Natashia McLane, the blogger behind Canary Jane, shared some fun ideas for getting outside this spring.

Go on a picnic: make it color coded, or let your kids help decide the menu

Do bark rubbings: kids can become more aware of the trees around them and spark their creativity

Plant a garden: let children be hands on, and then help take care of the plant once it is in the ground

Dig in the mud

Make stick people: common supplies include pipe cleaners and glue

Tire Teeter Totter

Outdoor Olympics

Make a bird feeder: the options are endless with bird feeders

Paint a puddle

Make an obstacle course with outdoor toys

Go for a quarter walk, flipping a quarter

Paint or color outside on a blanket. Check out Natashia's free printables here.
