…and then sprung back to winter and then returned for a bit…
Spring is a jerk.
But, with each day there is the possibility of outdoor shenanigans, and that’s always a good thing!
And we did more than throwing rocks into a stream in our outdoor times. We also gardened!
And since it takes a while for plants to grow and for there to be flowers and things, we made our own, and since it was also Earth Day, we used recycleables:
And I just realized I didn’t blog about the amazing amount of crafty good times we had for Easter. Maybe next time.
Oh! Oh, but we did also read some spring/gardening books too.
The Garden Monster by Patricia Reilly Giff This is about two friends and their dog Fiercely (yes, that is the dog’s name, how cool is that?) who have a garden they plant, water and protect from bug and beast… and also a monster? No spoilers.
Mama is it Summer Yet? by Nikki McClure This is a darling cut-paper illustrated book about the signs of spring and the things that happen during the season.
Feeding Friendsies by Suzanne Bloom This is ridiculously cute all about making mud pies and stick and twig stew (two of my favorite dishes as a kid) and has a repetitiveness that had the boys practically reading along by the end. So, that was super fun.
