This time of year our family loves all the fun spring kids activities!
In spring, our family loves to be outside in nature, which means park days, hikes and beach days. But unless we’re intentional about these springtime activities (including Easter activities for kids), like all things, these spring family activities can get pushed to the side if we’re not intentional about doing them.
We’ve found that making a spring bucket list really helps us focus on the important things we’d like to accomplish together. Enjoy these fun family activities that are perfect for spring!

25 Spring Kids Activities Ideas
Need some ideas for meaningful, fun spring family activities your family can enjoy?
Check out these 25 spring kids activities ideas and add them to your family’s spring bucket list!
You’ll find fun outdoor family activities here, plus a few acts of kindness or service-oriented ideas for families looking to share the hope of Easter. Enjoy!
1) Grab the picnic blanket and host an informal “picnic dinner” on the grass in the backyard.
2) Visit a relative that you haven’t seen for a while (bonus points if you bring a note of encouragement or your kids color a coloring page for them)
3) Go on a “spring color hunt” with your kids! Go on a walk and tell the kids to collect items that represent 5-7 spring colors (pink, red, blue, purple, yellow, orange, etc). The first person to collect all the colors wins!
4) Go fishing at a local pond or river.
5) Collect items for other kids organizations in need, such as a local Ronald McDonald House. Our church puts together Easter baskets for the families staying there over the Easter holidays.
6) April showers keeping you inside? Spend time coloring these beautiful Story of Easter Coloring Pages. Check them out below and get your copy as part of the Christ Centered Easter Family Resources:
7) Find a local basketball court and play a little one-on-one with the kids.
8) Decorate your home for Easter! You’ll love the 8 x 10 and 5 x 5 art printables (plus a banner) here in the Christ-Centered Easter Home Decor Printables!
P.S. These Home Decor Printables also contain the “Spring Bucket List” printable I shared about before! Decorate your home for spring with inspiring faith-based Easter art… and create a cute dry-erase Spring Bucket List!
9) Go to a local scenic area with lots of flower blooms and take impromptu photos with the kids.
10) Pick a bouquet of fresh flowers from plants in your yard or in the neighborhood.
11) Host an Easter activities day with friends where you host a Christian Easter Egg hunt and share about the true message of the Easter story (check out these resources for everything you need!).
13) Go on a “spring color hunt” with your kids! Go on a walk and tell the kids to collect items that represent 5-7 spring colors (pink, red, blue, purple, yellow, orange, etc). The first person to collect all the colors wins!
14) Maybe spring activities represents “spring cleaning” for your family? If so, check out this post on top tips for decluttering. Then donate your no-longer-needed items to a local charity.
15) Our family loves all the beautiful cloud formations in spring (from those spring showers!). Take a few minutes outside with the kids just looking at the cloud formations (and identifying patterns).
16) Dust off the porch swing or patio furniture and snuggle up with your kids to read a good book.
17) Gather loose change in a leftover baby bottle to give to a local crisis pregnancy center.
18) Pick the kids up from school early and take them to a park to play.
19) Go on an outdoor date with your husband (think walking around downtown, sitting outside at a restaurant, or a hike with a picnic).
20) Leave a piece of Easter candy on your child’s pillow at bedtime (when they aren’t expecting it!).
21) If you live where strawberries are in season, visit a “You Pick” field and plan an afternoon of picking (and eating) strawberries.
22) Have your kids write their teacher (or another influential adult in their life) a thank you note.
23) Visit another family you haven’t seen in a while (and bring a yummy dessert).
25) Take each child out for a one-on-one date (even just for coffee or ice cream) to make them feel special.
I hope you enjoyed these ideas!
