EASTER, SPRING BREAK AND SPRING ACTIVITIES
Well...spring has definitely sprung, the snow is gone and it's so great to see kids on their bikes and scooters and just having fun outside. It's hard to believe it's only the beginning of April!
Spring.......the days are getting longer and the nights shorter. Isn’t it nice to wake up and there is some daylight?
Spring also means the 2nd quarter of school is over, conferences and report cards, and of course…..Easter and SPRING BREAK! What are your plans for the break? For the kids, there are a ton of camps offered. Spring break is also a great time for SPRING CLEANING and have the kids help. Before getting into all the activities, here are some ideas for Easter crafts/baking.
