Spring Things

Spring is finally upon us and we are welcoming the warmer and brighter days with open arms!  Here are 5 Spring Things that you’ll be finding us doing in the upcoming weeks.

1. [Eat]  A healthy and delicious frozen dessert that’s good for the entire family, AND only takes one basic ingredient?  Could it be true?  Yes!

2. [Grow]  Bring in some greenery with these adorable DIY “Chia pets”.  The kids will love personalizing their own planter and watching theirs grow.

3. [Read]  We’re ardent believers in reading to children as early as possible.  These 10 Spring-themed board books are great to read to your little one even year round.

4. [Clean]  You didn’t think you could get away with the “cleaning” part of “Spring”, did you?  The good news is this Spring cleaning tip from Eat, Craft, Parent:  It’s the perfect method for those with young children whose toys need a quick, natural, and effective disinfecting.

5. [Play]  This stove top-free playdough recipe is right up our alley.  We know the LOs will have hours of fun being preoccupied with the new batch of lemony-scented dough, and that means some downtime for all the busy mamas and the papas.
