Spring Day with the Kiddos!

Have you been sick recently? Oh man, if you haven't, lucky you! If so, I feel your pain!  I got this awful flu bug and it seemed to sweep across our whole family and then come back again! Argh! I do believe though, that I'm on the up and up! Finally!

Since I was finally feeling better, the kiddos and I had a Spring Day!

First we read books about in particular that is my favorite....

Bear Wants More, Board Book   -     
        By: Karma Wilson, Jane Chapman

We also read a book that I printed off and then we colored (you can print in color or black and white). 
They have many other books and activities for kids...

Then we talked about Spring and what we have started to see outside.... bird nests, flowers, green grass, etc...

After we talked about Spring, we went outside and did some fun Spring activities.
We planted seeds in pots.....but the most fun was...........


My son LOVES birds. He chases them in our yard and tries to catch them.  You may remember the birdhouses I decorated. If not, you can check them out here. Anyways, when I decorated those birdhouses I knew that my son would LOVE it, so I saved some for him to decorate.

He loved say the least! Look at that grin!

Look at the concentration! Next Picasso..what do you think? ha!

Super easy and fun...

-wooden birdhouses (I got mine from Michael's for .50 cents)
-acrylic paint
- foam brush

Just paint...go for it!  Enjoy!

Hope your day is filled with sunshine!
