We’re halfway through our Easter holidays here already. We’ve been busy having lots of adventures. Today I’m going to share with you 30 spring activities for kids. Spring is a great time for trying new activities with kids. There are so many spring themes for learning through play with young children. Everything from farm animals to bug hunting and lots more. Read on to discover lots more ideas. I’m sure you’ll find a few ideas to try with your own children.
