Checklist for Spring Fun Readiness

Getting Prepared for Outdoor Play

By Sara-Lynne Levine March 15, 2023

Although we've had a pretty easy winter this year, many of us are excited for Spring. The first official day of Spring this year was March 19th, so now is the time to make sure we have everything we need for safe, outdoor fun with the kids.

Here’s a to-do list to help you get ready for kid-friendly outings.

Kid’s Clothes

  • ___   Check “spring” jackets and raincoats to see if they fit.

  • ___   Check out last year’s rain boots and try them on.

  • ___   Locate ball caps and sun hats.

  • ___   Spend some time with your kids trying on summer shoes, t-shirts, and shorts to see what fits and what’s ready to donate or hand down to the next kid.

  • ___   Start washing wool socks, sweaters, long underwear, and other winter clothes.

  • ___   Wash and put away snow pants, boots, hats, and scarves, and pair up mittens for next winter.

Outdoor Gear

  • ___   Buy sunscreen. You will need it before you know it.

  • ___   Check kids bicycles to make sure tires are inflated.

  • ___   Inflate basketballs and soccer balls.

  • ___   Check the condition of water gear and toys (if they grew mildew in storage, toss them).

  • ___   Inspect swing sets and play systems to make sure they are in good condition.

These are but a few great ideas to get you started. 

Do you have more?

Please share them with us and we will add them to the list to make sure everyone's ready for a most wonderful Spring and Summer season with their family.
