Springtime is the perfect time of year to spend time with  your kids.   There are so many  interesting learning opportunities for you and your child to experience together.  Here are some suggestions:

A family picnic is always great fun.  Just pack  basket with delicious and healthy picnic food.  Bring some games, balls and books.  Take turns reading aloud and telling your  favorite stories.

Plant a vegetable or flower garden with your child. Youngsters  love digging in the soil and creating a living project through hard work.  So  find some growing space in your back yard or create a garden in a planter. Let your child help you  clear the area of weeds, prepare the soil, plant seeds or seedlings and water  the plants. Watch the plants grow with your child.  Your child will enjoy keeping a journal to  describe his/her daily observations of the plants.  Drawings of the plants can be included too.

Through nature walks, children will learn about spring.  Observe the leaves, buds and flowers on trees  and bushes.  Record the changes in  writing with illustrations.

On your walks, collect stones with interesting colors and shapes.  Your child will enjoy decorating these motivational stones with designs and words.

Enjoy Spring with your chldren.  Remember to SPRING INTO LEARING this season.
