12 Interesting Spring Activities for Kids
    1. Plant something green in your garden: Whether your kids already know about seeds and plants and how they grow or don’t, it’s a good idea to introduce them to this wonderful concept. Let them water the seeds every day and watch the seeds grow. It will be fun for them to maintain a green book and record the growth of the plant by taking pictures of every stage and sticking them in their green book. You can even help you child identify the different parts of the plant. This way they will learn while having some fun

    1. Fun with eggs: This is one of the most fun filled spring activity for kids which the kids are sure to enjoy! All you need is a butter knife to crack the top of the eggshells. Make a hole big enough for the egg to pass through. Rinse the emptied eggshell and let them dry. Pour some paint into these eggshells and seal them with different tissue papers using glue. Now time to create a masterpiece. Get a blank canvas or a poster board and let your kids go crazy. They will have so much fun tossing the eggs and watching them splat. This way they create a nice piece of art which you can treasure!
