It finally starts feeling like spring is upon us! The weather is starting to warm up a little bit and the sun is shining. If you’ve already hit all the museums in town, it may be time to get creative with some outdoor activities. In a past article we provided winter activities, and here are our top picks for spring!
1. Decorate the driveway with chalk
Coloring with chalk is always a good outdoor activity. Your kids can go crazy with the chalk, and it will wash away as soon as it rains…so it’s an easy/no clean up situation for you! Allow your kids to make whatever their heart desires, have a creative photoshoot or fill your sidewalk with inspirational messages. Pinterest is always a great place to turn for some inspiration!
2. Fly a kite
Flying a kite is something many of us don’t do enough of. Many toy stores in Luxembourg sell kites or you can make your own! This website is also a great resource for making or buying your own kite. Fly it in an open field and enjoy a picnic for the perfect spring day!
3. Take a bike ride
Biking is a great way to get some energy out and enjoy nature! Bike along water, through the woods, from station to station or just around the block! If you don’t have bikes or not enough for the whole family, you can rent them for the day or just a couple of hours. Check out this link for more information on biking in Luxembourg!
4. Start a garden
Gardening is a great family activity and it comes with great rewards. Read our past article for gardening tips, on how to get started and be sustainable. There are so many great gardening stores all over Luxembourg. If you want to get creative and make it a little more fun for the kids, start a fairy garden! Fairy gardens are a great addition to your backyard and can be as elaborate or as simple as you want.
5. Picnic in the park
There are so many great parks and trails in Luxembourg, why not add a picnic to make a day of it? This can also be a fun outdoor Covid friendly activity with friends! If you don’t want to drag your kids to a park just head out to your own backyard!
6. Go fishing
Fishing with kids might not be top on your list of things to do this spring, but it might be more exciting than you think. Rent a boat for the day or just fish right from the dock. The look on your kids face when they catch their first fish will make it all worth it!
7. Camp fire and s’mores
What better way to embrace the warm weather than with a camp fire! Another great way to safely gather outside with friends, make a night of it by grilling out or skip dinner and go straight to desert! There are so many creative ways to make s’mores. If it’s a rainy night, don’t be afraid to try and make s’mores in the microwave or over the stove!
8. Painting with flowers
As the flowers begin to bloom there are so many fun ways to enjoy them. Go on a walk to collect some for a bouquet, press them to keep the prettiest ones, or my favorite, paint with them! There are so many different ways to paint with flowers and make a beautiful creation!
9. Window painting
If it’s too rainy outside to paint with chalk, you can make washable paint to decorate the windows. This can be done inside or outside and is a great way to add some color to your life!
