Fun things to do this Spring for cheap or free!


I thought I'd put together a list of things to do with your family this spring!
(You can also check out my Spring Bucket List)

Make Easter baskets. We had such fun doing this last year and then we had a mini Easter egg hunt in the back garden, the kids loved hunting for the eggs in the grass and putting them there baskets that they made themselves! Such good fun. It's also easy, cheap & fun!

Go to a museum. We were lucky enough to go to Liverpool last year. We visited the world museum, it was FREE entry! We were in the museum a good couple of hours. Because it was free entry, the kids were able to get a souvenir in the gift shop! It was a fab day out, cheap and really, really good fun! We all had a wonderful time and were shattered at the end of the day. Some museums are free entry. Make sure you check before you go.

Go on a bug hunt! This is totally free! My little ones love looking around the garden for insects. Especially in the spring! We've found woodlouse, ants and lots of other fascinating insects in the past. Charlie even found a slow worm. Pretty amazing!!

Go for a walk! We love going on walks and seeing what we can spot! Ellie likes finding and spotting different flowers. The kids always burn off lots of energy! You could take a picnic, too! Make a day of it. We came across a meadow that we never even knew existed (it's well hidden) and it's only a ten minute walk from our house. Amazing.It's free and fun, too. You could even have a bug hunt on your walk!

Board Games! If the weather isn't very good (Spring can be quite wet at times, especially in April.) why not dig out those board games! Of course, you can do this any time of year and it doesn't need to be raining for board games fun. Why not play them in the garden if the weather is nice. Another fun, free activity for the whole family :)

Make something from a cardboard box. We're gonna see if we can get a big enough cardboard box to make a house or a car. I remember doing this when I was a kid. I had great fun painting & decorating my "house". The box was HUGE! I had hours of fin playing with it. I can't wait to do it with my little ones.

Baking! Spring and Easter is a great time to do some baking! We made some Easter bark last year! Yummy! It's SO easy! It doesn't cost a lot either :)
Our Easter bark! YUM!

What are some of the things you enjoy doing in the spring time?
