Pop the blinds and open the windows—spring is out there, and it’s saying, “come play!” The warm weather and blue skies are calling your name, so take heed with these six spring activities that will help you celebrate the season, have fun—and maintain your social distance.
1. Go on a scavenger hunt.
Experience the great outdoors with a spring scavenger hunt. Grab some paper, pens, and get the whole family together and see how many signs of spring you can find near your home. Look for things like:
- Plants poking through the soil
- Tree buds
2.Refresh your door décor.
Knock, knock—spring is here! Show the community you’re ready for spring by sprucing up your front door and porch. Incorporate bright flowers, swap out your usual mat, and hang a colorful wreath for a look that says, “Welcome.” We love these D.I.Y. spring wreath ideas from Country Living.
3. Decorate your driveway.
Take advantage of the beautiful weather and spread some joy with sidewalk chalk art. Add some color to the concrete with a hopscotch game and a rainbow or write positive messages for others to see as they walk or drive by. Check out #ChalkYourWalk on social media for inspiration and ideas.
4. Take a virtual vacation.
While your spring break plans may have fallen through, it doesn’t mean you can’t visit your dream destination. Right now, you can experience the San Diego Zoo, hike Yellowstone National Park, explore the surface of Mars, and even visit the Louvre in Paris from the comfort of your couch. Bon voyage!
5. Get crafty.
Bring your favorite things about spring to life with a coloring page. Crayola has a large selection of free, printable coloring pages featuring flowers, baby animals, garden critters, and more. When you’re finished, display your creation in the window for everyone to enjoy.
6. Go green.
April 22, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Celebrate this important day—and milestone—by going green. Switching off the lights when leaving a room, turning off the water while brushing your teeth, and using a reusable water bottle are easy ways you can do your part while you’re at home.
