Spring is here but in New Jersey, the weather is far from what you would expect for the season. We have the occasional “April shower” but are still experiencing chilly temperatures! As we wait for the warm spring weather and blooming flowers, we are thinking spring with some great titles for your little ones available for streaming on Netflix!
Curious George: Swings Into Spring
When George’s friend Hundley loses his way in the countryside, George takes to the skies in a wild adventure on a hot air balloon to find his pal!
Angelina Ballerina: Spring Fling
Spring is in the air, and Angelina and the mouselings dance their way through spring traditions from all around the world.
Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo
Spring has sprung, and baby Roo is excited to get out and explore and make new friends. But Rabbit seems preoccupied with spring cleaning, instead of embracing his usual role of playing Easter Bunny.
If your family is planning to grow a garden, here are some episodes to help get your little ones inspired:
Clifford the Big Red Dog
In Season 1, Episode 37, Emily Elizabeth and friends plant a garden for Keep Birdwell Island Beautiful Month!
Sid the Science Kid
In The Dirt on Dirt (season 1, episode 28), Sid and his friends learn all about dirt and how it helps things grow!
E and I are also “thinking spring” with some fun crafts and activities. We recently created some flowers with our favorite modeling compound and items that can be found around the house or can be purchased as a set. All you need is modeling compound, a small rolling pin and a heart shaped cookie cutters.
Simply roll out the dough and cut out a few heart shapes using the cookie cutter. Then using the end of the mini rolling pin, create a small yellow circle. After arranging the hearts into a flower, place the yellow dot in the middle.
Lastly, roll the green compound between your hands to create a stem and leaves. Voila! You now have a flower!
I’m really looking forward to warmer weather so that I can take the kiddos outside for some fresh air and outdoor play! They say April showers bring May flowers so heres hoping for better spring days ahead!
