Many children are enthusiastic about blooming blooms, brilliant colors, and warm sunshine as the spring equinox ushers in a new season. With some enjoyable activities, you can celebrate the changing weather and foster an appreciation for the season when everything comes to life. Many of these activities are simple to put together, and many of them may be done with items you already have on hand. Here are some fun spring activities for kids.
- Blowing Your Own Bubbles
Blowing bubbles is a popular activity among children of all ages. Making them yourself with a few items you probably already have on hand is even better than blowing them up. Water, dish soap, and glycerin are all you need to make your own bubbles. Play some backyard bubble games once you’ve made a batch. Try bubble pop freeze dance, in which participants pop as many bubbles as they can until the music stops and they must freeze. Anyone who does not freeze is eliminated until just one player remains. Try bubble tag, in which the “it” player must tag another player by blowing a bubble at them.
- Create a Magic Potion
With all of the new vegetation and the return of the warm sun, spring feels like a lovely season. Make a batch of “magic potion” with the youngsters to help them celebrate its arrival. They can gather natural materials from their garden (such as berries, flower petals, and leaf cuttings) and combine them with a water solution (dyed with natural coloring if you wish). Then have them pour it in the lawn or garden to aid in the growth and blooming of the plants.
- Organize a Flower-Themed Get-Together.
Do you need a spring equinox party idea for the kids? Floral-themed party is replete with flower-themed decorations, cake, crafts, and games. Learn to make paper flowers with your kids instead of using cut flowers as centerpieces.
- Build a Birdhouse
Birds return to the landscape in the spring and hunt for sites to nest. As a result, building a birdhouse with your children is an ideal spring project. There are many different ways to build a birdhouse to fit your style and skill level. To make things easier, several craft stores provide birdhouse kits that include straightforward directions and all the materials you’ll need.
- Set up a Spring Scavenger Hunt.
What can you see in the spring that you don’t see the rest of the year? Perhaps it’s spring blossoms or pinecones exposed by melting snow. Make a list of the things that nature delivers in the springtime with your kids. Then go on a scavenger quest outside to acquire a sample of each. Do you want to make it a contest? Make two lists, divide into teams, and compete to see who can recover everything first.
- Take Pictures in the Spring
It’s a beautiful time of year to go outside and snap some shots. Challenge your children to find the greatest spring backdrop for a family photo shoot. Then, have your children print the photos and use them to construct scrapbook pages or framed photos as Mother’s Day gifts.
