Spring has Sprung!
Springtime is one of my favorite times of the year. How about you? The grass is turning a beautiful shade of green, and there are different kinds of plants beginning to bloom. Farmers are beginning to plant their gardens. So many things going on around us.
My most favorite thing to do in the spring is look for all the new baby animals. From the little birds chirping in the trees, to little bunny rabbits hopping in the fields. There is just something special about baby animals.
Here is something that may be fun to do! Ask Mom and Dad or a big brother or sister to take you on a nature hike. Take a camera or phone with you and just have a great time snapping pictures of everything you see that pertains to spring. Let’s call this the ABC’s of spring hike. When you get home use the alphabet to put your pictures in order. For example, look through your pictures and find something that starts with the letter “A”. This could be animals. Just keep going until your alphabet is complete. Don’t feel bad if you don’t get them all on your first time out. Just keep your eyes open, and I bet you will complete your list before you know it.
Here’s another idea! Take all your pictures, put them on a poster board and write about your journey to find those pictures. Just pick a few that were your favorites. This will be something you can hang in your room and maybe take to school in the fall for your friends to see.
I hope you have the best spring ever!
