Even though spring has been here a while, we've taken this last week to start doing more springtime activities. We worked on this spring book (from The Mailbox) for a couple of days.

We also tried out this yarn nest from No Time for Flashcards. It didn't look quite as good as a real nest, but we thought it looked pretty good for first-timers.

On Monday we were planning to take a nature walk and look for signs of spring (from an idea from the FIAR Spring Nature Study). Leslie had also suggested using a duct tape bracelet (sticky side out) for holding all those things found along the way, which seemed perfect for us since Jack can find a lot of things. Unfortunately, though, it was spitting rain and insanely windy most of the day, so we'll have to save that for another time.

Instead, we stayed inside and made dirt cups for dessert.

We made this little flip book (idea from The Mailbox) with thumbprint pictures.

Today we started a little journal for Jack. He does try to write words sometime, but he decided to dictate to me today. Hopefully over time we will want to write more on his own, but this is good for now!
