15 Spring Activities to Do With Your Kids (Indoor and Outdoor)

Are your kids eager to go outside and play as soon as the snow starts to melt?

Looking for some springtime fun for your family, if only it would stop raining?

You and your kids can celebrate spring, no matter what the weather is.

The editors of My Kids’ Adventures have scoured the web and found 15 spring activities your family can enjoy either indoors or outdoors (or a little bit of both).

In this article I’ll share our favorite 15 for spring activities (think indoor-outdoor adventures) that you can enjoy with your kids, regardless of the forecast.

Celebrate spring, no matter what the weather is with 15 spring activities for kids that your family can enjoy either indoors or outdoors (or a bit of both).

Why Spring Activities?

Spring is around the corner! We look forward to warmer days, flowers and more opportunities to get outside and play. But sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, sending blustery weather our way.

Below, you’ll find a range of activities as dynamic as the weather. Use this list on warm days when you want to grab the kids and do something together outside, and on those grey, rainy days that are best spent indoors. Some activities have an element of both, because, well, some spring days are like that!

We can’t help but feel hopeful in the spring. As winter thaws, it’s an exciting time for new beginnings and growth in nature. Kids feel the new energy too, and want to get into the spirit of the season. The activities below can help.
