Spring is full of various feel-good activities for moms and families! Give yourself an outlet for fun or unite the family for a new activity this spring.
After the stress and intensity that was last year (and this year, so far), everyone could use a little mood boost this spring—especially moms. Whether you want to do something to inspire the whole family or give yourself a necessary break, spring is the perfect time to do it. Become a beacon of positivity this season with these simple but effective springtime activities that will boost your mood.
Visit a Nature Preserve You’ve Never Been To Before
What’s better in the spring than enjoying the refreshing breeze and crisp, clean air? The answer is “not much.” Take in the sights of a nature preserve in bloom or a park you’ve never been to before. There’s beauty all around, especially in nature, so let yourself feel inspired by the natural charms of your local walking or hiking trails. Bring your whole family along for a new and exciting adventure!
Get Crafty for Springtime!
Spring crafts are probably some of the most fun—what better time is there to incorporate bundles of flowers, flocks of birds, and beautiful pastels? Start on your Easter preparations early by crafting some cute bunny décor or baskets for your kids. Help out the local bird population while recycling some of your used cartons and cardboard with these DIY carton bird feeders.
Make wreaths of your favorite flowers using the inspiration from the nature walks we mentioned earlier. Creativity flows endlessly in the spring, especially when you get your children involved with the crafts!
Start Planning Your Kids’ Easter Baskets
While we’re on the subject of Easter baskets, I should start thinking about what the Easter Bunny needs to put in the family’s baskets this year. If you still need to think about what you—I mean, the Easter Bunny—needs to fill your baskets with, don’t let it stress you out! Think about the joy of Easter morning and the smiles on your kids’ faces when they look in their baskets. Get crafty or buy something fun—either choice will make your children happy.
Fly a Kite and Draw With Chalk
When’s the last time you flew a kite or made chalk drawings with your kids? Kites and chalk are two of the most whimsical springtime activities that will boost your mood, so get out there and have fun with your children! Kites are educational because they teach your child about how wind can make things fly—but who cares about all that! They’re fun and pretty!
Make your driveway or sidewalk match the beauty of spring with oodles of cute and interesting drawings from your whole family. Whether you’re a true artist or can only scribble a few squiggly lines together, it doesn’t matter as long as you get outside and have some quality family fun.
