Spring is almost here! The weather is nicer, the grass is greener, and it’s time to head outside and enjoy the atmosphere with your family. In our house, we practically live outside in our backyard. If we’re not there, we’re out exploring southern California.

Springtime Activities for Kids

Here are some kid-friendly spring activities that we always enjoy.


Chalk Drawing
So easy and so cost effective!


Get Sporty!

Now’s the time to play your favorite outdoor sport: baseball, basketball, football, or just play old “tag, you’re it!”


Nature Walk

With plants and flowers coming in bloom, this would be a great time to explore nature.


Outdoor Crafts

Instead of being creative inside, we take the creative mess outside!


Planting Gardens

It’s fun and educational!


Easter Fun!

From painting Easter eggs to egg hunts, this is a great holiday for all sorts of interactive fun


Going to the Park

Great way for the kids to burn off some energy!


Go for a Refreshing and Delicious Treat

In our local neighborhood, we go to Rita’s Italian ice for some premium Italian ice with some creamy custard (made on site, of course!).


If you never had italian ice or frozen custard before, you’re missing out. Rita’s is famous for Italian Ice, which is available in over 80 flavors. It’s smooth,  delicious, made fresh daily, in store, with real fruit! Rita’s award-winning Frozen Custard is amazing as well! You can layer, blend, or drink the Italian Ice and Frozen Custard.


Southern California has an awesome chill factor to it, San Diego might have the most “chill” of all. On Sunday, March 20 (the first day of Spring), everyone gets free Italian Ice at Rita’s! They’re kicking off Spring with the #SoCalChill event in San Diego Locations. Grab the kids and head over to a Rita’s San Diego location and get a free cup of Italian Ice. Top that free ice off with a dollop of their award-winning frozen custard for only a dollar to enjoy the tastiest, most refreshing frozen treat you’ve ever had.


While you’re at Rita’s, remember to capture your favorite First Day of Spring moment and share them with Rita’s on Instagram & Twitter using the hashtag #RitasFirstDayofSpring for a chance to win FREE ICE FOR A YEAR! That’s right! All you have to do on Sunday, March 20 is post a photo of you enjoying your free Italian ice and the winner will win FREE Italian Ice for a year!!
