Spring Bucket List for Families to Get Outside

This Spring Bucket List for families is a great way to make sure you get outside together this Spring and enjoy the season!

We love bucket lists at our house because we have so many kids running around and bucket lists help us to think of something fun to do without having to take too many votes!

We live in Wisconsin, so Spring is a bit of a celebration here when we finally stop getting snow on the ground! We love to celebrate the season by getting outdoors and planting a garden to watch nature comes back alive.

Celebrating May Day

One of our favorite Spring family traditions is buying small flowers and delivering them to family members on May 1st to celebrate May Day!

May Day is a holiday with a rich history. May Day marks the halfway point to Summer and has its roots based on agriculture. In ancient times, springtime celebrations began with song and dance when the fields began to sprout.

Some fun May Day traditions include dancing around a May Pole and delivering May Day baskets to friends and family!

There are quite a few fun holidays in Spring. Some of our favorites include: Pi Day, National Robotics Week, Earth Day and Easter.

Pi Day

March 14th is Pi Day! In honor of this international celebration of Pi, we’ve pulled together 14 great Pi Day activities perfect to celebrate with kids of all ages! Pi, or π, is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter.

National Robotics Week

National Robotics Week is celebrated the second week in April. Find the best coding robots for kids and get ready for this awesome tech week!

Earth Day

We love to celebrate Earth Day at our house! We’ve gone on virtual field trips to explore coral reefs, learned about monarch migration and made plastic bottle butterflies, and made recycled art sun catchers to celebrate!

We have even paired coding with learning how to sort our recyclables!


If you celebrate Easter, there are so many fun hands-on learning activities you can add into the holiday! Over the years, we have explored hexadecimals with Easter Eggs, Easter Bunny Egg Hunt Coding for Kids, and Easter Ten Frames Jelly Bean Math Activity!

This is a great list! I'm would change family walk to family hike, but that's because we are a big hiking family! I can't wait to go for a picnic too.
