Looking for a few great spring activities for kids? Spring is one of our favorite times of year! After many cold winter months we really welcome spring with open arms.
My kids love getting outside and watching signs of life appearing all over the place! We especially love spring flowers and anything to do with bugs. That’s what I get for having a boy and a girl!
One way of really enjoying spring is to integrate preschool activities and kindergarten activities. For us we will use spring themed preschool worksheets or kindergarten worksheets and we also get outside as often as possible! We do lots of fun spring walks with wonderful discussions on growing seeds and renewed life.
Living in a country that experiences seasons is definitely a bonus as there are so many opportunities that present themselves as lessons that can be taught. Worksheets can really drive home important concepts.
I found having these printables on had makes my homeschool days so much easier. And I really love sharing them with you! I know there are homeschool parents out there just like me who enjoy fun and simple lessons where there children have fun learning.
Did you know printables can also help develop a variety of skills? No, I am serious. Some of these are:
- hand eye co-ordination
- 1 to 1 correspondence
- fine motor skills (think lacing cards and tracing lines)
- positional words
Quite frankly, as a homeschooling teacher, I believe that having access to worksheets is a fantastic resource. Not only can spring worksheets and activities be themed so that you can use them in whatever theme you are doing, they can be so easily duplicated for the number of students that need them. Take them to your next homeschool co-op or make duplicates for all the children in your home.
