Gather these ideas like eggs in an Easter basket and get a head start on planning Spring Break, Easter Break and weekend family activities that you won’t forget.
106 FREE FUN FAMILY SPRING ACTIVITIES
In our home, we always try to make Sunday’s our family day. I’ve compiled a large list of things that don’t cost much to anything to do with your family this Spring.
It might be a good time to schedule a family vacation, or better yet a “stay”cation for those of you- like me- that don’t have the extra dollar to spend on a big expensive trip.
Oh, and these activities are totally doable with toddlers and babies. I’ll be attempting a majority of this list with my two kids under two.
Make this season one to remember. I’ve broken this massive list into different categories to help you get going quickly. Just pick one and your good for the day.
Here is to a beautiful new season and making memories with the ones you love most!

I love these ideas! While it is officially spring, I am hoping that Minnesota finally melts all the snow so we can do these suggestions.
I can’t imagine still having snow! We only get maybe a weeks worth around here! But the rain is at it’s finest

I love this list. Pinning for reference later.
I love these ideas! I can’t wait for the weather to be more consistently warm so we can do some of these things.
It’s starting to warm up around here, so exciting! Thanks Emma
Such a great comprehensive list!
Thank you Meredith! Happy Spring
This is such a great list! I feel like technology has interfered with allowing us to remember the simplest things. Thanks for the reminder. Spring time is my favorite season for a lot of reasons.
It is for us too! We love all the flowers and baby animals being born. It’s a special time! Enjoy the season 🙂
Such a great article! Definitely a list I will be revisiting, so many activities to choose from!
