Today is the day many of us have been thinking about since the cold weather hit—it’s spring! However, some of us are still feeling the icy chill of winter. It may not seem like it now, but soon we will be enjoying the sun, barbequing with our loved ones and heading to the pool. Below is a quick list of cost-friendly things to do once the weather finally does break.
Enjoying the warm sun, watching your kids play at the park and snacking on a sandwich can be a perfect weekend outing. All you have to do is grab a blanket, pack a lunch and you are ready to go! If you have problems keeping your soda can sturdy, check out our outdoor beverage holders. They make a great addition to any picnic or outdoor event.
Start a Kick Ball Team
Sports are a great way to have fun and socialize. Why not gather a group of friends and start your own kick ball team? Parents and kids alike can enjoy the fun. Get everyone in the spirit by getting matching T-shirts. Nothing says team like matching outfits.
After months of a closed up house it’s time to open the windows, let in the fresh air and clean up the clutter. To get kids motivated make a game out of the day. See who can organize their room the best. If you chose to do this, make sure there is a prize for the best room. It can be something as simple as a soda or more fun like a croquet animal game set.
Throw a Beach Party
You don’t have to live at the beach to party like you do. Go all out and buy beach theme decorations for the occasion. Find some great beach towels and hang them around the house. Cook some hot dogs and hamburgers and you are on your way to a great beach party—who needs the beach anyway?
This takes some planning, but who doesn’t like a good scavenger hunt. You can set one up in your backyard, enlist the help of your neighbors for a larger scale event or host it at your local park. Get your creative juices flowing and plan for a day of fun and excitement.
Although it might not seem like it now, warm weather will be here before you know it. It’s the first day of spring after all. Do you have any traditions you and your family like to do once the warm weather breaks? Let us know in the comments below.
