Spring is here? Nope, not a typo. That was most certainly a question. With spring comes all the warm fun, for us, that’s flower activity based learning!
Those of us here on the northeast know that mother nature has been seriously confused lately. This past weekend we got a pretty serious April snow shower. If that’s not weird enough, it was 70 degrees just two days before. My mudroom is littered with flip flops, and snow boots because in any given week you’re going to need both. I’m over it.
It may not quite feel like spring out, but I’m ready to at least pretend with some spring activities and crafts.
Check out our Spring Time Roundup which includes 10 of our favorite flower activities and crafts. We can’t wait to get started on these!
