Connect with Your Kids: March Activities

Save or Share:

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.  It’s the perfect month to have some fun with your kids both inside and outside.

Take some time this month to have some fun and connect as a family.  To make it a bit easier for you, I’ve compiled a list of ways you can make some family memories this month, including a FREE printable of conversations starters for your family!

A list of fun activities and ideas to connect with your kids this month: March.

Before you feel any sort of pressure to attack all of these ideas, let me assure you that I won’t be doing them all.

Instead, I’ve compiled this list for all of us to peruse and then purposefully select the activities that will work best for our family this month.  After all, we want to connect with our kids and NOT connect with a “to-do” list.

Connect with Garden Activities

March is the perfect time to get those seeds growing indoors so they will be ready in 6-8 for a transfer to the outside.

If you are like me, and gardening isn’t your thing, then it might be better to stick to 1-2 veggies planted in pots on the porch.  A wildflower garden is another great way to go!

1.  Plan Your Garden. (or pots for the porch)  I am not the expert on this one, but Betsy shared her garden plan.

2.  Plant Seeds Indoors.  Grab a stack of peat pots and start your seedlings inside.  Let the kids pick a plant that they would like to be responsible for and let them do the magic.  Personally, I’d love to see the kids grow their own cherry tomatoes this year.  That might be it in my house.  We’ll start small.

3.  Draw a Garden Spider.  Break out the chalk pastels AND get inspired by one of my favorite poems while you create this garden spider.

4.  Paint Flower Pots.  Grab your acrylic paints and brushes and let the kids decorate the terracotta pots for planting.  If you want to protect your pots, then finish them off with a clear sealer spray.

5.  Make a Terrarium.  This is an excellent alternative for anyone who feels a bit overwhelmed with the idea of planting seeds and gardening.  (ahem…me…ahem)  Here is are some simple instructions and inspiration.

Connect During Saint Patrick’s Day

6. Yummy Snacks.  Make a few green goodies to enjoy together on St. Patrick’s Day.

7.  Eat a St. Patrick’s inspired meal.

8.  Make St. Patrick’s Day crafts.

Connect With Irish Themed Poetry Teatime

15. Make a few treats. Plenty of St. Patrick’s Day ideas are listed above.

16. Read some St. Patrick’s Poetry.


Connect through learning on Pi Day

Pi Day is March 14th every year.   It is a fun day to introduce your kids to the mathematical number, Pi.  Pi is never ending, though we typically estimate it as 3.14 when solving problems, which is why we celebrate Pi Day on March 14th. (3/14)

9.  Discover Pi.  I think this is so important to do with kids.  Have some fun measuring circles and help your kids “discover” the number, Pi, on their own!  This “Cut Pi” activity will work perfectly, even for young kids.

10.  Activities for Pi Day.

Have fun with your kids on Pi Day this year!

10. Read a Pi inspired book.  Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi by Cindy Neuschwander and illustrated by Wayne Geehan.

Connect with Outdoor Time

11. Enjoy a Nature Walk. Try this nature scavenger hunt and talk about your observations.  Maybe some of these nature guides would work for you?

12. Make a bird feeder. The Homeschool Scientist has several great homemade bird feeder options you can try! The weather will improve near the end of the month, making it a perfect time to spy on the birds that gather at your feeder.

A few bird watching resources:


13.  Eat outside.  Whether it is on the porch or on the ground, enjoy a meal outside.  You could even have an outdoor poetry teatime.  This Winnie the Pooh themed poetry picnic would be perfect.

Connect with Conversation

14. Conversation Starters. Connect with your kids and enjoy funny, serious, and thought-provoking conversation with a full year of conversation starters.

I’ll be pinning ideas about connecting with my kids on Pinterest.  You can follow my Connect with my Kids Pinterest Board or follow all of my Pinterest Boards.
