10 Fun things to do with the kids on the first day of spring
The first day of spring has arrived, which means the kids will be out of school. Here are a few fun things you can do with the kids to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather:
- Plant a garden together. Spring is a great time to plant a garden with the kids.
- Go for a walk or a bike ride together. Since the days are getting longer, exercise together in outdoor settings.
- Play outside. If it’s a nice day and you have the right shoes, a day at the beach on the lake or by the water is a great way to spend a few hours. If you want to get a little more creative, you can try frolicking in the sand, painting a picture with the beach, setting up a water play area or taking some time at a local water park.
- Go to the zoo. Stroll through the animals one by one, take in the beautiful surroundings and just enjoy the zookeepers training the animals and feeding them. As a bonus, you can check out all the animals in their natural habitat!
- Play Frisbee. If you live near a park, you can play Frisbee. You’ll get one point per yard that you control!
- Play dodgeball. Just find a nearby court, pick up the ball and have some fun!
- Have a Frisbee golf game. Find a nearby golf course, bring the kids (or the dog and you!) and just have some fun.
- Play Frisbee football. Even if you don’t have kids, you can still have a ball game: Put on your jersey and get started.
- Play Frisbee golf with the family. Have one person hold the Frisbee and the other throws it. Every time they score a point, the person with the Frisbee score one point. To keep it interesting, try to see who can throw the Frisbee farther than the other person.
- At the end enjoy a nice lunch or dinner out on the patio or at a restaurant that has a patio
