In New Jersey we get so excited when the weather starts to warm up in the spring. Being able to get outside and enjoy more of the day is always so enjoyable. I wanted to share 4 spring activities for kids that are simple yet fun. I’m also sharing the contents of our first Babbleboxx to incorporate into your fun-filled spring days!

Spring Activities For Kids
Have A Picnic
Getting the kids out to run around and get some fresh air is a great way to spend a nice spring day. Letting them pick out their favorite snacks and helping pack a picnic basket is even more exciting for them. Grab some bubbles, games, etc. and you’ve got a few fun-filled hours. Another way to add excitement to the day is to put these Lunch Notes From Me (from Wish4U) in the basket. These 2 books of tear-off notes featuring “riddles and giggles” and “facts and funnies” are tons of fun for the entire family and help to bring conversation between you and the kids.
Recently, my daughter has been asking me to leave her handwritten school lunch notes in her lunchbox and admittedly, I forget about 90% of the time. She was so excited to get these and I’m glad that I no longer have a reason to forget LOL. Just tear it off and drop it in their lunch/snack bag!
Build, Explore Create
I don’t know about you but our kids love to explore (and play of course). We love taking new adventures, visiting new places and trying new things as a family. I wasn’t surprised that our daughter absolutely loved the Kiwi Crate that was in our Babbleboxx. Kiwi Crate is a monthly subscription crate for kids ages 5-8 that’s filled with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) projects. It allows them to use their creativity and curiosity while learning about fun and interesting topics. Our Kiwi Crate was all about the anatomy and was filled with activities where she could put things together while learning at the same time. She was soooo excited to put together a stethoscope and listen to her baby brother’s heartbeat 🙂 Although she looks at it as just having fun, she was building, creating and learning all throughout her play time. This one would be perfect for a rainy day!
Go For A Swim
You don’t have to live near a beach or have a pool to have a good time! A sprinkler works just the same 🙂 Our kids love the water and any activity associated with it. Spray parks, pools, the beach, you name it and they love it. But with constant water play comes dry, rough and unmanageable hair. And if you ARE lucky enough to have a pool then you no chlorine is no joke on hair! The Snip-It’s Swimmer’s Solution helps to restore healthy hair and also works great for mom, too – use as a deep cleanser before chemical treatments!!! Snip-it’s hair care products are naturally-based and have allergen-free ingredients. They’re available in flavors kids love (like strawberry) and are gentle on not just their hair but also their skin and eyes. Snip-it’s Haircuts for kids also has 60 full service salons for kids haircuts across the country.

Hit The Park
One of the best ways to burn some energy and catch some smiles is to head to the park. We like to change it up and go to a different one each time we go, it keeps it fun! Throw on some comfy clothes and a pair of sneaks and that’s all you need. With our little guy still staying in the car seat/stroller most of the time I try to keep him in loose-fitting, comfortable clothing as much as possible. These Grow & Fit Bodysuits from Fruit Of The Loom are perfect. They’re made with an ultra-soft mesh fabric and sizes expand with your baby up to 6 months at a time. Our little guy is wearing a 6-12 month here and he’s 8 months. It fits great but there’s still plenty of room for him to grow.
The kids absolutely loved the items they received. Be sure to check out each of these greats products!
