Early Spring Activities

Posted by Cecile at Saturday, March 28, 2009
The weather is getting nicer and the days are getting longer and it's time to get outdoors again and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Try some of these activities for a day of good, old-fashioned spring time fun.

1. Go fly a kite! March winds make this activity perfect. Find a kite that is bowed so that wind can spill evenly over the two sides of the kite; flat kites tend to be unstable, and we've found that cheap kites are most often the ones that work best.

2. Enjoy some swings. Few things make you feel more alive than a gust of wind in the face, and if you teach your kids proper swinging technique (push legs out when going forward, pull them in when going back), they will enjoy hours of fun without you having to push each of them!

3. Plant some pansies - the signature flower of spring. Find a sunny location with rich soil and good drainage, dig a hole deep enough for the soil and roots (holes should be 6-10 inches apart), and help your children place the pansies in their holes.

dito paiba iba ang weather eh, kaya nga nagkakasakit na kaming lahat. di ako makakapag tanim this time, kasi baka mamatay lang, at maglilipat kami pag balik namin sa July. Dun na ako mag garden sa Alabama, may spot dun para sa mga garden. Sana nga ma approve na ang loan ni Rodney..
