Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real ~ March Adventures

Pretty ~
We spent a lovely day at a tree planting event.   The weather was perfect and there were lots of kid friendly activities. The kids went on a scavenger hunt, pony rides, jeep ride, planted a tree and got balloon hats.

Happy ~
I am so happy that our local art museum opened a new wing, complete with a children's hands-on area.  The city we live in is geared toward outdoor activities and tourists with lots of money.  The locals have a hard time finding things to do on the cheap when weather is uncooperative.

Funny ~
We attended a demo put on by a local robotics club.  Not the best photos since my kiddos were giving me funny faces, as well as the interior of the building was dark.  But isn't Little Red's sundress cute?  I just love to pull out the spring dresses.   They also had lots of Legos to advertise a possible Lego robotics club starting in the fall.

Real ~
Spring is in full swing and Easter is right around the corner.  By popular demand, I made a new sensory box for the kids.  They were tired of their Christmas-themed one.  LOL!  I will try to keep a monthly sensory box, since they enjoy it so much.

The sensory box has some of their spelling words, jumping jacks, egg-shaped sidewalk chalk, bouncing bunny, and two kinds of silly putty.

Please join Like Mother, Like Daughter for more entries.

  1. You guys always have so much fun. I wished I had even 1% of what you do. We save up for the science center when we go see my mom once a year. My kids are already talking about it and we are going in September. [o=

    Blessings and ((HUGS))!

  2. Your pretties really capture the blessing of those warm days! I can't wait for them again!

  3. Great new sensory bin! I like how you incorporated their spelling words in there. I will have to try to remember that.

  4. Glad y'all have a fun new place to visit in town! Looks like y'all are enjoying the spring! I need to work on a new bin too - I even have the stuff to go in it. *blush*

  5. Wow, it looks like Goldilocks is really sprouting up in height. Love the tree-planting fun.....sounds like a great activity day.

    The art museum's new wing is truly a treasure. I know y'all will really enjoy that in the years ahead.

    I just added rainbow rice to our sensory bin, but I hadn't thought of Easter grass.....great ideas you have there.
