When I think of spring I think about riding bikes, taking nature walks, and using sidewalk chalk, all outside in the sun.
Sometimes the weather can turn on the chilly side or rain so we need activities to help enrich our kids inside. Spring is a fabulous season, with so many elements that make excellent themes for Fun Spring Activities for Kids!
