The weather is beautiful right now, and it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the windy days, warm temperatures, and tolerable heat. There are so many fun things to do with your children during the Spring time. During the Spring, the daylight extended, allowing us more time to play outside before bedtime.

Everything outdoors comes to life during the Spring season. The flowers and plants are growing, birds are singing, animals are having babies, and crops are growing. It is a perfect time to water caterpillars turn into butterflies, see a tadpole change into a frog, or watch an egg hatch into a chicken.

If you want to teach your children about plants, this is the time to do it. You can plant seeds indoors, outdoors, or in a garden. Your children will love watching them grow with the help of the sun, water, and rich soil. If you like to grow vegetables, you can teach your children how to grow healthy food to eat. How cool would it be to pick vegetables from your backyard and serve them at the dinner table!?!

Whether you are keeping it simple with a walk or a bike ride or making it attractive with a homemade carwash or at-home bubbles, this is the time to get outside and explore the world around you.
