GUEST POST 5 Thrilling Adventures to Enjoy with Your Family This Spring

Guest Article By Kenneth Reaves of

As the days get longer and the weather grows warmer, families break out of winter shut-ins in preparation for Easter celebrations. When fragrant blooms come out of hiding, and neighboring backyards become rife with the scent of freshly-cut grass, being outdoors is the first thing on your mind.

Maybe you’re overcoming jet lag on a cross-country trip. Perhaps you’re keen on learning how to fish . Whatever the case, springtime activities often spoil us for choice. If your family is looking to celebrate springtime on a budget, here are a few inexpensive ways to up the holiday camaraderie.

1. Go Fly Fishing

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to make it up to the mountains or shoreline to enjoy an afternoon of fly fishing with your family. Every city in the United States is home to various fly fish such as bass and carp.

Fly fishing is an excellent way to spend time by the water, surrounded by nature. Unlike regular fishing, fly fishing takes place in moving bodies of water and can pose a more exciting challenge. This thrilling activity is ideal for young, budding anglers.

2. Plant Flowers

There is no better time to make way for new blossoms than in the spring. If you tend to a garden, flowers can be beneficial for bees and other pollinators.

Planting is both an educational and exciting activity for the entire family. Other than young saplings, you can adorn your yard with accent pieces such as a miniature fountain, new walkway, or even a bug hotel.

3. Play Mini Golf

Nothing says social distancing like mini-golf! Whether at a regulated activity center or in your backyard, mini-golf is an enjoyable way to teach younger children strategy and control.

Consider shorter, 3-hole games, or turn your garden into a resort destination for aspiring putters. You can purchase affordable mini-golf sets at your local toy shop or browse more intricate packages on Amazon.

4. Visit a National Park

Whether for overnight camping or a fun-filled day trip, local state or national parks always have something in store for everyone in the family. With 29 must-see destinations across America, you won’t come across any shortage of stunning scenery and incredible history.

Take a trek, go on an informative tour, or snap an entire album of photographs in places like the Grand Canyon or Yosemite. You can make more than a handful of memories in just 24 hours.

5. Plan An Easter Egg Hunt

Who says a springtime staycation can’t be as fulfilling as a cross-country road trip? At-home Easter egg hunts are an all-time favorite that satisfies children of all ages.

Alternatively, you can transform your backyard into a full-fledged spring break sports camp with a badminton net, netball pole, or even a slip n’ slide. After the festivities, you can host a family barbecue or roast marshmallows after sundown.

There’s No Time Like Spring

Whether you’re spending your spring break fly fishing at the local lake or hosting an indoor picnic over your favorite sandwiches, nothing ties an Easter holiday together like your family.

Quality time is the basis of a healthy family relationship . Spring or not, staying connected with the people closest to you is the best way to spend any holiday.
