Spring in Child Care

Celebrate Spring in Child Care

Spring is here, and it’s time for fun in your child care program! With warmer weather and new beginnings all around, there’s so much to enjoy together. Here are some simple ways to celebrate spring in child care:

  • Make Homemade Bubbles and go outside to blow bubbles or play bubble catch (one child blows bubbles and other child tries to catch them with hands or a butterfly net).

  • Create a gardening Sensory Table or Bin: Add dirt, plastic gardening tools, pots, seeds, and gardening gloves.  Include some large dried beans…they will sprout over a weekend quickly.   Also, check out our post on Individual Spring Sensory Bins!

  • Create a Flower Handprint Mural with all the children in your class/group:

Handprint garden - Great activity for the first day of Prep. Link broken but still a nice idea.

  • What is Missing?: During circle time, place several spring items on a tray and let the children look at the items for 30 seconds. Place a cloth over the items, then take one or more items away.  let the children guess which item(s) are missing.  Item Suggestions: Umbrella, garden shovel, plant, flower, rain coat, flower seeds, etc.
