Spring is a new beginning which means NEW ACTIVITIES!! I have complied some of my favourite things to do when that Spring Equinox rolls around. And I’m not going to say that you have to do all of these spring ideas in order to have the best spring ever, HOWEVER, if you do all of these you are my personal hero, and we should be BFFs because I totally have, too. Check out this spring bucket list and start to check off all the things to do in spring!
All the Best Spring Bucket List Ideas
Has anyone else noticed that the days are getting longer, the temps are rising, and that fun colours are starting to pop back up in stores?! I can’t be the only one that is noticing that spring is right around the corner! The first few weeks of spring are some of the most rejuvenating and refreshing times of the year. As the plants and flowers start to come back to life, it is almost like everything else finds the confidence to kick the doors open and flaunt their stuff!
Your spring bucket list of ideas should be a bit different from mine, since you will want it to be inspired by who you are and what activities you like to do. Spring makes me want to clean out my closets and bake. In spring, I crave to get after a long cold, wet winter. It is spring that gets me excited about outdoor adventures and making plans to explore nature. What would spring ideas will you put on your list of things to do in spring.
Go to a Baseball Game
Nothing says “It’s springtime!” quite like “It’s game time!”
Photograph the Blossoms
Head to a local botanical garden or along a tree lined street to photograph all the beautiful spring cherry blossoms. Even on a rainy day this is the perfect spring activity to celebrate the arrival of spring.
Go for a Nature Walk
Grab your dog, a family member, or even the whole family and hit a nature trail. It is a great way to get some fresh air after a long winter.
Have A BBQ
Celebrate the warmer weather by doing a pre-summer warm up by throwing a fun BBQ with your pals! This is one of my favourite springtme activities!
Dance in The Rain
April showers bring May flowers but dancing in the rain brings happiness! The spring season may be wet, so try to embrace it.
Go to the Zoo
Lions and tigers and bears – oh my! Also, what a perfect opportunity for a cool photo shoot! The arrival of spring is a great time of year to check out the zoo or the petting zoo in your neighbourhood.
Decorate Easter Eggs
Easter is coming so be sure to get those Easter eggs all dyed and decorated before the Easter bunny arrives! Doesn’t everyone have this on their spring bucket list of ideas?
Tulips and sunflowers are finally back in season so celebrate these radiant flowers by planting some in the yard for everyone to enjoy. If you are lucky, you might even find a four-leaf clover.
Plan a Picnic
Time to break out that checkered red and white blanket, a couple of sandwiches, and maybe a bottle of wine and go enjoy it with bae.
Try Kayaking or Canoeing
Spring is the perfect time to get outdoors for fun activities and needs to be on your ultimate spring bucket list. I am especially fond of spring glacier kayaking in BC.
Fly a Kite
Teach a kid in your life (or even your boyfriend!) how to fly a kite on a windy, spring day.
Take a Family Photo or any Fun Photo
Take the fam out for a shopping trip, get matching outfits, and go out for a force family fun photo shoot! 🙂
Enjoy an Outdoor Concert
Festival season is upon us once again so go out and find one that you know you and your pals won’t want to miss.
Jump in Puddles
Let loose and stomp in puddles like you did when you were young! Relive those days after those spring storms.
Celebrate Peanut Butter Lovers Day
On March 1st, you will find me munching on my gluten free peanut butter & jam cookies or one of my creamy peanut butter pie recipes. You can also pick something from my list of the best peanut butter recipes.
New Outdoor Fitness Class
As for me, I LOVE me some yoga in the park. Look up to see what is being offered around you so that you can get your bod super summer ready while enjoying the warmer days.
Read a Book in the Park
Nothing says relaxation quite like chilling in a park on a sunny day with your favorite book. Bonus points if it’s a dog park!
Go to a Local Farmer’s Market
Fresh food is back and better than ever – YAY! Go support your local farmer’s markets and collect some goodies. Fresh fruits and berries need to be on your list. Maybe even pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers to bring home, too.
Eat Ice Cream
Go on a Bike Ride
A perfect way to exercise and enjoy the beauty of spring outdoors! This is one of my favourite things to in spring.
Play with Sidewalk Chalk
Make some sidewalk art for everyone to enjoy and use chalk to literally draw inspiration!
Take a Road Trip with the Windows Down
Not cold enough for the heater but not hot enough for the AC? Perfect! Take a day trip somewhere with all the windows down and music blasting!
Find the End of a Rainbow
Once the storm clouds part and a rainbow appears – take an adventure and find the end of a rainbow!
Watch the Sunrise + Sunset
Now that the temps aren’t the same numbers as our ages anymore, go out and enjoy the cool mornings and evening to watch the sun do a colour dance in the sky!
*Alexa, play the 2009 classic* When the sun goes down, run around in grassy areas to find these adorable glowing bugs! Who else has this on their list of things to do in spring?!?
Bake a Pie
Celebrate Earth Day
Take time today (and every day!) to go outside and clean your neighborhood litter, recycle daily, and maybe even plant a tree today!
Spring Clean Your Closet
Pull a Marie Kondo and if it doesn’t spark joy – throw. it. out. Well, go donate it to a local charity or Goodwill.
Buy a New Spring Dress
SPRING MEANS NEW SPRING DRESSES. There is also a ton with pockets now. POCKETS!!
Make Homemade Lemonade
You can help a child set up their first lemonade stand and make lemonade with them or you can enjoy it alllll to yourself! Either way, nothing beats a cup of refreshing cup of lemonade. How about this sparking strawberry lemonade recipe or this colour changing lemonade recipe? If you are like me, lemonade making is on your spring bucket list of ideas.
Create a Spring Bucket List Playlist
Because who doesn’t need a fresh playlist for one of the most refreshing seasons?! Blast it while doing your spring cleaning, too.
Find a Food Truck Event
Did I hear street tacos?? I think that’s enough said.
Soak in a Hot Spring
Look up hot springs near you or if you’re jetting off on a spring break vacay, find a hot spring to soak in and enjoy the longer days.
Get a Fresh Haircut
You don’t need to chop all your hair off, but wouldn’t spring feel nicer without extra weight on your shoulders? I know, bad pun.
Decorate the House with Flowers
Now that flowers are blooming EVERYWHERE, let your home be one more place that anyone can find them!
Using GPS to play a grown up version of hide-and-seek with containers, start exploring your region by geocaching!
Get Your Nails Spring Ready
Because we all need sparkles and pastels to go with all our outfits this season. Duh! What spring ideas do you have for your nails this year?
Make Crafts with Kids
The kiddos all need something to do during their Spring Break, too! For the kids in your life, set up fun crafts that even you will want to participate in.
Backyard Movie Night
Depending on where you are in the world, the weather may not be in your favour for this one. But if you can, set up a projector and a popcorn bar for a fun evening! I am DYING to do this and hoping to check it off my spring bucket list soon.
Feed Ducks in a Pond
We see sweet little, old people do it all the time so we should, too! (But only if rules and laws state that you can!)
Make Homemade Pizzas
Did someone say PIZZA?! Throw a little get together with friends and compile all of your fav toppings with your fav people.
Create a Town-Wide Scavenger Hunt
Use Pinterest to create your very own scavenger hunt with friends and fam! Sprinkle items throughout famous landmarks in your town for added fun.
