Listen to it! Check out this link for springtime tunes! This is a fun way for young children to learn about seasons changing and all of the fun things that come with spring. These are great resources to teach older children about season changes. These resources provide ways to explain season changes as well!

Volunteering! Spring brings in several opportunities to volunteer and help out communities! One of our favorite ways of volunteering is helping clean up public spaces. That means picking up trash around your neighborhood, your school, or even a local park you visit! There is no bad time to choose to volunteer and help out others.
