Outdoorsy Family Activities to Enjoy this Easter / Spring

Spring is a wonderful time of the year for outdoorsy family fun. When Easter is here, the spring weather should hopefully have arrived too with longer, warmer days, sunshine and undoubtedly some rain showers too! Spring is a time full of hope and new beginnings. I love it when you can feel the shift, when you suddenly want to spend more time outdoors and enjoy everything that spring brings.

In this article, we’ll look at some fun outdoorsy family activities to enjoy this Easter!

  • Garden Spring Prep

A great thing to start with is to make sorting out the garden a family activity. There are lots of little jobs that even young children can help with like washing garden toys in a soapy bucket of water, for example. Also take this time to plant some flower seeds or vegetable seeds as a fun gardening project to do with your children.

Set up and clean your garden furniture or revamp your garden with a few new additions. Finish the garden spring clean session with refreshments around your garden table. You can even get crafty together and make your own garden fairy house from a terracotta plant pot!

  • Head out on a Family Bike Ride

Spring is a good time to get the bikes out and get them ready and clean. This is another thing that the kids would probably enjoy getting involved with. Once the bikes are ready, you can head out on a biking adventure together. Perhaps you could visit a local farms to see lambs this spring?

If you’re family is not into biking, then hiking is another great way to get out and moving. Take a spring scavenger hunt checklist with you and look for signs of spring. It’s a great way to entertain little ones and also for everyone to really look at nature and appreciate the changes that the different seasons bring. Geocaching is another fun option for family hikes! These days there are lots of handy apps for outdoor adventures with kids.

If camping overnight in the garden sounds a bit much, then you can build a fort together instead which will be great for playing or relaxing in together.
