Plant a garden.

Grow the love for gardening earlier by planting outdoors or indoors. Here are some fun gardening activities for kids. You can even purchase a gardening kit to make the process even easier.

Wake up your home for spring.

Give back. 

There’s no excuse not to set some time aside this season to give back. If you’re doing some spring cleaning, set aside some clothes and toys to donate later. You can also think of ways to help out small businesses and restaurants.

Make a spring dessert.

There are so many seasonal desserts to enjoy now like lemon cakes or berry tarts. Start off with Hilton Chicago’s Signature Carrot Cake Pops

Indoor farmers markets are closed, but many of them are still offering pick-up and delivery options for customers. Start ordering with Green City Market and 61st St. Farmers Market.
