Judy’s Spring Tool Kit

It is time to celebrate Spring. The excitement of renewal is in the air as the natural world around us is coming alive with birds, buds, and bugs. Farmers and gardeners are planting seeds. So, let’s learn all about the sources of our food, the cycle of life, and the importance of taking good care of our planet (Earth Day is April 22). We also celebrate Spring holidays, such as Easter and Passover, and in Japan, Sakura Matsuri, the Cherry Blossom festivals.

We bring all this to life in our preschool, parent/child music and twos programs with these books, songs, crafts, and recipes. Now you can celebrate and explore the enchantments of Spring with your kids at home!
