Spring is in the air! Daylight is a little longer, the sunshine is slowly starting to come out, Cherry Blossom trees are beginning to bloom, and children are getting antsy with anticipation to pull out their spring and summer toys and enjoy all the outdoor activities they love.

As we head into this season, make the most of it with your children by doing one of these fun activities together!

1. Go to a local beach

Bring beach toys to build a sand castle together. Prepare a simple kid-friendly meal, bring a blanket, and have a picnic while watching the sun go down. On a windy day, bring a kite and watch it fly.

2. Go to a park

Have your children bring along their outdoor toys: bikes, scooters, tennis rackets, jump ropes, and have fun in the sun together.

3. Go on a Hike

Drive down to a nearby mountain and enjoy some fresh air and exercise together.
