Free Things to do this Spring


img_1502A family-friendly outing in your town doesn’t have to cost a pretty penny. Most towns and cities offer tons of free activities — the trick is knowing where to look. Check out this list of springtime activity ideas that will get your kids out of the house, but won’t cost you a dime.

A. Visit a Local Animal Farm Baby chicks, lambs and piglets all make adorable additions to most animal farms in the springtime. Take your creature-loving child to your local farm to learn all about the wonders of new life. Petting Zoo.
B. Take a Hike At a state park or local hiking trails and spend the afternoon exploring nature. Your kids will love the fresh air and exercise. Go on a scavenger hunt for leaves, rocks, and other objects found in the wilderness.
C. Free Concerts Keep your eyes open for free concert series offered by area towns. A blanket, some snacks, and jamming to a local band can be a great way to spend a warm spring evening.
D. Get Lost in a Museum Most cities and town have any number of museums and many offer activities and workshops especially for children. Spend the day soaking up the culture at a local museum.
E. Help with a Community Garden Freshly grown produce will get even the pickiest eater to eat his veggies. A community garden is a great way to show your child how fruits and vegetables are grown, and fresh vegetables you reap will make a delicious (and cheap!) reward.
