Spring has arrived and we’re ready to embrace it with open arms! ¡Llegó la primavera! Family walks through all the muddy puddles and melting snow, finally hearing birds chirping around us again, and switching our winter coats for spring jackets. Spring is a time to thaw, appreciate the beauty in new life around us, and bask in the sunshine!
The season brings a new lightness to my heart. Simply being able to get outside without all the winter gear and enjoy some much-needed vitamin D puts me in a good mood. Spring is the perfect time for a fresh start and new adventures.
After a long, enduring winter, the first signs of spring get me excited for all the fun outdoor activities my children and I can do together. Especially in the springtime, my family loves to be outside! In this post, I’ll share some of our favorite spring activities to do with kids, and of course, a free printable bilingual scavenger hunt!
