    It's correct, though 'What did you do last weekend?' sounds more natural to me.

    It's a correct sentence, however, it doesn't quite mean the same as "what did you do last weekend?"

    "Spend your time" is calling for a more detailed response about how the time was used.

    - What did you do last weekend?
    - I went to see my mother

    - How did you spend your time last weekend?
    - I spent three hours driving to my mother's, then four hours at her house, then out to a restaurant for dinner for two hours, then three and a half hours driving back home.

    Regards,

    Mark

    Actually, I thought of the same meaning of what you just explained about the sentence, "How did you spend your time last weekend? " . . . thank for your explanation in reinforcing my thoughts about it.

    More power!!!
