A Spring Fun To-Do List helps you make the most of the season now that warmer weather is here! I’m so happy to be done with cold, gloomy weather. Here’s my Spring Fun To-Do List to remind myself of all the fun stuff I shouldn’t miss out on. Let me know what you think is a must-do for the season!
Clean Out Your Closets
Have you read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up? Read be and be inspired to clean out your closet if not your entire apartment.
A new season always feels like fresh start and to me that involves refreshing my wardrobe.
So put away the winter items and get reintroduced to your lighter, seasonal pieces.
Toss items you’re no longer wearing. Give them to a younger cousin, a friend or donate to your local non-profit like a St. Vincent de Paul Store. Afterwards, you might just want to treat yourself with some new clothes too.
Cook a seasonal dish
One of the best parts of Spring is all of the delicious fresh produce that’s in season this time of year.
Make the most of it and visit a local farmer’s market so snag super local, fresh veggies and fruit.
Strawberries and asparagus are both available year-round, but have the best flavor when they’re in season from March – June. (This might be different depending on where you live!)
Add diced strawberries to a spinach salad to brighten up the greens and enjoy asparagus on the grill or sautéed with chicken.
Run a 5K!
You have endless options here! There are so many charity runs during the spring season so pick one and get out there for a good cause.
I like participating in spring runs before it’s the middle of summer and way too hot. Even if you’re not a runner, you can participate and support a charity by walking.
Pick Fresh Flowers
This one is easy. Pick some blooming flowers from your garden or the local shop.
Even though we’re experiencing a lot of gloomy half-winter/half-spring days here in Ohio, it’s nothing some bright colorful flowers can’t fix.
Treat yourself or surprise someone with some fresh blooms.
Visit a Local Park
Grab some friends or just your furry BFF and spend some time enjoying nature at a local park.
There are SO many here in Cincinnati and most of them include great views of our skyline.
Try googling local parks and events in your city to make the most of your green spaces that you didn’t even know about!
Take a Bike Ride
When was the last time you rode a bike? If you haven’t for a few years it’s seriously the strangest feeling haha.
Dust off your bike or rent one for a new way to travel. And if you loathe bike riding, just get out and walk.
Take a different route around your neighborhood and enjoy the scenery now that we’re no longer stuck inside from the cold snow!
Now that daylight savings has passed, it’s still light out by the time I make it home from work and the gym. Having a few extra hours of sunlight every day makes me SO much happier.
I plan to enjoy it fully by dining alfresco on my back porch and at local restaurants when the weather permits. IPA’s make perfect patio beers.
Ride some Roller Coasters
Okay, I understand this one might not be for you, but I just had to add it. I love visiting theme parks, Disney and Universal anyone?!
There’s something about rollercoasters that scare the living crap out of me and make me feel alive and fearless all at the same time.
I personally think it’s important to do things out of your comfort zone to challenge yourself in new ways and rollercoasters are always a step out of my comfort zone.
