Spring Break Bucket List
This spring break bucket list is full of family fun activities for the spring break from school. No worries, kids aren’t in school yet? This list is fun for families to use in the Spring anyway!
If you have other ideas that aren’t on this list, feel free to print the blank bucket list and create your own. It might be fun to let each person in the family add two activities so that everyone gets a say and a chance to do something they enjoy.

The Spring Break Bucket List printable includes activities like:
Pick and press wildflowers: there are so many fun ways to press flowers. Growing up, we used to put them between sheets of contact paper and then place inside of a heavy book to press.
Go fishing: if you don’t want to do the real thing, make a magnetic fishing game to play at home.
Build a pillow fort: grab all of the pillows in your house, some extra sheets, and your furniture and make the biggest fort you can!
Make a bird feeder: try one of these 2 Fun Bird Feeder Crafts to make with the kids. They will have fun, and the birds will appreciate it.
Play frisbee at the park: or head to a frisbee golf course if you have one nearby.
Make popsicles: we love these popsicle molds to make all kinds of yummy concoctions.
Go on a picnic: the kids can help prepare by making sandwiches, cutting fruit or filling water bottles.
Visit a museum: look for a museum with a theme that your children are studying in school, or about a concept they are interested in to make it even more fun.
Play hopscotch: get out the sidewalk chalk and draw this classic kids game for any age! It’s also on our list of games for 4 year olds too.
Paint rocks: rock painting can be unstructured and free, or you can make a cute story stone set. Check out our Story Stones for Kids ideas.
Go butterfly hunting: how many different butterflies can you spot? For fun, keep track of how many different sizes, colors etc. you can find. Kick it up a notch by raising caterpillars at home!
Go berry picking: check out a local orchard or farm and see if strawberries are ready for picking yet!

Hike: hit up a local trail and see how far you can make it!
Fly a kite: if you don’t have a kite, make your own our of a paper bag with a string tied to the handles. Kids will love to decorate it.
