7 Spontaneous Things to Do this Spring

Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, winter is behind us and summer is right around the corner with warmer weather. This season, don’t miss out on all the sights and smells of spring. Do something spontaneous and enjoy all that this rejuvenating time has to offer.

Here are 7 spontaneous ideas to do this spring:


Create something

Getting outside can be the best way to spark your creativity. We encourage you—no, we challenge you—to get outside and write a short story or create a piece of art. You don’t have to be a great writer or artist to get those creative juices flowing. Sometimes it’s just fun to surprise yourself and see what you come up with.

Enjoy a picnic

Having a picnic outside is one of the most spontaneous things you can do. It can create lasting memories and make an ordinary meal extraordinary! Great for dates or with a group of friends and if the weather isn’t cooperating, remember that not all picnics have to be enjoyed outdoors.

Explore a park

Too often beautiful parks surround us and we don’t even know it. Most cities have accessible, spacious parks that offer a great place to sit outside and enjoy the season. Don’t forget about state and national parks too! Pack up the car and find a local park–you deserve a “staycation.”

Complete a DIY project

The web is full of amazing DIY projects that range from crafts to carpentry. Google search a fun DIY or search Pinterest for a fun project that you can do with friends or your significant other.

Eat at a new restaurant

Pick a four-star restaurant that you’ve never been to. Tried them all? Try one from a nearby town or city. Traveling to the restaurant might just create a fun story or memory.

Cook something

Search all of the random ingredients that you have in your pantry. Google will pair those ingredients to make a delicious meal. If you’re looking to step it up and impress then check out our unforgettable recipes.

Host a game night with friends

It’s a weeknight and your friends are sick and tired of the same old hang out. Rally them up and host a game night! Games tend to bring out the spontaneous nature in people. A game like charades or Taboo will have your friends dancing around and laughing all night.
