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.

Be it a celebration of your spirituality, an end to Lent, or an appreciation for nature’s newness, there’s much to celebrate. Even just the return of a warmer season brings a simple, newfound joy.

If you’re having a fun celebration, taking some nice, dressy photos, or just letting the kids run around sans the heavy warm weather clothes, it’s a great time to show off your favorite fluff.
