The days are finally starting to feel springish .... hopefully I didn't just jinx us, Wyomingites!.
It's time to get out of the house.
Grab a sack and go on a walk. Let your kids lead--you follow. Encourage them to explore their surroundings and to "collect" things on the walk (though this might be a good time to explain that it isn't neighborly to collect flowers from other people's gardens).
When you get home, get a strong piece of cardboard and glue. Have your kiddo turn the collected stuff into a piece of art. Display it for one week.
