Spring is right around the corner, and with it comes fresh blossoms, warm breezes, and new opportunities to spend time with your family. But with so many possibilities, it can be challenging to decide on a few that the whole family will enjoy.
Luckily, we put together a short list of our favorite ways to welcome spring with the ones you love. Check it out and see which activities are a perfect fit for you and your loved ones.
Start a Succulent Garden
Among the creative ways to welcome spring with your family is carving a bit of time out of your busy schedule and starting a succulent garden. This activity is especially practical for working moms looking for a stimulating activity to do with their little ones. You can keep things as simple or complex as you like.
Maybe you’d like to make a day of it. If this is the case, you can take your children to the succulent nursery to pick out a few plants. Let them select their pots and take them home for an afternoon of gardening.
Or perhaps you’d prefer to stop by after work to pick up the supplies. Then, take the opportunity to do a fun after-school activity. Either way, creating a gorgeous, natural feature for you and your little ones to enjoy is a fantastic way to ring in the new season.

Take a Mini-Vacay
You can always take a little day trip to thank Mother Nature for the warmer weather. Pick a weekend that works well for you and the kiddos, and take a road trip!
Save the wear and tear on your car by visiting a site like StressFreeCarRental.com and renting a fun, family vehicle to kick off your adventure.
You could pack up some essentials for a day on the water and take a boat out on the lake.
Or you can use the opportunity to take a road trip to a national park that your kids will adore. The important thing is that you choose a destination that has as many activities available as it does opportunities to relax. After all, what makes a better spring activity than a chill, fun-filled day outdoors with your family?

Make Time To Play
Of course, sometimes, the most creative way to welcome spring with your family is just making time to play. The best thing about going this route is the options you can choose from.
If your kids love to conjure up make-believe adventures on the playground near the house, take them there! And don’t be afraid to join in. On the other hand, your family might enjoy sitting down for a night of movies and board games.
If so, have your little ones help you make a movie marathon list and dust off their favorite games. The point is, making time to be silly and play with your family is a great way to welcome a season full of wonderful new memories.
