Outdoor Spring Activities for Children

As soon as the Spring air hits, we’re all desperate to go outside and get some fresh air, especially children! But, when the temperature hasn’t quite hit those beautiful summer highs, what can the kids do to keep themselves entertained? Here are our top 5 recommended outdoor spring activities for children:

1. Go for a walk or hike

Hiking trails and sidewalks are open all year round! Whether you’re up north at a cottage rental or you’re at home. You can always, rain or shine, get outside and go for a walk. Whether you have 15 minutes of time to kill or 8+ hours, you can always get out on your own two feet and explore the surroundings.

2. Play a Game

Whether you play a classic game that doesn’t involve props, such as Hide-And-Seek or Tag or a fun game for the whole family, such as Horseshoes, Washer Toss, Bocce Ball or Croquet, there are countless fun outdoor games that don’t require a ton of space and could be played whether you’re at home or the cottage.

3. Plan a Scavenger Hunt

Create a scavenger hunt on the next rainy day that involves several locations around your property, clues and prizes! Save it for the next time your kids tell you they’re bored. Children will love spending time doing this and it’s a great activity they will remember for years to come!

4. Practice Sports

Love hockey in the winter and baseball in the summer? Maybe you’re more of a basketball and football or soccer family? Whatever sport is your passion, spring is a great time to get outside and get active! Whether you’re simply tossing the baseball or football back and forth or playing a neighbourhood game of street hockey, getting outside and being active is the best way for kids to spend their down time in spring!

5. Go Fishing

Finally, the ice is off the lake, it’s time to go fishin’! Pull the fishing rods out of the shed, grab a life jacket and soak in every ounce of fishing the season has to offer!

No matter what your go-to outdoor spring activities are for your family, the goal is to help your children create memories that will last them a lifetime!
