This is a simple one:
Make sure to mention to your children that Saturday, March 20th is the first day of spring. Take your Outdoor Hour time this week to look for signs of spring in your backyard or neighborhood.
For many of us, this past week has brought warmer temperatures and with the time change, more light in the evenings. This is an exciting time of year for all of us as we anticipate the many changes the new season will bring.
Some signs to look for:
- Green grass
- Spring bulbs like tulips, crocus, and jonquils
- Birds, perhaps nesting already
- Warmer temperatures
- Blooming trees
You can use the notebook page below to record your signs of spring or you can use your own nature journal.
