Enjoy the Spring with Liv Multifamily
Just as nature wakes itself up from a long winter, so should we. Coming out of our homes more and getting some Vitamin D does wonders for the mind, body, and soul.
Spring is here, which means warmer weather and longer days! If you're searching for fun things to do with the kiddos this spring, look no further. We have everything you need right here.
Incentivize Creativity With Crafts!
Now that spring is here, it's time to start thinking about fun art projects with seasonal themes. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Stimulate the Senses
Assemble some spring-themed sensory activities. For example, you can use a colorful array of dried pasta shapes to craft a butterfly lifecycle sensory bin or create calming lavender slime with an all-natural scent. Making your playdough at home will be a hit for sure.
Create Crafts With Natural Themes
By involving nature in your arts and crafts projects, you can take them to a whole new level. Kids will love collecting and pressing flowers to create beautiful suncatchers. Create a miniature fairy house using clay, which you can then accessorize with rocks, sticks, and plants. Another popular craft idea is collecting colorful flowers to make a crown or bracelet.
There's no better way to celebrate spring than by learning something new. These easy and fun springtime science experiments are perfect for kids of all ages. One simple and delightful experiment is making color-changing flowers. Did you know that you can learn how plants breathe by submerging a leaf in water? You can also do a science experiment and see what liquid dissolves Peeps the quickest.
Take Your Kids to Art Classes
Get your kids excited for spring with some themed arts and crafts classes around Phoenix. You'll be surprised at the number of places that offer painting, pottery, jewelry-making, and more for children. If you're looking to stay closer to home, our weekly Kids Club always has different projects and activities available - many of which are arts and crafts oriented!
Spring is the Best Time to Be Outdoors
With the gorgeous spring weather comes the perfect opportunity to spend time outside! Vitamin D from fresh air and sunshine does wonders for everyone's mood, so take advantage of it while you can. Just don't forget necessities like sunscreen and water bottles.
The playground is a kid's paradise, and at Liv, we have an on-site playground for families to enjoy without even having to leave the community. Slides, climbing bars, swings, and other equipment provide hours of fun while also giving kids some much-needed physical activity.
Not only can adults find joy in planting and watching their flowers, fruits, or vegetables grow, but kids can too. And what's more, it's a great learning opportunity for them! Though gardening in an apartment is often thought of as difficult, Liv communities feature a community garden so that our residents can share the experience. You and your family can tend to plants together while also enjoying the sunshine and socializing with your neighbors.
Organize a Scavenger Hunt
Going on a trip? Make it more fun by turning it into a scavenger hunt! Write down a list of items for your kids to find while you're out and about. You can also make nature-related bingo boards. These outdoor activities are great ways to interest kids in the world around them.
Take Everyone to a Picnic
Make the most of beautiful weather and have a picnic! You can prepare your food in advance or use Liv's outdoor community kitchen to whip something up from scratch. Not only will you get to enjoy a yummy meal, but you'll also save on energy costs by avoiding having to cool down your apartment after cooking inside.
