Hooray! It is officially Spring. We’ve got some spring activities for kids to play!
I am certainly ready to get outside again to see the sunshine. Bring on the spring activities for kids!
We’ve had a lot of rain here, and that has kept everyone inside a lot more than we’d like. On the bright side, I can see Spring signs everywhere, so warm weather must be getting close.
With that, I’ve created this roundup to give us all some more spring in our step as we go from puffy coats to zip-ups!
