7 Spectacular Spring Activities For Kids

Dare we say, spring is on its way! Sure, we might have a few more chilly days ahead, but the promise of warmer weather and longer days is a very welcome thought. Spring is a season of rejuvenation, so it’s a great time to get the kids outside exploring new activities and breathing in that fresh air. From scavenger hunts to nature crafts (and, of course, Didicar adventures!), there are countless ways to make the most of this blissful season. Let’s take a look…

7 Spring Activities For Kids

Here are 7 spectacular spring activities to help you plan a memorable springtime season with your family. 

1. Outdoor Arts & Crafts

Set up an arts and crafts station in your garden or the local park and let your kiddies unleash their creativity! Provide them with paints, brushes, crayons, glitter glue, canvases, and any other art supplies you have to inspire their creative masterpieces. You could even ask them to draw or paint something that makes them think of spring, such as birds chirping or flowers blooming, to teach them about the different seasons

2. DIY Bird Feeders

Get crafty with your kids by making some homemade bird feeders! Dig out a few toilet paper tubes from your recycling (or forage for some pinecones), use a knife to spread some peanut butter around the outside, then roll the tubes in birdseed. Next, feed a piece of string through each tube and tie your DIY bird feeders onto a few tree branches in your garden. This is a wonderful way to foster a nurturing spirit in your littlen and will stir up lots of excitement when they watch the birds nibbling their tasty treats!  

3. Didicar Races

Springtime Activities: Two boys enjoying a Didicar race

Invite your kiddies to go head-to-head in a Didicar race, or join in yourself! Didicar is a one-of-a-kind ride on toy that’s cleverly powered by a wiggle of the steering wheel. It’s super sturdy and easy to manoeuvre (and can hold weights of up to 120kg - so the grown-ups can have a go, too!). Didicar is perfect for zooming about on smooth surfaces, both outdoors and indoors, so you don’t have to let any rain spoil the fun. Organise a family race or obstacle course and watch your dinky drivers have a blast while developing their balance, coordination, and gross motor skills

4. Garden Cinema

Host an outdoor cinema night for the family! Early spring is the perfect time to do an al fresco film night as the evenings are warm enough (especially when wrapped up under a blanket), but they’re not yet too light to disturb the viewing experience. Simply hang a sheet or set up a screen, scatter some cosy cushions and blankets on the grass, then snuggle up with a big tub of popcorn to watch a movie under the stars

5. Nature Scavenger Hunt

Take advantage of spring’s budding foliage and blossoming flowers with a nature scavenger hunt! Create a list of things for your children to find, such as different types of leaves, flowers, and bugs, then have them tick off each item they spot as they explore. This is a brilliant way to spend time in the great outdoors while stimulating your tot’s curiosity and appreciation for the natural world.

6. Scooter Adventures 

Spring Activities: Girl riding Pink Didiscoot

Hop on a Didiscoot and head to the seaside for a ride along the promenade, or venture into the woods for a scoot along some scenic trails. Didiscoot is an easy-to-ride scooter with a lean-to-steer design and three wheels to provide young kids with extra stability and support as they work on their balance and coordination. Alternatively, for tiny ones, there’s our best-selling Diditrike, which comes in 4 adorable animal designs

7. Spring Planting

Show your little sprouts the joys of gardening by getting them involved in the spring planting! Let them choose their favourite plants or flowers and help them dig, plant, and water their patch, or they could tend to their very own mini herb garden! Giving your kiddo the responsibility to care for and look after their plants is fantastic for their development and will help to nourish a love and respect for nature.
