Spring is HERE for many of us. If your kids are having some sort of cabin fever why not start the 1000 hours outside challenge. Kids Spring break week was a couple of weeks ago so we decided to head outdoors and participate in the challenge. If you head over to Instagram and search #1000hoursoutside you’ll find so many things to do outdoors with the kids. That means less screen time and more running around and getting that energy out. I’m rallying up a bunch of kids Spring outdoors activities you can do at home or go out to do. ( Depending on how this pandemic has been in your area) and a kids scavenger hunt below.
I’ve put together the ULTIMATE list of kids Spring outdoors activities.

Since getting into blogging Avery has loved grabbing my camera and taking photos anywhere. We bought THIS mini kids camera and he loves making his own content.
Stem outdoors experiment
This month we’ve partnered with Hood. They make a light-blocking bottle so we ended up doing this STEM activity that was fun and a way to get the kids outdoors.
Take a walk
It’s Spring so rain is inevitable. Avery loves to stay outside just to jump in puddles. Just make sure you have a pair of rainboots.
