Seasonal Activities: Family Fun Ideas for Every Season


Each season comes with its own special kind of fun and brings families together, but it can be hard to come up with activities that keep everyone engaged and excited. Don’t worry, here are some fun ideas for all seasons. 

Spring: Blossoms and New Beginnings

Spring is a time of renewal and growth. While 80% of households plan their annual spring cleaning at this time, don’t forget to go outside with the family.

Outdoor Picnics and Nature Walks

Take advantage of the mild weather by organizing a family picnic in a local park. Bring along some delicious snacks and a blanket, and embark on a nature walk to explore the blooming flowers and wildlife in your local botanical gardens.

Visit a Farm or Petting Zoo

Many farms and petting zoos open their doors in the spring. It’s a great way for kids to learn about animals and farming. They can feed the animals, take a hayride, and even pick fresh fruits and vegetables.

Summer: Sun and Adventure

School’s out, the sun’s shining, and it’s time for some serious family fun. Here are some ideas:

Pirate Adventures

Transform a summer day into a pirate adventure. Dress Dad in a men’s pirate costume and commandeer a treasure hunt in the backyard. Hide small treasures and create a map for the kids to follow. 

Beach Day Excursions

Head to the beach with your sunscreen, swimsuits, and beach toys. Spend the day building sandcastles, playing beach volleyball, and swimming in the ocean. It’s a simple way to fully soak up the sun with the whole family.

Parent Pro-tip: Make sunscreen application a fun activity. Add dots of sunscreen to your kids’ faces and bodies and ask them to connect the dots. You can also use a makeup brush for a fun sensory experience.

Fall: Harvest and Festivals

Fall brings cooler weather and beautiful vibrant colors. It’s the perfect time to enjoy nature’s multicolored display through family outings and outdoor celebrations.

Pumpkin Patches

Many communities host fall festivals featuring games, food, and entertainment. It’s also the season for pumpkins. Visit a pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin for Halloween, and enjoy a warm pumpkin-spiced beverage. 

Indoor Basketball Games

As the weather cools down, indoor activities become more appealing. Set up an indoor basketball goal in your home or visit a local gym. Basketball is a great way to stay active and have fun as a family.
