Spring is just around the corner. Here are some ways to celebrate the first day of spring in your child care program:
- 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.
- Create a Flower Handprint Mural with all the children in your class/group:
- 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.
