  • On your way home from work or when you are running errands, pick up some flowers and spread them around the house.
  • Have a picnic dinner – even if it’s on a blanket in the family room!
  • Open the windows and enjoy the fresh air.
  • Grab your favorite mail order magazine and have each child pick out a new bathing suit or fun towel.
  • Have breakfast for dinner tonight with scrambled eggs. Eggs are the universal sign of rebirth.
  • Create a collage of your family’s dream garden. Have your child cut out pictures from magazines and catalogs.
  • Light candles, turn up your favorite music and dance…as the sun goes down!
  • After dinner, go to your neighborhood playground and enjoy the swings in the fresh air…even if it is cold outside!
  • How do you celebrate the arrival of spring with your child?
