We’re jumping for joy that Spring has finally arrived! It really felt like my neck of the woods got sort or gypped out of Winter this year. I think I brought out my heavy coat maybe twice! But that is absolutely fine with me, because I am crazy about the warm Spring temperatures and beautiful flowers blooming!
My toddler is much more interested in playing outdoors this season than she was this time last year, so we’ve been brainstorming and making plans about how we’re going to take advantage of the beautiful weather we’ve been having and get outdoors to enjoy it all before those harsh summer rays start creeping in. 🙂
We try to make it a point to get some quality outdoor play time several times a week. I believe it’s important to find ways to get kids playing outside ALL year long, and not just during the warmer months. In fact, did you know that encouraging outdoor play is scientifically proven to benefit our children physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively? Plus, there’s no cost to play outside. There’s a whole wide world out there ready to explore, and all it takes is your time!
If you’re looking to get outside with your kiddos during this gorgeous Spring season, here’s a few tips to help you get moving and enjoy your time!:
Take Advantage of Local Parks:
- Local parks are a total gem! They’re a great place to spend some quality family time while getting some fresh air and enjoying the outdoors. They’re totally free for you to use, so get out there and have some fun! Plus, now that the warmer months are upon us, there are lots of free local events that happen in communities all over the country, such as craft fairs, pop up carnivals, free events at Zoos, summer day camps, free events at community centers and churches, and even water parks!
Use Your Imagination
- Look for new ways to play outside with your kids, such as creating an obstacle course, going on a scavenger hunt, “gathering” sticks, leaves, flowers, rocks, etc. playing in the sprinkler, planting a garden, hanging homemade bird feeders, and so on. The possibilities are endless! The biggest limit to how much fun you have outdoors is your own imagination!
- Spring is always an exciting time because the short sleeves, sandals, and bright colors start creeping back into our wardrobe. However, it’s important to always check the weather before you head outside! If you live in an area where the Spring months are on the cool side, make sure you dress yourself and your child in easy to remove layers so they can stay warm when it’s cool, but don’t get too warm once they start running around. Don’t forget to pack the sunscreen!
- Choose Luvs – If your kiddo is young enough to be in diapers, make sure they’re wearing a diaper that gives you peace of mind knowing that even though they’re busy running around and playing, leaks aren’t going to hinder their play time and they stay dry and comfortable all day long. When we head outdoors to play, I always take Luvs with because I know they’re super absorbent and give me the most bang for my buck!
Luvs understands that between laundry, play dates, snacks time, outdoor play and naps, there’s zero time to deal with leaks. That’s why Luvs is the official diaper of experienced parents. They make life easier for busy moms by helping keep all contents of the diaper inside where they belong! The Super Absorbent Leakguards and NightLock™ Plus features of the diaper absorb a good bit more than traditional Luvs, and they offer a money back guarantee if there is ever an issue or you aren’t satisfied. I love companies that stand behind their products like that!

You can find Luvs and use this money saving coupon at any mass, discount or grocery store where Luvs diapers are sold. Just click here or click the coupon below to print!
Not only do we look forward to getting outside every day this season and playing and enjoying the weather, we’re also loving the fact that we’re protected from leaks and saving money by stocking up on our favorite Spring essential for babies and toddlers!
