The words “spring break” elicit smiles for almost everyone and this spring break bucket list will give you even more to smile about. The best spring breaks are the ones where memories are made.
How to Use a Spring Break Bucket List
A spring break bucket list is a tool to help your family create a fun family break. This is not a list to make you feel stressed out or like you have to plan every minute of the week.
This list is a jumping off point. My family looks over the list each year and we pick our top 5 to 10 ideas. My husband and I look over the top picks and decide which ones are feasible for our family.
We take into consideration our available time, budget and the weather!
The best part about starting out using a spring break bucket list is that it gets ideas flowing! I love to see what memories we have made by the end of the week.
Outdoor Activities on a Spring Break Bucket List
Spring time seems synonymous with outdoor time. Unfortunately, in March we are never sure what the weather will be doing. We have had warm, sunny spring breaks and other years it has been cold and rainy all week long.
If the weather cooperates my family loves to spend a large amount of our time outdoors checking items off the spring break bucket list. It is fun to spend this time outside before the humidity of summer hits.
Some of our favorite spring break bucket list outdoor activities are:
- Plant Flowers and Spruce Up the Yard
- Outdoor Scavenger Hunts
- Fly Kites
- Play Frisbee or Other Outdoor Games
- Roast Marshmallows in the Fire Pit
- Go On Family Walks
Indoor Activities on a Spring Break Bucket List
My family can have just as much fun indoors as outdoors and the list of indoor ideas doesn’t have to depend on mother nature. We like to get silly and laugh as much as possible.
Here are some of our favorite indoor activities on a spring break bucket list:
- Complete a Big Puzzle as a Family
- Write a Short Story Together as a Family and Act it Out
- Family Game Night (or day)
- Read Books
- Try New Crafts
- Make Homemade Ice Cream
Learning Activities on a Spring Break Bucket List
Spring break may be a break from school, but it doesn’t have to be a break from learning something new. One thing that is fun about spring break is that we can “learn” in an unexpected way that doesn’t even feel like learning.
My kids have been to the zoo countless times yet every time we go we all learn something about animals that we didn’t know before.
Visiting the zoo is common during spring break and it is always a great opportunity to learn new things in a fun environment.
Here are some other learning activities we like to do on a spring break bucket list:
- Go to the Library
- Visit Museums
- Drive Around the Country and Google Each Stop Along the Way

I LOVE these ideas Corinne! Thank you for sharing at Inspire Me Monday at Create With Joy. You are one of our Featured Guests! 🙂
What a great idea! I love that you have made a printable so that we can keep these ideas on the fridge or somewhere else that we can see them all the time. Spending time together this spring break is my top priority and will definitely be using some of these! Thanks.
Love these ideas! I don’t have kiddos myself yet but I am taking notes from your list and plan on completing some of these bucket list items myself this season! Particularly going on walks, sprucing up the yard, visiting a museum and reading more books! Thanks for the inspiration :).
