#1. See Some Baby Animals
Spring is the perfect time of year to visit a pet farm, to see all the cute baby animals. Kids might even be able to help out with feeding the young lambs or calves.
#2. Play in the Rain
Don’t be afraid to get right out in the middle of a rainy day. Walk, run, skip, or dance through the droplets. Here’s our Top Ten Things to do Outside in the Rain & Galoshingly Good Rainy Day Activities for Kids Outdoors.
Blowing bubbles should lead to giggles! Use different blowers for a range of bubbly fun.
When all the bubbles are used up, why not try making your own bubble mix using washing-up liquid, sugar and water.
#4. Head to the Beach
A trip to the beach is always a fun day out, no matter what the season! We always make a mermaid on the beach, drawing an outline then using seaweed for her hair and stones and shells to decorate her tail.
Why not collect some stones and paint them when you return home to make some garden decorations? Here are 50 Interesting Things to do with Kids at the beach.
#5. Read Outside
Once the weather warms up, pick up your book or e-reader, find a nice comfortable spot to sit, and get to reading! There’s no need to stay cooped up indoors when you could be out getting some fresh air while you read.
#6. Go Cloud Watching
Watching clouds is a very relaxing way to spend some time outdoors, for all ages. Get the kids to lie on their backs, and try identify some cloud shapes.
