10 Spring Activities For Kids

Spring is here which means tons of fun activities both inside and outside for the kids. The ideas are endless! 

Get them crafting with natural elements in the backyard, decorating their room or the fridge and even making edible crafts.


Tie dying t-shirts are a great way to let children show their true colors. With a few rubber bands and the proper dye, let them have fun creating colorful shirts they can wear all spring.


If your child has a love for the ocean, they will really have fun making their own octopus doll. If they are really young, you will have to keep them away from a glue gun, but you can teach them how to braid each section and decorate the ends with extra yarn or ribbon!

If you want take activities indoors for a while, kids will really go crazy over this homemade bathtub puffy paint. All you need is grated soap, dye, hot water and a food processor and you can whip up some seriously colorful suds for your tub.


For the little chef, have them decorate their own aprons with fabric markers. They can even glue on jewels or add some glitter for some extra glam!

Another great way to get the kids excited for spring is to have them grow beans in little mason jars with cotton balls. It's a fun project to teach kids how to take care of plants, but also they will love observing each step the plant takes in its growth cycle.
