Why would anyone live here, you ask? Because the lengthy winters make for a much-anticipated spring to enjoy with the friendly people this state has to offer.
You’ve seen your Little bundled up for months and they’ve made enough snowmen to start a small army. Just like the rest of us, they’re tired of winter activities and are looking forward to saying sayonara to the cold.
Luckily, Littles are nothing short of imaginative, and planning these activities should be enough to hold you and your Little over in the last hurdles of the cold stuff!
A Little Something to Get Started
Blow BubblesWhen was the last time you saw a grumpy person blowing bubbles? It’s basically impossible. Whether you go the classic route or try something a bit bigger, you’re bound to have a great time with your Little blowing bubbles.
Plant A GardenLet’s face it, kids are messy. Wouldn’t it be great if there was something you could do together that makes a mess and constructive? Well, there is! Break out the shovels and embrace your inner farmer and plant something with your Little. Before the last frost, you can even get an early start germinating seeds.
Draw With Sidewalk ChalkThere’s a sidewalk Picasso inside all of us, and seeing the things your Little comes up with to draw is nothing short of a good time. If they’re more of the active type, hopscotch might be a good option.
A Big Way to Make a Difference
Have A Spring Cleanup DaySeeing your Little care about their community is a big thing. You can grab some gloves, trash bags, and take a hike! It’s a great way to go for a stroll and get some fresh air, while also making our community a better place.
Earth Day RunOn the topic of caring about a trash free community, cheering on the participants of the annual earth day 5k could be a great way to spend the day. There’s a ton of kid-friendly activities and friendly folks that want to make their environment the place to be.
Nothing short of exciting happens when you gather a bunch of Bigs and Littles together in the same place. Check out these upcoming events that include everything from fishing to trampolines and get excited!
Attend a Big Brothers Big Sisters Event
You made it to the end of this blog, and before you know it you and your Little will make it to the beginning of spring. We hope a few of these ideas stuck, and look forward to joining you for the warmer weather and fun ahead!
