40 Indoor and Outdoor Spring Activities for Kids

40 Fun Family Activities: Spring and Rainbow

Who’s ready for spring?! After a long, cold winter, our entire family is ready for the change of seasons. If you are looking for fun play ideas for your toddler OR lesson plans for your preschool at home, these spring activities for kids will have your family learning all season long!

Hopefully by now, you’ve had a chance to download our FREE rainbow-themed invitations to play.

(If not, you can click here to sign up for that freebie.)

Once spring arrives, it’s much more fun to take “learning at home” outside. Whether you plant seeds, watch for birds to return, or dig into the rich, gooey mud, the possibilities for real-life learning are endless. As you know, I’m a big fan of open-ended play and learning together as a family!

40 Fun Hands-On Spring and Rainbow Activities for Kids

Spring is an excellent time to start (or continue) making learning FUN at home for everyone in the family. If you’re anything like me, you love spending time and making memories with your children. But sometimes, between the rush of work, home, and all those other items on our to-do list, “life” gets in the way.

As a former classroom teacher and homeschooling mom, I understand! I have a variety of family activity guides available in our resource library that allow you to stop planning and start playing. Our guides cut through the overwhelming number of ideas on Pinterest. They help you target your child’s next skills with a variety of simple and fun, hands-on learning activities.

Our printable Spring + Rainbow Activity Guide is for families with children ages 2-6. It includes more than 40 indoor and outdoor activities, featuring math, science, literacy, crafts and art projects, and so much more!

With just one click of the button, you can have immediate access to our spring activities for kids. You also get recommended books for your next library trip and a master list of materials (most items are already in your house!). AND — you also get our WEATHER-themed Family Activity Guide FREE, for a total of 80 hands-on learning ideas.

Best of all, our Family Activity Guides aren’t just something you download and forget about!

The guide comes along with a month of our membership programThe Play School Club.
