Celebrate the Season of Growth With Liv Multifamily
As the climate warms and days grow longer, nature springs back to life. Trees that have been dormant for months start growing again, and new plants begin to sprout up all around us. Animals that have been hibernating all winter slowly wake up and come out of hiding.
Springtime is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the warmer weather and extended daylight hours with family activities. If you're looking for ideas, we've got plenty.
Channel Your Creative Energy
Now that spring is just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about some fun art projects with seasonal themes. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Looking for some fun springtime activities? Why not try making a sensory bin with dried and dyed pasta shapes to create a butterfly life cycle, create some lavender slime with natural calming scents and ingredients. Another great option every kid will love is homemade Playdough.
Find Inspiration in Nature
For an innovative arts and crafts project, use flowers from nature to make suncatchers with your children. Let them gather the pressed flowers themselves for a fun activity. Use clay to sculpt a miniature house for the fairies, then use rocks, sticks, and plants to decorate it. A craft idea that is both fun and popular is collecting various flowers to make a crown or bracelet.
Cultivate Scientific Curiosity
If you're looking for a fun way to spend your spring days, why not try some science experiments? A simple and enjoyable experiment is to make color-changing flowers. Another interesting thing is submerging a leaf in water to learn how plants breathe. If Easter Peeps are lying around, see what liquid dissolves them the quickest.
Enroll in Art Classes
Enroll your kids in some spring-themed arts and crafts classes around Phoenix. There are plenty of places that offer painting, pottery, jewelry-making, and more. You can also let your kids show their creative side right here in the Liv community at our Kids Club weekly events which always have something fun planned, like arts and crafts.
Enjoy the Sunshine Outdoors
With the wonderful spring weather, take advantage and spend time outdoors! Everyone will be in good spirits because of the fresh air and sunshine. Plus, they'll be getting their recommended daily doses of Vitamin D. Just remember to pack some sunscreen and water bottles before you go.
Fun at the Playground
What kid doesn’t love the playground? With slides, climbing bars, swings, and other equipment, they get to have fun and be physically active at the same time. At Liv, our on-site playground means that families don’t even have to leave the community to experience the simple joy of some playground fun.
Gardening as a Family
Gardening can be a fun and rewarding experience for people of all ages, but it can also be a great learning opportunity for kids. While space might be limited in an apartment, Liv communities feature a community garden where residents can come together to plant and tend to flowers, fruits, or vegetables. So whether you're looking to get your hands dirty or soak up some sunshine, the community garden is the perfect place to do it.
Look for Treasures With a Scavenger Hunt
You can make any outing more fun by turning it into a scavenger hunt. Write down a list of items for your kids to find on your next walk around the neighborhood. Or, you could create a nature-themed bingo board. These activities are great for getting kids to take notice of their surroundings and learn about the world around them.
The Perfect Weather to Have a Picnic
Keep the outdoor fun going by having a picnic! You can save money and energy by preparing food ahead of time or making something fresh from scratch using Liv’s outdoor community kitchen. Not only will you enjoy a delicious meal, but your apartment won’t heat up from cooking, meaning you won't have to use extra energy to cool it down again.
Enjoy the Activities Close to Your Home
Phoenix is the perfect place to take your family this spring! With a wide variety of activities, there's something for everyone. Here are some great local options to add to your plans.
Visit the Many Museums Around Phoenix
Hands-on discovery awaits you at one of Arizona’s many museums and science centers. Among the most interesting ones, you can find the Arizona Museum of Natural History, the IDEA Museum, and the Arizona Science Center.
Take the Time to Visit Farmer's Markets

Go on an Expedition to Our National Parks
Hiking through Arizona's state and national parks is a stunning way to see how beautiful the desert can be. With the gorgeous spring weather comes the perfect opportunity to visit Catalina State Park, Joshua Tree National Park, or McDowell Mountain Regional Park. No matter which parks you choose to visit, ensure that you bring your camera and comfortable shoes so that you can explore easily.
