Creating a spring bucket list is a great activity for the whole family, and you’ll make tons of great memories together checking items off your list. So get outside, get moving, and enjoy this gorgeous time of year!

  1. Grow your garden – Seeing flowers in bloom is the highlight of spring! Whether you’re a gardening guru or just discovering your green thumb, plant some of your favorite flowers, herbs, or veggies and watch them grow.
  2. Join a walking club – Getting outside to exercise is a great way to boost your mood and explore your neighborhood. Join or start a walking club to socialize with friends and make your workout fly by.
  3. Raise caterpillars – If you have young children, they’ll love watching caterpillars grow into butterflies. You can buy a pre-made kit online that comes with everything you need. Check in each day to see how the caterpillars are progressing and then release your beautiful butterflies into the wild.
  4. Visit a new park – Explore your neighborhood or city and find a new park for a walk, bike ride or play time. You never know what kinds of hidden gems you might find.
  5. Beautify your neighborhood – Spring is a great time to tackle a project to improve your neighborhood. You might consider something like building a bench for people to take a rest on in a community space or installing a Little Free Library (just make sure to get the necessary permissions first).
  6. Start something crafty – Finding a new hobby can be a lot of fun and boost your confidence and creativity. Think about activities that pique your interest or that you enjoyed during childhood like writing, photography, or painting. Go out into nature to find inspiration for your next project.
  7. Take an outdoor exercise class – Signing up for an outdoor exercise class is a fun way to take your fitness to the next level and enjoy the fresh air. You might find a boot camp, outdoor yoga, or dance class.
  8. Game on - Dust off those outdoor games and plan a get together for some friendly competition in the backyard. Ask guests to bring a dish to share for a potluck and give out funny prizes to the winners!
  9. Take a hike – There are so many different places to explore, and going for a hike can lead you to some breathtaking views. Just make sure to go with a friend and bring plenty of water and snacks, first aid supplies and navigation tools.
  10. Flower bracelet – This is a great activity for young children! Take some clear tape and make a circle with the sticky part facing out and form it into a bracelet around their wrist. Then, have them walk around the neighborhood finding small flowers to tape onto their “bracelet.”
  11. Take a scenic drive – Spring is an ideal time for a drive in the countryside to see the flowers and trees in bloom. Create a playlist and hit the road! Even better if you have a convertible so you can enjoy the view with the top down.
  12. Tackle home projects – Do you have projects that need to get done around the house? Make a pledge to make progress on your to-do list this season. Then treat yourself with something fun like a new picture frame or plant!
  13. Explore your hometown – Whether it’s an outdoor festival or a museum exhibit, spring is likely filled with fun happenings in your hometown. Add a few new events to your calendar and discover local arts, culture, and cuisine.
  14. Act of kindness Surprise a neighbor or friend with fresh flowers or a flowering plant to brighten their day. A simple gesture can mean so much to let someone know you are thinking of them!
  15. Go to baseball game – It wouldn’t be spring without America’s favorite pastime: baseball! Catch a minor or major league game and enjoy some chewing gum and Crackerjacks as you cheer on the home team.
  16. Concert in the park – Many cities offer concerts in the park or other types of outdoor music events. Check for shows in your area and don’t forget the sunscreen.
  17. Wildlife watch – Observe the animals in your home habitat and on your travels through the spring and summer. Get the kids involved to keep a list of different species you see and research facts about creatures from birds to sea life.
  18. Host a garden party – If you have some outdoor space, a garden party is a great way to get together with friends while enjoying the beautiful spring weather. Serve tea and light snacks, and don’t forget your best hat!
  19. Read outside – Grab a blanket and head to a comfortable spot outside with your favorite book (try to leave your phone behind). Nothing beats a restful afternoon in the fresh air!
  20. Visit an amusem*nt park – Get in some thrills and fun at an amusem*nt park before the summer crowds and heat arrive! You’ll feel like a kid again and make lasting memories with your family or friends.
  21. Give back – Volunteering for a local nonprofit or helping those in your community can make you feel great about making a difference in the world. There are tons of projects you can be a part of, from Habitat for Humanity to serving at a soup kitchen.
  22. Berry picking – Depending on where you live, berry picking may be open for the season at your local orchard. Try making a sweet new recipe with your harvest and share with friends!
  23. Play in the rain – With spring often comes those rain showers. Make the most of it by putting on your boots and getting an umbrella so you can play in the rain. Your children will love jumping in mud puddles!
  24. Campfire fun – With the weather warming up, it’s the perfect time to invite friends or family over for a campfire. Just grab some hotdogs and hamburgers to grill, put on some tunes, and share some (not too) scary stories.
  25. Meet new friends – If you’ve hunkered down during the winter, you may want to venture out in the warmer weather to meet new people or catch up with friends! Consider joining a club that fits your interests or check out a new class at a community center.

Hopefully these ideas can spark some inspiration for ways that you and your family can get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather! Take joy in the warmer temperatures after a cold winter and bask in the sun before it starts getting too hot to enjoy being outside. Hopefully, you and your family can make some fantastic memories together by checking items off your spring bucket list!
