Spring is here!
And that’s the name of one of the books we had fun with this week: Spring Is Here!: A Story About Seeds (Affiliate link).
We started our fun by having lunch picnic-style (inside because the temps are still way too cold outside).
Then we read the book. Three times.
The 3 year-old loved how each activity the ants did rhymed with one of the ant’s names. He giggled non-stop. (Good thing we waited until we were done with the red Kool-Aid before I read!)
The book deals with some seeds the ants find and plant.
After waiting patiently, and having plenty of spring rain, the seeds grow into beautiful flowers.
Then we hit the great outdoors for a spring scavenger hunt. I gave each preschooler a picture list of some spring items to find, such as daffodils starting to poke through the ground and buds on the trees.
They had fun hunting for each item on the list. The toughest one to find? Bugs. It was just too chilly to spot many of the little critters today.
What ways have you been welcoming spring?
