Fun Ways to Celebrate the Start of Spring!
Spring is finally here! The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are starting to bloom, and the birds are chirping. It's the perfect time to celebrate the start of a new season with your kids. So, here are some fun and creative ways to welcome spring into your home:
Plant some seeds!
Get your hands dirty and teach your kids (& yourself maybe) how to start a garden. You can plant flowers, vegetables, or herbs. It's a great way to teach your kids about the environment and where their food comes from while giving them a sense of responsibility!
Go on a nature walk
Take a stroll through your local park or nature reserve and enjoy the sights and sounds of spring! Look for birds, flowers, and other signs of new life. Be sure to bring a camera and capture some memories with your kids.
Have a picnic!
Pack a basket full of fresh fruits, sandwiches, and other snacks, and head to your local park for a picnic. You can also have your kids pick flowers to decorate your picnic blanket! Not only does this give you a breath of fresh air but it allows your kids to let off steam after filling up.
Decorate with spring-themed crafts
Another fun way to ring in spring is by creating spring-themed crafts with your kids! From flower crowns to paper butterflies, or birdhouses, these crafts aren’t only fun to make, but they also add some color to your home.
Start a spring cleaning project
Spring cleaning doesn't have to be boring! The start of a new season is a great time to declutter and organize your home. You can get your kids involved by having them help you clean out their toy boxes and closets.
Visit a farmer's market
Take a trip to your local farmer's market this weekend to find what fresh produce and other goodies are available! You can let your kids pick out their favorite fruits and veggies, and then plan a fresh meal around them for the coming week. For some hidden veggie recipes your kids will love, check out our blog.
Have a bonfire
As the weather starts to warm up, take advantage by enjoying crisp evenings with a backyard bonfire! This is a fun way to get friends and family together to roast marshmallows, tell stories, and enjoy some quality time with one another.
No matter how you choose to celebrate the start of spring, make sure to take some time to enjoy the new beginnings and fresh opportunities that come with the season. Remaining present in the moments of each day is the best way to express our gratitude for every season of life we find ourselves in!
