Nature Journal - Take your child on a walk and see how many of our spring vocabulary words you can identify in your neighborhood. Take pictures and journal about everything you see so you can practice your new vocabulary words!
Write a Haiku - Pick a spring activity to write a haiku about. A haiku is an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables. Here’s an example: Walking through the woods. Saw so many pretty birds. Guess they're back for spring!
Other fun activities - Take a closer look at the plants around your neighborhood and try to identify parts using our plant vocabulary list. You'll find the largest trees share parts in common with the smallest weeds growing in cracks on the sidewalk. But remember that not every plant will have every part! - Go on a Spring scavenger hunt. Now that it's warm outside, make a list of outdoor objects (stop signs, pine cones, ducks) and try to find them all. - Go to the park with your favorite book and spend the day reading outside.
