducks is fun. Thanks for a list of so many ideas!
