Spring is long-awaited, especially for students. The dark winter months can be tough on students for many reasons. It’s common to be stuck inside, unmotivated, and depressed during the winter months. The season is officially in reach, and it’s time to start looking forward to spring activities by creating a Spring Bucket List!

Here are 10 essentials to add to your Spring Bucket List…

Season struggles

The winter months can be difficult for everyone. The days get dark sooner and the cold limits the amount of available outdoor activities. It is easy to fall victim to seasonal depression and become unmotivated. Winter is known to cause a lack of energy, making it hard to stay focused and easy to become stressed.

Spring is long-awaited, and the sooner you make your bucket list the better! It will not only help the time go faster but allow you to prepare for everything you plan. Traveling during the Spring can be a blast, but you can have just as much fun doing small activities throughout the season as well.

1. Picnic

A picnic is a classic Spring activity. Pick a fun location and start packing the essentials. You’ll need all your favorite snacks, drinks, and of course a picnic blanket and basket. Whether you want it to be casual or extravagant, a picnic is essential for your Spring bucket list. If you want to hop on the new trends, bring a canvas, craft, or other fun activities along with you and pick a theme!

2. Tote bag painting

Tote Bags are not only cute but practical. It’s a perfect spring item to carry with you during all your bucket list activities. You can use them for books, flowers, or even as your picnic basket. There’s no better way to make your tote bag special than by painting your own design on it! Pick a tote bag of any color and choose your design. You are guaranteed to use it and it will be uniquely special to you!

3. Flower picking

Flower picking is the epitome of spring activities. There are many farms that allow flower picking, as well as just finding wildflowers along the road. Always be cautious of where you do this – but have fun! You can make a day of it and come home with a beautiful bouquet.

Beyond just flower picking, you can also go berry picking in many places. Gather strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and more! Make sure you bring a basket and prepare for a day in the sun. If you want to take this bucket list item further – plant your own flowers or start a garden!

4. Biking

Camping is a great activity to reconnect and immerse yourself with nature and get out after being stuck inside during the long winter months!

8. Drive-in movies

While going to the movie theater is fun, Spring is the perfect season to go out to the drive-in theater! The drive-ins make the perfect spring date with your partner or friends.

Spring is the perfect time to be outside and reconnect with nature, giving plenty of inspiration to journal. Some of the most popular journaling styles include bullet, art, and nature journals. Adding this to your Spring bucket list gives you an everyday activity that might just become your favorite hobby.

10. Spring cleaning

Spring Cleaning is an obvious choice for your Spring bucket list. The Spring season is the best time to reset and rejuvenate, so cleaning is the best way to get out of the winter funk and get ready for the spring weather. Cleaning can sound overwhelming or dull, but there are many ways to make the experience fun.

Open some windows, put your favorite music on, and get out your cleaning supplies. Take it one room at a time and clean at your own pace. Spring is the time to reorganize and get rid of things you don’t need anymore. Rather than seeing cleaning as a boring task, look at it as your chance for a fresh start!

Now you have some perfect items to add to your Spring Bucket List! Take your time to truly enjoy all the items on your bucket list and have a fantastic Spring Season!
