Amazing Spring Activities for Kids

Sharing is caring!

Bring on the Spring! We love Spring here at Daisies & Pie and cannot wait to throw ourselves into loads of lovely Spring activities with the kids, embracing the new season and and all it’s beautiful offerings. 

We don’t want our Spring fun list to be about spending lots of money, we want to big up enjoying the simple things in life and experiencing things together. 

1. Make a bird feeder 

Making a bird feeder for the garden birds and giving nature a home is a really feel-good activity. We love our natural squash bird feeder or homemade fat balls.  

For more ways on encouraging wildlife to the garden – check out the brilliant ideas at RSPB Give Nature a Home. 

2. Puddle jumping 

If there’s one thing the Spring usually brings it’s rain showers… get on the wellies and raincoats and go jump in the puddles.

3. Kite flying

Pick a lovely windy day and head off to the park or the beach and fly kites. You could even just make little paper kites and fly them in the garden, there’s always time to go fly a kite.

4. Watch the sunrise

Get up early, head outdoors, either take the dog for a walk or just whisk up some hot chocolate and head into the garden and watch the sunrise. 

5. Make a spring scrapbook 

Scrapbooks are simple, you can either buy a book or folder and decorate it with pictures, drawings or craft bits and pieces – or you can simply tie your pages together with pretty ribbon or string. Fill your book with your spring adventures – photographs – tickets – drawings – little finds, anything that makes you happy. 

6. Make wind-catchers 

We love these pretty wind-catchers, you can decorate them however you like, tie on ribbons, strips of material, strings and even hang little bells or chimes to tinkle in the wind.

7. Decorate some plant pots 

Grab yourself some terracotta pots and paints and decorate the pots ready for planting spring flowers or little vegetable and herb seeds. You could even make some re-cycled herb pots from juice bottles!

8. Build an outdoor den

Get outdoors in the garden and build a den – use chairs, sticks, sheets, old cardboard boxes, whatever you have and build an amazing garden fort! 

9. Feed the ducks 

There’s always time in life for a trip to feed the ducks and kids just love it. 

10. Make some Spring crafts 

Get out all of craft stuff, the pastel *everything* and make some Spring crafts – bunny bunting, finger paint blossom pictures, fluffy lambs, spring crowns – whatever takes your fancy. 

11. Plant some seeds

Make a little veggie garden – you can do this easily just use containers or window-boxes. Pick easy foods to grow – like potatoes, herbs, tomatoes and strawberries. 

12. Go on a bug hunt

Kids love to hunt for bugs, grab the printable bug hunt sheet here and get outdoors and see what you can find.

13. Visit the farmers market

Go to the local farmers market and pick up some fresh spring produce – get the kids involved in choosing the food then cook up a storm in the kitchen when you get home. 

14. Make Mother’s Day cards 

Get the craft stuff out and make homemade Mother’s Day cards – they’re the very best type.

15. Do some Spring baking

Cook up some Spring cookies, decorate some chocolate eggs or create Easter nest cakes – maybe cook up a fancy Easter cake (or cheat your way to a good one) 

16. Have a Spring tea party

As you’ve done all that baking, you may as well go the whole way and have a little afternoon tea party – little crustless sandwiches, mini quiches and a delicious selection of cookies and cakes. 

17. Dance in the rain 

Dancing in the rain feels just so good – free – fun and so refreshing.

Go all out and create a beautiful Easter egg hunt – think streamers, bunting, ribbons, bows, little rabbit ears to wear, beautifully decorated baskets the whole package. 

19. Visit the farm and see the baby animals 

There’s nothing cuter than baby animals – a trip to the local farm is always lovely and something kids really, really enjoy. 

20. Visit a May Day festival 

If you can find a May Day festival take time to visit, enjoy traditional May Pole dancing and celebrations. Maybe take a picnic and make a day of it.
