Spring Kids Activities & Nature Hunt

Spring Kids Activities & Nature Hunt

Springtime is a great season to enjoy some creative activities. My kids love doing crafty projects, such as dying eggs in colorful natural dyes and going on a spring-inspired scavenger hunt. Yard toys make outdoor play fun and interactive, especially for kids who have gotten used to being inside during colder weather. The whole family can enjoy these fun spring activities!

Spring Themed Scavenger Hunt

My kids sometimes have a hard time playing independently. I made them an outdoor scavenger hunt so they could explore the yard and find treasures. I’ve discovered that kids enjoy searching for things, such as objects in nature, painted rocks and Easter eggs. You can create a scavenger hunt in your own backyard by making your kids a list of items to find. A scavenger hunt list can include simple things such as a large leaf, flat rock and pine cones, as well as harder to find objects such as a bird’s egg shell, purple flower and four leaf clover. My kids spent more than an hour finding things in our yard. Once they found everything on the list I gave them, they created their own lists of more treasures to find!

Colorful Egg Dying Activity

Dying eggs is another classic Spring family activity. Did you know you can color Easter eggs with natural food dyes? You can make yellow dye with Turmeric, blue dye with blueberries and pink dye with beets. My kids enjoyed learning how to make natural food coloring and helping to dye the hard boiled eggs. See our instructions on how you can make natural food coloring to dye eggs with your own kids!

Stomp Rocket Yard Activity

My kids love running and stomping on things, which makes Stomp Rocket a super fun interactive yard activity! Kids can enjoy the satisfaction of shooting a rocket or plane high into the air by stomping on the air powered launch pad. Stomp Rocket comes in a variety of designs, complete with launch stand connected by an air hose to the launch pad.

My kids enjoy this activity because it’s 100% kid-powered and it’s easy to set up and play right away. My kids ages 3 to 6 can practice taking turns, which is great training for siblings. When they nicely play together, my kids can all have fun sending the foam-tipped rockets up to 200 feet in the air. When I need the kids to go outside, I appreciating interactive activities like Stomp Rocket that also encourage my kids to get some exercise.

Fiddlestix Custom Lollipops

Finally, spring is a popular season for playdates and parties! Lollipops are great party favors for spring celebrations. Fiddlestix Candy Company makes it easy to order customized sweets for your party. These handcrafted, small batch lollipops are decorated with an edible image inside the candy. We received several Easter themed lollipops with bunny designs. Each lollipop came in its own wrapper, perfect for gifting in Easter baskets.  They tasted sweet with a mild honey-like flavor. Customized lollipops are a memorable treat for Easter, Mother’s Day, birthdays and even spring weddings.

It’s also fun to invite friends over for a backyard scavenger hunt. When the weather gets warmer, our kids play happily when we give them a few outdoor activities to choose from. How do you make spring memorable for your family?

My kid is shy and doesn’t play independently outside easily. The scavenger hunt is such a great idea and I will have to check out the stomp rocket. I am definitely going to try out these ideas with my son. Thanks for sharing. 😄

Scavenger hunts in nature are the best! I remember when I was a child and played it for the first time during a school trip. And I won the competition, I still remember the book I received as a prize. 🙂
