Things to see, things to make, things to read, things to do… so many inspiring small SPRING pleasures to be found all around…
:: Does your child like to ‘collect’ bits and bobs from nature when you are out and about in the world? Immy often comes home with interesting leaves, seed pods and feathers. I am loving this Fairy Loom from Paint Cut Paste, it is just perfect for storing seasonal collections.
:: Wherever you are in the world, these beautiful words and pictures about the importance of children being out and about in nature are inspiring – I Am a Child of Nature at The Magic Onions.
:: The beautiful Spring weather has reminded me to get out the pavement chalk to draw a hopscotch grid for our yard. For a whole list of good old fashioned outdoor games for kids (perfect for enjoying this weather), why not revisit this past post.
:: If you are wondering about the image at the top of this post, for me it is a metaphor for a mother feeling the need to escape, we never really could get away without taking everyone with us in some form, could we??? For more about how to escape on THOSE days when it all gets to much, check out my guest post from this week over at Picklebums.
