Spring has finally arrived in most parts of the country, and, after the long winter many of us had, it can be tempting to get caught up in all the outdoor chores that await! But this year, why not take some time to celebrate the arrival of spring with your family? It doesn't have to be elaborate or expensive - just simple family playtime! Strapped for ideas? Well look no further, here are three of our faves:
Pack a picnic and escape for the day! Throw some sandwiches, snacks, and drinks in the cooler, grab a blanket, frisbee, or ball, and find a cozy spot where you and your kids can enjoy one another's company. A picnic is a great opportunity to get some fresh air and play together!
Hit a new playground or park! Nothing is as fun as an adventure; and any adventure that ends in a fantastic playground or park is bound to be a hit! Do a little research ahead of time and learn about new and fun play areas near you; maybe even do a quick drive-by before you make your plan!

Indulge a little; it is a celebration, after all! Whether it means giving in to the siren song of the ice cream truck, a quick visit to a local ice cream shop, or even just popsicles in the backyard, enjoy a little treat with your kids while they still think you are the coolest thing since sliced bread!
Wishing you a safe and happy spring!
