Spring Spotters

Spring is here! So I've done a little activity to get you out the house and use up some of the kids energy! 

Print this page for the kids, go on a little walk and see how many signs of spring you can spot.

Flowers and trees - New flowers are a great way of spotting spring. Can you find daffodils, bluebells and tree blossom?

Birds - Listen as well as look for birds. They get louder in the spring as they call to each other. Are the birds collecting leaves and branches? They might be building a nest. Robins like to look for worms and bugs when the soil has been dug. Can you see a Robin in your garden?

Frog spawn - Have a look in a pond. Can you see any small eggs like the picture? These grow into frogs!

Queen Bee - If you can hear a buzzing it could be the queen bee looking for a good place to start her hive.

Butterfly - As the weather gets warmer you might see butterflies in your garden or at the park.


Animals - Hedgehogs start to wake up from hibernation in the spring. Can you see any in the garden? Can you see their footprints? If you're lucky to live near a farm you might see lambs in the field as you walk or drive passed.



Ducklings - When your near to a river or lake have a look for ducks. Can you see any swimming with their babies?

Happy Spring Spotting!!!

  4. Spring is the most amazing season for discoveries after such a long winter! My son is nearly 3 and he loves to see what we can spot when we're out and about - he's loved the blossom and the daffodils so far, I can't wait for him to see the bluebells! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove
