“Spring Bucket List” – 25 Fun Things to Do

A spring wreath

I think spring is finally here! Better late than never….It is fun to create a “Spring Bucket List” and to come up with activities both you and your kids will enjoy. I have created “Bucket Lists” now for all seasons and I have an overall “Life Bucket List” too.

Here is my “Spring Bucket List”: (Might give you some ideas to create own)

  1. Adventureland (Farmingdale, NY) and/or Dutch Wonderland (Lancaster, PA)
  2. Buy some tulips/daffodils
  3. Get a ride on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle (This is on my personal “Life Bucket List”!)
  4. Go on a scavenger hunt with the kids in NYC (or in your local area)
  5. Enjoy the beauty of Brooklyn Botanical Garden or NY Botanical Garden
  6. Make a trip up to the Cloisters (Fort Tyron Park)
  7. Buy some scented candles and soaps at Bath and Body Works (Love, Fresh, Sunshine, Smile, Love, Happy sound like fun scents to me!)
  8. Have a picnic (weather permitting)
  9. Hiking and/or walk around the lake at Bear Mountain State Park
  10. Plan a NY getaway – Iloveny.com
  11. Stay at a hotel with an indoor pool
  12. Take a walk on the Hi-Line in NYC
  13. Travel out east to the Hamptons and the North Fork, LI in the off-season (Pick up some Rose Wine at Croteaux Vineyards – one of our favorites!)
  14. Go to the local park and play basketball
  15. Go to a baseball game
  16. Drive-in Movie Theater (Link to the 5 closest ones to NYC)
  17. Circle Line Cruise or Double Decker Bus (Who says you can’t be a tourist where you live?)
  18. Walk 10,000 steps a day
  19. Stand outside the Today Show with a sign
  20. Have a “Kaffee und Kuchen” (Coffee and Cake) Playdate
  21. Go to the NY Transit Museum
  22. Fly a Kite and sing “Let’s go Fly a Kite” from Mary Poppins
  23. Go Ziplining (Link to The Adventure Park at Long Island)
  24. Go for family bike rides (with helmets of course!)
  25. Go to doggie park with Max and Bella (our dogs)
