Easy Kid’s Activities Perfect for Spring

Moon sand is such a fun activity, Simple ingrediants to make and lots of fun will be had!

Spring is in the air and now is the time to enjoy some sunshine and fresh air. If you’re lucky enough to have nice weather that means parks, zoos, and patio weather! Pretty soon your kids will be having spring break or out for summer break and you will need some fun activities to keep them busy.  Lucky enough I’m sharing a few of our favorites today!  These easy kid’s activities are perfect for sunshine days to do on the patio or park but you can also do them at home if you are having a rainy or cold spring.

Moon Sand: This is a kid favorite. Moon sand combines baby oil and flour to make this soft sand like texture. It can be stored in a plastic container with a lid and will last a long time! Throw in some utensils and your kids will be busy for hours.

Play Dough: A classic activity that takes minutes to make on the stove and is WAY better than store bough play dough.

No Mess Painting    This is fun activity that we tried last week while on spring break. We had a bunch of rainy days so our outdoor fun was ruined. This turned out to be super fun and the kids loved it! The best part was they felt like they were really painting and there was NO mess on my part! A win-win 🙂

Kids can paint and parents can have no worries for a big mess!


Park/Picnic: A fun activity we like to do as a family is visit a new park. The kids love exploring and playing somewhere new for a change. Make it even more fun and take a packed lunch! Here are some special treats/picnic ideas that your kids will love!

  1. I love the no mess painting idea! It’s perfect for those days when you want to get them doing something creative but don’t have the energy to clean up an epic mess!

  2. I’m always looking for new activities to do with the children. Thanks for sharing! I love your ideas and i can’t wait to tell all my other mommy friends about it. God bless.

  3. These are great ideas! We love being able to take family walks and my daughter loves the abundance of muddy puddles in the spring! Thank you for co-hosting the #SmallVictoriesSundayLinkup with me!

  4. My 11 month old loves feeling different textures, especially soft fluffy things. I think he’d really enjoy playing in moonsand! I bet he’d even enjoy trying to help me make it. This will definitely be an activity we will do together sometime during this chilly week! Thanks so much for sharing <3

    1. Oh good! I bet he would love the moon sand too! It’s super easy to make! And the other good thing is that it does last awhile too 🙂

  5. This is great! Am definitely going to try the no mess painting! Picnics are a great idea too. We’ve already gone on several fully loaded with kites, soccer balls, and exploratory tools.

  6. It’s going to rain here all week, so I’m going to give the moon sand a try with Lucy (17 months)! She loves playing in sand at the beach so I think it will be a hit!
