When spring arrives, moms get a little skip in their steps. The ice is starting to melt and cold fingers and toes are thawing, and that means the kids can go outside, play, and get some sun. Spring activities for kids are a breath of fresh air for everyone who’s feeling a little cooped up and stir crazy. Spring is also a great time to reconnect with your family before the home stretch of the school year.
iMOM has some fresh spring activities for kids to help get them away from screens and enjoying the outdoors, or—for kids still stuck indoors—each other. We have outdoor fun, indoor fun, family fun, and even road trip fun for a family adventure. And if you’re looking for a way to make this year’s spring break special, you’ll find that here too. So start exploring and enjoy what the season brings!
It’s above 55 degrees? Out you go, kids! It’s great to let the kids explore and use their imaginations to come up with ways to play, but you know they’re going to ask if you have any ideas.
