Spring into Learning Science

28 March



Spring is here, and with it there are so many opportunities for fun science activities! Everything from the new beginnings in nature to fun with Easter candy! Here I have collected a great collection, so you too, can Spring into Learning Science!


I have also teamed up with a few other amazing bloggers to bring you more ways to Spring into Learning! Spring Printables at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom, Spring Art at ABC Creative Learning, Spring Sensory Bins at P is for Preschooler, and Spring Nature and Outdoor Play at Stir the Wonder!

Before getting into the themed posts, I wanted to include this easy idea to get kids exploring outside this spring! Magnifying Glass Discoveries from Teach Me Mommy! Also if you have a kid who really enjoys technology, iGameMom even has a post about great Apps for Outdoor Science Learning!
