Spring has officially sprung, and I don’t know about you, but I am OVERJOYED. Honestly, Autumn is my favourite season, but there’s something so lovely about spring. I love that we suddenly start waking up to blue skies and crisp, yet sunny mornings. I love the daffodils that pop up EVERYWHERE (they’re my favourite flowers!), and I love going for walks in the countryside and spotting nature’s signs as everything starts to come back into bloom.
It’s also, of course, a fun season for the kids. Admittedly, they’re probably mostly excited about Easter, and who can blame them? There are Easter activities, Easter Egg hunts, so much chocolate, and other treats that it’s no wonder the kids love it so much. Best of all for all those school aged children, there are two weeks off school for the Easter half term!
Parenting during the Easter holidays can be tricky, especially if you’re a work from home mum.
As a parent, however, the idea of my kids being home and loaded on sugar for two weeks is kind of daunting. I love my kids dearly, but as a mum that works from home, I need peace and quiet.
It’s so important for my sanity, and also for my children’s development and entertainment, that I find ways to keep them actively engaged and happy during the season, as well as during the Easter holidays. It’s from this need to provide practical, fun, and engaging activities for my children, that the Spring Time Bucket list For Kids was born.
How and when to use the Spring Time Bucket list For Kids.
You can use this Spring Time Bucketist For Kids throughout the whole of Spring, or save it for when you need to whip it out the most – for example, during the 2 week Easter holidays.
It’s up to you how you interpret the tasks and how you use your Spring Time Bucket list For Kids. You may work through the list methodically, ticking off one item a day/week. You may find that not everything appeals to you or your children, and so you may choose to pick out only the ones that work for your family. You can work your way through the Bucket list as quickly or as slowly as you like, you can randomise the activities or let the children decide what they want to do that day/week.
There are so many ways to use this Spring Time Bucket list For Kids printable, and I really hope that the adults have just as much fun as the children when working their way through the list.
What type of activities are on the Spring Time Bucket list For Kids printable?
There is a mixture of fun and educational activities to do on the Spring Time Bucket list For Kids, and I’ve made sure to keep the activities as low in cost as I possibly could. Some activities featured on the list may need a bit of adult intervention, but there are also plenty of activities that can be set up for children to carry out without the need for supervision (or at least, not much supervision).
There are a few Easter related activities mentioned on the Spring Time Bucket list For Kids printable, and I understand that this holiday isn’t for everyone. I’ve tried to keep the number of Easter activities to a minimum, however, we all know that kids do love a good Easter Egg Hunt. If this type of activity offends you, please feel free to skip them and continue on with your list!
Will I need any extra materials on hand in order to complete the activities?
It’s possible that you may need to run to the shop to pick up some extra supplies, such as crafting materials, however, I have also listed these items below in order for you to quickly and easily add them to your Amazon cart (the joys of Prime, hey?!).
