Keep reading for ideas on how to boost family wellness and fun this spring.
Sweat on a Hike
Going on a family hike is a great way to get outdoors and exercise together. Plan a day trip to drive to a beautiful new destination or explore your own community's nature. If looking for a longer experience, check out your state’s national and state parks for great camping spots and to make reservations. This way you can explore multiple hiking trails and not feel rushed. These parks also have a ton of activities the whole family will love such as fishing and swimming.
Plant a Garden
Spring is a perfect time to start that fruit, veggie, or flower garden you've been dreaming about.
Let each person pick out the seeds they'd like to grow (with a little guidance, if children are involved), or opt for mini starter plants and start digging! Learn how to care for your garden together as you watch your plants grow.
Try a New Sport
Maybe your family has been meaning to learn frisbee golf or test out a new pair of roller skates. Or perhaps you want to get together with friends and play a game of softball, kickball, or basketball.
Ask your family members what sport they've been hoping to try out and get everyone involved in the action.
Go for a Bike Ride
When it comes to family health, a group bike ride is perfect for getting everyone moving.
Bike around your neighborhood or strap your bikes onto a car bike rack and find new terrain. And if you have a little one who isn't old enough to bike yet, no worries! A bike seat or trailer lets them come along on the fun too.
Fly a Kite
On the ultimate list of spring activities, what's more fun than flying a kite? This is an especially great activity for letting your kids run around to get out all of that spring energy. To make it even more fun, you can DIY your own kite. You can find some ideas and DIY directions on our Pinterest here: https://www.pinterest.com/getcompletecare/diy-craft-and-ideas/
Walk Somewhere New
Take a family walk to the farmer's market, walking trail, playground, or nearby creek. You might even pack a picnic with snacks or drinks to enjoy once you reach a shady spot. It’s the perfect time with it being not too hot or too cold to explore your community or a new local park.
Take It to the Backyard
If getting in the car feels like too much work, there's tons of fun to be had right in your backyard. Get your body moving with some hopscotch, jump rope, or hide and seek. You could even get everyone together to create the ultimate family obstacle course.
Choose Must-Have Spring Outing Gear
Having the right equipment makes any activity easier and more enjoyable. If you're a new parent, a Breast Milk Travel Set or Nutritional Supplements can make all the difference when it comes to staying active and prepared. And if you're prioritizing exercise this spring, Compression Gear is a must-have.
