Embrace the Outdoors: Spring Adventures for DealDash Families

This year, the March equinox happens on March 19 at 11:06 P.M. EDT. This is the astronomical beginning of the spring season in the Northern Hemisphere. In other words, happy official spring!

As the signs of spring begin to show outdoors, it’s the perfect time for families to step outdoors and embrace the fresh air and budding nature. Early spring offers a unique opportunity to witness the world waking up from its winter slumber. This makes it an ideal time for family adventures. Here are some engaging outdoor activities that will delight families and create lasting memories, from DealDash.

Nature Walks Outdoors: Discover the Awakening World

One of the simplest and most rewarding early spring activities is taking a nature walk. This time of year, parks and nature trails are alive with the sights and sounds of spring. Encourage your children to look for budding flowers, listen for the return of birds from their winter migrations, and observe the changing landscape. Bring along a nature guidebook or use a mobile app to identify different plant and animal species. This not only makes for a fun adventure but also educates your children about the natural world and the importance of conservation. Just yesterday my husband took our 8-year-old on a nature walk and they had so much fun they didn’t return for hours! Give it a try with your kids this weekend.

Picnics in the Park: Enjoy the Blossoming Scenery

There’s something special about the first picnic of the year. Pack a blanket and a basket full of your family’s favorite foods and head to a local park. Choose a spot where you’re surrounded by the beauty of spring, whether it’s under a blooming tree or by a babbling brook. After eating, play some family-friendly games like frisbee or hide-and-seek, or simply relax and enjoy each other’s company. This is a wonderful way to soak up the sunshine, enjoy the fresh air, and spend quality time together. If it’s still too chilly to do this in your area, make a date with your family for a future picnic. Put it on the calendar so everyone can have it to look forward to.

Kite Flying: Soar into Spring

Kite flying is a classic spring activity that’s perfect for all ages. The gentle breezes of early spring provide the perfect conditions for kite flying. Whether you buy a kite or make one as a DIY project at home, flying it is a thrilling experience for kids and a nostalgic one for adults. Find a wide-open space, such as a beach or an open field, where you can safely let your kite soar. This activity not only offers fun and excitement but also teaches kids about wind and aerodynamics in a hands-on way.

If you would love to get started in the high-flying world of kites, it’s time to do a little research. Check out the American Kite Fliers Association at Kite.org to get started.

Gardening for Wildlife: Create a Backyard Habitat

Early spring is the ideal time to start a garden that will attract wildlife, such as birds, butterflies, and bees. Work together as a family to choose plants that are native to your area, as these will be the most beneficial for local wildlife. Planting milkweed, for example, can attract monarch butterflies, while sunflowers can draw in bees and birds. Creating a wildlife-friendly garden not only beautifies your outdoor space but also provides a vital habitat for many species. Plus, watching your garden grow and become a home for wildlife can be incredibly rewarding for both you and your children.
