Spring is in full bloom – as we pack our scarves and beanies away for the season, you’ll find that there are plenty of fun family-friendly activities to do this spring.
Host a spring picnic party
Make the most of the warmer months and gather your friends and family around for a spring picnic party at your local park. As the weather heats up, make sure to pack a sun safe picnic bag that includes plenty of sunscreen, sunnies and some spare sun safe hats.
Bring a dash of colour to the skies with the old-school pastime of flying kites, a fun activity to get kids involved this spring. When you are out in the sun, always remember to be sun smart. Don’t forget to slip on sun protective clothing, slop on SPF30+ or higher broad spectrum water-resistant sunscreen, slap on a wide-brimmed hat, seek shade and slide on sunglasses.
Create a vegie patch
Grab those shovels and don those gardening gloves! Spring is the prime season to get planting and a great way to get kids involved in creating a vegie garden. Get your kids right in action by letting them plant their own seeds or seedlings, helping them to understand the journey from paddock to plate.
Bike riding is a great way for little adventurers and seasoned riders to get outdoors and active. Whether you’re venturing through the local neighbourhood, exploring the parks and bike trails, always stay sun smart when you are out and about. Engaging in regular physical activity offers several benefits and helps to reduce the time you spend sitting. There are heaps of ways to become more active, whether you’re walking with the family, taking up a sport or going for a bushwalk – the possibilities are limitless.
Just keep swimming
If you are looking to stay active this spring, there’s no better time to get out and enjoy the beautiful beaches. Whether you’re into ocean swimming or learning to paddleboard for the first time, always remember to slip, slop, slap, seek and slide and reapply your sunscreen every two hours when you’re in the water.
