Spring has SPRUNG!

Spring is finally here, yay!

Who doesn’t love spring, and after this winter we really NEED it! When we start to see those buds magically appear over night I think everyone silently breaks into their happy dance. It means warmer weather is here, and summer is just around the corner.

To many, spring is also that chance to accomplish the goals they put off all winter. Hey, it happens to all of us!

There is no better time than now to do some great projects with your classroom, your children, a niece or nephew, or even just for yourself. Little do it yourself projects are very satisfying, inexpensive, and exciting. The tough part is setting aside sometime to just enjoy this season. We know you can do it!

Why buy a kite, when you can make one yourself for those windy spring days.

The mom of this blog had the same thought!

With spring the sky is the limit, with everything from paper boats, to weather, to planting herbs, to cute little ducks. If you’re anything like us, we love pinterest and seeing what other educators and parents are up to.

So we here at Kaymbu made a board filled with easy spring projects you could do at home with your little ones, or right inside the classroom! Come check out these great ideas : )

Now that you’ve made all those great projects, take a break and read some books about spring under a shady tree.

This collection was put together by Amy Broadmoore over at Delightful Children’s Books and it’s fantastic.

Discover the list here: http://delightfulchildrensbooks.com/2012/03/09/spring-2/

Amy takes the time to tell what each book is about and what makes it special, so it’s definitely worth a look.

Have a great time completing your projects and enjoying this beautiful season.

Happy spring everyone!
