Let the learning begin! We all want the very best for our kids and that includes having the tools to help them develop and grow. Below are some exciting ways for your kids to learn this spring!
ARTS AND CRAFTS
1. Build it and they will come – Paint a birdhouse
The kids and birds will delight in painting their own little birdhouse the way they want it. The birds will love it too! Having birds around teaches kids about conservation of nature, with increased flower pollination and help in pest control. Such a fun activity that they can enjoy with nature throughout the year.

3. Get creative outside and draw your own world outdoors
Open ended play has many benefits in a child’s development. It is a chance for kids to build self-confidence and autonomy. They are making their own choices and using their imaginations to create something all their own. Chalk can help them put down wherever their imagination takes them.

Pretend play is important for those younger years to explore and discover, especially in the social and emotional roles of life. Here’s a great set of 60 dinosaurs neatly packaged in a tub. With 60, they can build their math skills too.
