Spring Hands-On Activities
Spring is a great time of year to get outside, explore nature, and explore the world through hands-on activities.
Engaging in diverse spring activities allows children to develop their skills in problem-solving, creativity, and curiosity in different settings.
Encouraging kids to actively observe their environment is essential for helping them recognize patterns, create relationships between ideas and concepts, question phenomena, and critically think.
Discuss how the weather changes from winter or how it will change when summer comes. Explore the plants and insects they see around them.
It’s such a fun time to be outdoors when the weather is getting nice.
