The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and spring is finally here. That means it’s time to get the kids outside to stretch out and take in all of that crisp, fresh air. At Two Bros Bows, we know a thing or two about having a good time in the great outdoors, and we want to help your kiddos have a super fun spring season they will remember forever. That’s why we’ve put together a list of super fun spring activities and games perfect for getting them out the door, learning, and exploring nature.
Let’s hop to it!
Seven Entertaining Spring Activities for Kids
1. Go on a Bike Ride
If your kids have been cooped up all winter long, a bike ride is a perfect way to “break the ice” and get back outdoors. Whether they prefer the smooth terrains of your local bike path or like to buzz around the neighborhood on their two-wheeler, getting your kids outside and on their bikes is a physical and mentally rewarding spring activity perfect for any sunny afternoon.
2. Plant a Garden
Looking for fun spring activities that are also highly educational? Planting a garden is one of the best! Not only does planting a garden allow them to get a little bit dirty (and what kid doesn’t love that?), but it’s also an excellent opportunity to teach your kids about the magic of nature, like where healthy foods come from, and, more importantly, the effort that goes into growing that food.
Set aside an afternoon to talk about how seeds, sunshine, and water work together to grow food. Show them how to plant seeds and care for a garden that will produce a beautiful bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables. You might be surprised by just how much fun they have learning about agriculture!
3. Take a Hike
Spring is the season of new life, and taking a hike is one of the best ways to witness that new life in bloom. Hiking during the springtime might be a bit muddy or wet, but it’s certainly not boring. Your kids will love walking through the changing terrain, hearing the birds chirping overhead, and witnessing new life blossom from the ground and trees. Make your hike as short and sweet or as long and lax as you have time for. After all, there’s no wrong way to get outside and explore nature!
4. Try a New Sport
Looking to create a regular schedule of fun spring activities for your child? Sign them up for a spring sport! With baseball, lacrosse, tennis, and club sports, there are endless opportunities to make new friends and stay active this spring.
If your child is interested in archery, or you’re looking for spring games for kids to play at home to burn off some of that seemingly endless amount of energy, our kid's bow and arrow sets come equipped with a toy bow, three soft-tipped toy arrows, and a kid’s bow and arrow target perfect for mastering their new archery skills any time, any place.
Our toy bow and arrows for kids unleash fun, creativity, and imagination, all while teaching them self-confidence, perseverance, and strengthening their hand-eye coordination. Plus, there are tons of fun birthday party and spring games for kids to play using their toy archery set, like these five fun archery games. How could you go wrong? Paired with a set of devil sticks, your child’s afternoon of hanging out at home just got a lot more fun.
5. Make a Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt is one of our favorite spring activities for kids. Not only can a scavenger hunt be played indoors or outside, but it can also be as short and sweet, or long and challenging as necessary to keep them intrigued. There are dozens of free scavenger hunt printables online you can choose from in a time crunch or make your own fun scavenger hunt with items native to your neighborhood, home, or backyard. The possibilities are endless!
6. Blow Bubbles & Play with Chalk
Some days, the most fun spring activities for kids are the simplest ones, like blowing bubbles and playing with chalk. These activities are awesome for kids of any age or a mixed-age group of kids to enjoy together. Let everyone design their own chalk creations or come together to plan a chalk masterpiece in your driveway. They can even use the chalk and sidewalk to come up with some super fun spring games for kids in the neighborhood to play, like hopscotch, four square, alphabet hop, or sidewalk twister. Or, encourage them to make up their own game!
7. Have a Picnic
Looking for a fun spring activity accompanied by a change of scenery? A picnic can accomplish both! Pick a new location, like the beach, a favorite park, or a scenic spot, pack a lunch, and take off for the afternoon to enjoy some homemade sandwiches in the sunshine.
