Over 50 fun indoor and outdoor spring activities


Spring is the time to reawaken our love of nature and adventure. As such, we’ve listed several things to do this spring that might seem just for kids. But we even encourage adults without children or adults with adult children to try them too (you’ll thank us later). See how many springtime activities you can cross off your to-do list this season, whether you decide to undertake traditional springtime rites, immerse yourself in springtime mindfulness, or simply enjoy a seasonal menu.
