more spring activities for young children


As I sit and write this, I can see an icy freezing rain fall outside and hear the wind whip at the trees and windows. Mind you, it’s April 15th. And I know there are people who are currently enduring snow. I’m not a complainer, but I think we can all agree…it’s a bit much.

So, as I did last year when spring had an equally difficult time stopping by for a visit, I thought it’d be fun to find some fun springtime activities that we’ll be able to do with the kids. Eventually.

Ahhh, springtime. It’s been a little big time coming (and in some parts of the country we’re still waiting), so the first thing we feel like doing is cleaning, right?

But, there are ways to undertake spring cleaning without feeling like you’re climbing an impossibly high mountain. Here are some spring cleaning tips that I use to help me mentally and physically get the job done:
