Free Fun Spring Activities

Free spring fun can be just a short drive away!

Spring tends to be the first time many families take to the great outdoors, especially if winter was particularly harsh. Even families on a budget can find some fun things to do in the warmer weather. Here are some free fun spring activities as suggested by us here at Lancaster Nissan.

  • Fly Kites – There are few spring activities as classic as flying kites with the kids. Grab some string, your kite, and an open area to let the kite take to the skies! Do your best to avoid areas with trees and bushes as they can damage kites beyond repair.
  • Ride Bikes – Whether the kids can already ride a bike or they have yet to learn, spring is the perfect time to take to the streets. Whether you’re hitting the local trails or sticking to neighborhood sidewalks, families of all ages and sizes are sure to have a blast!
  • Camping – Taking to the great outdoors in summer can be miserable, what with all the heat and humidity. Fortunately, spring offers the perfect weather for camping. Set up the tent in the backyard, prepare a small fire, roast marshmallows, and tell scary stories. Just be sure to check the weather first to ensure it isn’t going to rain!

Tips for Spring Cleaning

Warmer weather is finally rolling in across the country which means it’s time to start spring cleaning. From the windows to the cabinets, there’s a lot to do and most people don’t have a lot of time to clean. We here at Lancaster Nissan have a few tips for spring cleaning that will help you get a great start to a wonderful season!

  • Windows – While you may want to start with something easy on a sunny day, the windows aren’t the place. Warm sunlight can dry window cleanser before you have the chance to wipe it away, dirt and grime in tow. Dry window cleaner tends to leave ugly streaks that can put a damper on anyone’s drive for spring cleaning. Wait for a cloudy day to tackle the windows.
  • Doormats – There are few places that see more dirty shoes than doormats. If you haven’t already, adding a doormat immediately inside the house can catch any lingering dirt that didn’t come off on the outdoor mat. Make sure to shake and wash the mats thoroughly!
  • Brooms – A broom is generally thought of a tool used to clean, not something that needs cleaning. Even so, a broom still needs to be cleaned thoroughly. Use warm water or a vacuum to get rid of any dirt embedded in the bristles.
