We often know that Spring is on the way when we see leaves starting to shoot from the trees and daffodils and tulips begin to bloom. Officially, the first day of Spring fails on the 21st March apart from on years when there is a leap year, in which cause on every fourth year it begins on 20th March.

Spring allows children to explore the weather and how it changes over time. There are several toys in our range which open the topic of different types of weather and can aid learning about weather patterns like rain, wind and sunshine – even thunder and lightening! We suggest a starting point of discussing where rain comes from and why it’s needed for plants to grow.

In Spring we think about visiting farms to see the baby animals that are born, such as chicks and lambs. You could chose to use our Parents & Baby Bundle or our Ultimate Farm Animals Bundle to further learning, recreating the places that you visit and create small world play activities.

With the changing of the seasons, it’s always a good idea to have nature exploring resources – like our bug jars or magnifying glasses to really get in there and closing observe changes. You could also start a bug journal and identify different mini beasts learning about the role they play in your local eco-system.

In any case, we’re sure that you can find something to aid activities both inside and out.
