The BIG Cbus Kids Spring List

It is finally here! SPRING in Columbus can run the gamut from flip flops to snow boot weather. But one thing is for sure; there are tons of things you and your family can do to keep busy during the last few months of school. A lot of them seem to be indoors, as many outdoor events are not scheduled for these unpredictable spring weekends.

As always, I have organized these by date. Enjoy and as always, I will be adding to the list as local businesses adjust their spring calendars:


You can find tons of Easter egg hunts just by googling or using this listing
