Summer is almost here but let us enjoy the spring weather and season as it marks the pre-vacation for the summer vacation to come. Spring is a great season to enjoy the outdoors without the scorching heat and to enjoy family time. Compiled below are 5 activities you can do to enjoy this season and prepare for summer vacations with your family.
Visit a Botanical Garden
Botanical gardens contain the most beautiful collection of plant species that are either lost in nature or have been safeguarded. Yes, there are flowers and trees everywhere we go, however, these plant species are conserved and maintained not just for research but for us to enjoy the various plants that are beginning to diminish. They provide a nice leisurely walk and way for us to connect with your family and nature.
Visit a National Park
If you are looking to escape technology and provide your children with a learning experience while getting them to be more present and active with the world, visiting a national park is the thing to do! National parks are affordable, convenient and have something for everyone to enjoy. It’s a place for adrenaline junkies and adventurers, where you can go climbing, zip line, snorkel, or dive to discover the depths underwater. There is room for adventure and to learn more about nature, the background story of the park, and even the state alone, not to mention it is excellent for our health. What a better way to spend spring than with nature.
Plan a Spring Party/Gathering
Connect with people beyond your family such as friends and neighbors. Open the doors to human connection, where you can bond or reconnect through food, drinks, and party activities. Make a day out of it and enjoy the company and the delicious foods!
Go to an Amusement Park
Channel your inner child by going to an amusement park to go for a ride with your kids. There is no better way of getting whisked away into a new world of imagination. The normalities of life and stress are lifted off to enjoy your time. You have an outlet to release tension on the rides that rush your adrenaline not to mention you can create memorable childhood moments with your kids.
Volunteer at a Shelter or Charity Organization
For those who are Samaritans, giving your time and service to shelters, whether it be an animal shelter or homeless shelter, or a charity, it can be rewarding for you and the people or animals you are helping. Many shelter and charities often look for people to volunteer and help out in their organization. You’ll get the first-hand experience of what it is like helping others, the work and dedication it takes.
Trying new adventures and activities encourages growth, curiosity, and connections with others. This spring, try something new and explore nature or reconnect with others and yourself. What spring activities do you like to do with your family or yourself? Let us know.
