If you’re looking for some things to do in spring with your family, this huge list of spring activities is sure to get you inspired!

Fall is my favorite season…but I think it’s safe to say that spring is right behind it. I love the feeling of excitement as everything slooooowly starts to thaw, watching the trees come back to life, and the anticipation in the air for summer right around the corner. Spring is a blast.

We often make a seasonal bucket list to really soak up the seasons – you can see our 2022 spring bucket list right here. This year, instead of sharing our family’s list, I thought I’d make one big master list of spring activities. This way, there’s no shortage of ideas for things to do in spring with your family!

So, buckle up and get your notes app ready. I’m sharing 101 different spring activities for your family. Use them to create your own bucket list, or just pick and choose a few throughout the season!
