After a long pandemic winter, the arrival of the spring season heralds an ideal time for children to stay active, stay engaged, and stay happy after many long months spent indoors.

Fishing and Wildlife Watching

Fishing is a great way to unwind and take in the sights and sounds of nature, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you’re a beginner, consider contacting a local guide, who will be able to teach you and your child the basics of fishing while also taking you to the best fishing spots in your area. You and your child will learn the correct methods for catching fish, all while having a blast together!

Take a Hike

A pair of good hiking boots and a bag are really the only necessities you and your child will need for a fun and exciting hike. Hikes are a terrific way to get outside and get some exercise at the same time. Depending on where you live, there are a wide range of trails available of varying levels of difficulty, elevation gain, and duration.

Take a Trip to the Zoo

Fortunately, entrance costs to zoos are often lower during the off-season, making it less crowded during the springtime!
