Now that we are in the first week of April, Spring should technically be here. Even though, the weather isn’t officially here yet, the official Spring month is here. Being able to just take a nice walk outside without having to wear a big Winter coat and 3 layers underneath. Here in Massachusetts, we had snow flurries back on April 2nd; by the end of the day, it was sunny and warm. Let’s, just say we are waiting for Spring to be here in full force.

Spring Letterboard

To help you get into the Spring mood and one of the best seasons of the year; I rounded up 20 ways you can enjoy Spring for free or little to cost. The warm seasons go by so quick so spending less time in your home and outdoors is the best. Plus it creates such a positive outcome. Sometimes you need the inspiration just by being outside or around nature and enjoying the fresh air.

Bucket lists are so fun to accomplish. It’s always a list that you feel you have to do. It gives you inspiration and a better way to get things done.

    Hi Jalisa! This is a great list. My kids love flying kites!! And this is such a cheap activity because the dollar store usually has cute kites for a dollar. So everyone gets one, and if it flies away, it’s no big loss. Lol
