8 Ways to Welcome Spring, No Matter the Weather

The calendar says that spring is here.  Winter is reluctant to leave these parts, but we're going to welcome spring with some of these activities anyway.  Here's how you can join us:

1.  Plant some seeds, inside or outside.  A recent post at Simple Bites demonstrates how to start seeds indoors.



2.  Make some colorful springtime snacks.

3.  Play a spring-inspired game.

5.  Sing songs or recite poems or rhymes (with actions) that celebrate spring, Easter, and/or Passover.
     
          Some possibilities:


6. Add flowers to your table or home decor.  Gather them fresh from outside or craft them inside.

7. Make a pitcher of fresh lemonade and invite a friend over to enjoy it together.

8. Sort through clothes and have a spring fashion show.  In the process, decide ahead of time what to wear to events like Easter or spring concerts.
