Spring Outdoor Activities for Kids
Spring is a perfect time to get the kids outdoors. With all of the flowers blooming, take a walk and see how many different types of flowers you can find.
Get some sidewalk chalk and let kids be creative by drawing some nice spring images. You can even draw a hopscotch.
A great spring project is to plant a children's garden. Kids will have fun planting one, then take pride in it as they watch it grow.
Don't forget about spring cleaning! You can take what both you and the kids no longer use and have a yard sale. Be sure the kids get to keep some of the money, then take them shopping for some new outdoor toys.

Garden Kit for Kids
Here's a fun and useful garden kit for kids. It's sturdy and do to its design, can be used by both boys and girls. I think it's a fun way to spend some quality time together.
Flower Pot Craft
Here's a cute and easy spring craft. You'll need a Terra Cotta pot, paint and a brush, flat marbles and small plastic flowers.
Let kids paint the outside of a Terra Cotta pot. Fill the pot with flat marbles. Now they can "plant" their plastic flowers in it.
If you prefer, you can add soil and plant a small indoor plant. Now, by no means do I have a green thumb and my kids don't always remember to water plants. If this sounds familiar, I would recommend planting a small cactus.

Kids can let their imaginations run wild with this fun sand box. What I like about this one is that it comes with a cover, so you don't have to worry about any wind blowing some of the sand away.
Bubble machines are always entertaining to children. This makes for a fun spring activity as you don't have to worry about any spilling on the floor because they can play with it outside.
Not only is this fun, it's a great source of exercise for kids. What better way to burn off energy.
How about a game of ring toss? What I like about this set is that it's made of wood, so it's sturdy for all the activity kids will have with it. It also makes for a fun family game.
