25 Things to do in Spring in Perth

Nature Play Wa presents 25 things to do in Perth in Spring! Let’s put the screens down and see how many we can tick off the list.

1. Go wildflower spotting: see the NaturePlay blog for links to the best places to find wonderful wildflowers!
2. Picnic in your favourite natural place: watch the sun through the trees & enjoy the fresh spring air.
3. Camp overnight in your own backyard.  In the morning, listen to the birds welcome a new day!
4. Build a cubby from cardboard boxes and tree branches.
5. Make a miniature boat from seed pods, leaves and bark.  Take it for a sail in a creek or lake.
6. Find a good sturdy tree and make a rope swing.
7. Take a photo of a tree at the start of spring and document its changes over the season.
8. Get together with your friends and go fly kites.
9. Build a vegetable patch and plant tomatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins or lettuce.
10. Build a giant sand person at the beach.
11 Make a necklace from dandelions or daisies.
12 Go bird watching; you might see babies in their nests.  Just watch out for swooping magpies!
13. Find a flowering wattle and describe its smell.
14. Find a great hill for rolling or toboganning down.  Grab a cardboard box and slide away!
15. Dig in the garden for worms.  How many can you find?
16. Collect natural things to make a hanging mobile or wind chime.
17. Make an insect hotel for your backyard.
18. Take your family on a bike ride and see how far you can go.
19. Collect fallen sticks and build a giant nest!
20. Build a birdbath from an old saucer, place it near plants and watch who comes to visit.
21. Go on a creature hunt.  How many insects and bugs can you find?
22. Create a journal of pressed flowers from your garden.
23. Build a scarecrow for your vegetable patch.
24. Go beachcombing.  How many cuttlefish can you see?
25. Visit as many nature playspaces as you can!  (See Play in WA in the Nature Play WA app)
