Ten “Must Do” Spring Family Activities

  • Taste Real Maple Syrup – After enjoying real maple syrup, you may not be willing to go back to the store-bought stuff. Better yet, attend a maple sugaring event and learn that maple syrup doesn’t come from a glass bottle, but a tree.
  • Plant an Indoor Herb Garden – A little investment in the spring could pay off well into the fall. Your cooking will also improve dramatically by using fresh herbs.Seasons_Spring
  • Visit a Flower Show – Whether it’s taking a walk in your neighborhood to see the earth waking up in flowers, or taking in the greatest flower show in town at Phipps Conservatory, nothing spells spring like flowers.
  • Go Fishing – Fishing creates bonds among the anglers and results in fish tales told for a lifetime afterward.
  • Church Activities – The offerings may be few or many. You will never know what you are missing unless you give it a try.  See how you can help your local church.
  • Nature Walks – It’s great to see the woods waking up after a long winter.
  • Identify Trees – See who in your family can identify the most trees. Trees that blossom with pastel buds make the woods fragrant and a glorious place to be in springtime.
  • Gardening – Plant a garden outside, or if that is too ambitious, sow some seeds in the dirt-filled Styrofoam cups and see what happens.
  • Go Bird Watching – The birds are especially active in spring. See how many you can identify.
  • Try a Scavenger Hunt – Set up your own scavenger hunt or use Popular Pittsburgh’s Walking, Magical Mystery Scavenger Tour of Pittsburgh.
