Ultimate Spring Bucket List for Families

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you my Ultimate Spring Bucket List for Families. I originally put together this list in 2016, but as most of us are currently home with our kids, I thought it’d be a great time to update it and re-share.

This list was really fun to create because I sat down and really thought about all the fun things my husband and I want to do with the kids over the next couple months to celebrate the beautiful Spring weather ahead.

Even better, you’ll notice most of the items on my spring bucket list are inexpensive, if not free, and are very simple to do. Most of all the items on this spring bucket list can be completed in the comfort of your own home or backyard, and is the perfect excuse to get outside and get more active. This list is also a great reminder that it’s the simple things in life that matter the most, and being happy with the ones you love is what it’s all about.

Enjoy the Little Things Quote

Above all, I hope this spring bucket list serves as a reminder to slow down and enjoy the little things. My beautiful friend, Jennifer talked a little bit about enjoying the little things in her post this week and it really got me thinking about how we all really need to stop and pause to enjoy the beauty in the world around us.

Enjoy the pretty blooms on the trees that are budding around us, enjoy watching the gorgeous sun set, and enjoy eating 1…or 3 cookies with your kids or husband. Because after all, isn’t life meant to be enjoyed? Have fun, laugh out loud, and stop worrying so much about things that don’t really matter at all.

I hope you’ll print out my Spring Bucket List or create your own to enjoy the Spring season with your family. Think about all the fun things you keep putting off, and put it on your list, and accomplish it! Life is too short not to have fun!

    This is such a fun bucket list! I love it when lists like this are simple. That makes them much more likely to actually be done! I’ll be sitting down with my girls this evening to pull together our own bucket list (and will probably use a few of your ideas, too) Thanks!

    I love your list. I especially love the little things, like you mentioned, like blowing bubbles and watch a sunset. I definitely need to make time to enjoy all the things going around instead of focusing on the next thing. Thanks for the list and great reminder.

    • Thank-you! My kids help keep me in check on focusing on the little things. They are always so excited just to go outside at night and sit and watch the moon and stars. Definitely is a great reminder to stay grounded šŸ™‚

I’ve gotten a lot of mine crossed off, but I am still looking forward to a few, such as figuring out how to store all of potatoes we will have to dig up in about a month, and finally being able to move our chicks into their coop! Thanks for sharing your list! It has given me a few ideas for when I keep my niece in a couple of weeks!

    I’m all about everything on your list except fishing- never really go into it. Here in TX, we always make sure to take photos by the wildflowers as well.

    I love that you made a list of goals so that you don’t miss a thing! It’s so important to savor life and its beautiful weather when we have it!
