The sun will begin to shine and the flowers will start to bloom. It is time to make a plan as to how you are going to enjoy this change of season. Here are 22 Spring Bucket List ideas to get you started.
There seems to finally be some light at the end of the tunnel. We get to once again enjoy warmer weather, blooming flowers and a whole lot of fun spring activities we may do every spring – or have never done before! I’ve created the bucket list of the best things to do in spring to make sure that all of us can capture the best of the season.
Along with spring comes warmer weather and greener scenery. Therefore it makes some great time to go out climbing trees as they are returning to life. Climbing a tree is one of those spring activities that is fun no matter how young or old you are. Just make sure you do it safely!
Dining al fresco essentially just means dining outdoors, the term deriving from Italian language. It’s an especially popular activity during the summer season, but actually you can (and should) start your al fresco dining a wee bit early. In the spring time, the air is wonderfully crisp as you dine outdoors and it’s much easier to find a restaurant without a crowded terrace area to dine in.
With spring comes along warmer weather, walks and picnics at the park, and the ducks also begin emerging into the lakes, ponds and rivers at said parks and other areas. Feeding the ducks – doing so with putting much care into what and how much you feed them, of course – can be a happy activity especially for the little ones in the family, though I imagine us adults find plenty of enjoyment in it as well. However, instead of bread, try feeding the ducks with oats and seeds, rice or grapes cut in half.
Another one of the outdoor things to do in spring is to fly a kite in the park. The shops and online stores are filled with different kinds of kites for you to choose the one that’s most to your liking – or you can even make your own!
Spring is a migration season for birds, when birds return to the Northern hemisphere after spending the winter in somewhere warm. That makes spring an amazing season to go bird watching because they’re gathering in large groups and will therefore be easier to see. You can even buy a bird watching book to see how many you can see.
Once snow clears out and the warmer weather is upon us, a huge, diverse range of outdoor activities becomes available to us. Among them are both kayaking and paddle boarding which are perfect ways to spend the late spring days where it’s sufficiently warm but not too hot for enjoying. Plus, even if the water temperatures aren’t high enough for swimming yet, that’s no obstacle for kayaking and paddle boarding.
Taking place somewhere from end of February to early April depending on where you’re based, spring break is a popular vacation period in the spring season. It may typically be likened to as a holiday when college students hit the beach for scandalous partying, but your spring break vacation can be widely different from that if you wish; doesn’t quite matter how you spend it as long as you do commit to one of the most quintessential of spring activities. Maybe you’ll want to take your family to Disney World or maybe you’ll want to go chill in Maui by yourself?
Bird feeders are not beneficial to hang in your backyard simply for our own amusement of watching as various birds come for feeding, but during the nesting season specifically it helps parent birds collect more food – or at least more easily – for their baby birds than if they have to fly far from the nest to get the food.
Garage sales can actually be an insanely great way to get rid of some items you no longer need, with surprisingly little effort as you don’t need to leave your house to commit to it. You can also use it as a chance to network and socialize with people living in your neighborhood plus you’ll make some money on the side.
If you have a garden or access to anything resembling one, throwing a gorgeous garden tea party—even if it’s just for a small crowd—can be a major highlight for the spring season. Get inspired dreaming and planning of your own garden tea party by checking out this gallery.
Each season of the year offers something different for your hiking experiences, from the nature around you to the trails that are best to be taken. Spring offers amazing landscapes with the flowers and the returning greenery, though in some destinations there may still be some snow lingering! But, because of the freshness and “coming back to life” after winter hibernation, spring can be inspirational for you to try and hike a trail you’ve never tried before.
Of wildflowers, dandelions seem to be simultaneously ones that receive the least and the most love. Yes, they may not be the most beautiful flower that grows by the side of the road, but when a big enough of a group of them grows in the same spot, they create a gorgeous field to marvel at. But the best part about dandelions are that, after their bloom, they turn into seeds that look like puffballs, which will fly away if you blow on them—and you ought to blow on them and make a wish as you do so; it just may come true!
When you go to the park to feed the ducks, by all means make a day out of it! Put together a basket of strawberry shortcake, your freshly picked strawberries or blueberries and/or whatever else that you liken to be in your perfect picnic, plus a blanket, and find the perfect spot at the park to lay down and enjoy some warm but cool spring weather along with delicious snacks and fresh nature.
This is a great activity that combines both the outdoors and the indoors, plus works great for home décor and as something to give out as a gift. You can even leave them in various spots to serve as a random act of kindness! All you need to do is find rocks that are flat—or mostly flat, a paint kit—and then let your colorful and creative side flow.
Besides dandelions, a variety of other wildflowers, many of them absolutely beautiful, pop up and bloom around the same time in the spring. They can make for a great DIY bouquet if you spend an afternoon in the nature soaking in the beauty you’re surrounded by, then picking a couple of your favorites for said bouquet.
No need to wait until summer comes along to start planting and preparing for your epic seasonal garden, you can definitely start it during spring already. Especially if you’re planning to plant fruits and vegetables in addition to—or instead of—flowers. Some fruits and vegetables expecting to be planted during the spring season are honeydew, cucumber, beets, broccoli, garlic, potatoes, onions and raspberries.
Especially in the later spring time, when the rain is prominent but no longer as cold, it can make for some fun times to go out and play in the rain. Your kids may love to spring around jumping in puddles, among various other activities, with or without the umbrella.
Spring is a fantastic time of year to play frisbee. Another amazing sporty activity to commit to in the springtime; whether that means putting together a group of people for a round or two of ultimate frisbee or just tossing it back and forth with a close friend in your backyard.
Late Spring is the season for farmer’s markets. Get your reusable bags and load up of fresh fruits and vegetables for tonight’s dinner. One of the yummiest and healthiest of the Spring Bucket List ideas!
Spring cleaning is an age old, universal activity where we clean our homes from top to bottom, getting rid of the old and no longer used, including thorough scrubbing and deep cleaning of various surfaces in the home. It may sound like a drag, but it can actually be incredibly cathartic, not to mention it is a much needed activity to do at least once a year, with spring being the perfect season for it.
Spring is the perfect time for travel in general as weather is likely to be pleasant, but the crowds are way smaller than a couple of months later for peak season. Spring is especially perfect for road tripping as you’ll get to enjoy all the newly lush and blooming scenery along the roads you take on top of the pleasant weather and small crowds at your stops along the way.
