Sand Activities for Learning

Playing in the sand is one of the summer traditions that you can enjoy anywhere! Whether you are at the beach, or playing in your own yard, there are so many fun ways that you can turn playing in the sand into a learning experience. My daughter loves playing in the sand, and she has been having fun creating new games to play in her sand table. Some of her favorite activities in the sand box are to build volcanoes using a funnel (she is currently obsessed with volcanoes), and finding her Little People dolls and animals in the sand. She likes when I bury them while she looks away so she can use her tools to dig them up.

And Then It’s Spring

Spring time means the dreary days of winter are behind us, and bright sunny days are ahead. I love watching flowers bloom and turn the world into a more colorful place. Today’s book and Spring activities recognize that the wait for Spring can be a long one, but one that is definitely worth it!

And Then It’s Spring was written by Julie Fogliano and illustrated by Erin E. Stead. The story follows a young boy and his dog as they plant seeds and wait for Spring to bring color back to the world. The simple text and whimsical illustrations provide the reader with the same longing feeling as the boy. As they continue waiting for Spring to finally arrive, they worry that something has happened to their seeds, and the world will stay brown. Kids may recognize themselves in the boy as he anxiously awaits the return of green. This book is a fun read for the Spring season, and provides lots of opportunities to have some Spring-inspired fun.

Easter Board Books for Little Ones

Easter is coming! I love all of the fun books available to welcome the Spring season and celebrate the Easter holiday. Whether or not you are religious, there are a wide variety of fun Easter board books to introduce the symbols and traditions of the holiday to the littlest of bookworms! There are books from some of your child’s favorite characters, as well as some familiar children’s book authors. I hope you find a new favorite to share with your youngest readers this holiday!

When Will it Be Spring?

Waiting for Spring to arrive can feel like it takes forever. We look for signs of Spring as soon as the temperature rises a few degrees. Today’s book is about an adorable bear who thinks he sees signs of Spring everywhere he looks. This book provides a great opportunity to get your kids looking for signs of Spring and to participate in some fun Spring activities.
