Spring Activity Ideas

Throughout each season DD3 enjoys the activities I have prepared for her. Check out these lovely Spring activities from last year and some which I have been planning for this coming Spring. We can't wait to get started!!! Have you started planning your Spring themed activities yet? Please share in the comments below. :)

I cut out a cardboard butterfly and attached to a stick in the ground. DD3 chose bits of nature from around the garden to glue onto her butterfly.

Turn all those pesky plastic eggs, your kiddies won't let you throw away, into fun educational activities!! We use them to sound out cvc words by twisting and making new words and to revise timetables!!

Weave nature on sticks!!

Go pond dipping!! Our pond in our local woods is filled with frogs and tadpoles. The kiddies love learning about the frog and butterfly cycle. We will be ordering our caterpillars in a few weeks!
