Spring Activities and Projects for Elementary Students

Spring is just around the corner, which makes this month a great time for planning fun, educational spring activities!

Spring should not be overlooked. After the deadness of Winter, God allows Spring to emerge and show us what NEW LIFE looks like! Take advantage of this time to explain how we are dead to sin, but made new in Jesus. Discuss what is happening right before your children’s eyes as the trees, flowers, insects, birds, and weather proclaim the glory of our Lord.

If you are a “step-by-step” planner, you can dive into some projects that take a few days. If you are a “fly by the seat of your pants” type planner, then load up some food, grab the binoculars, and take a picnic out in the backyard to do some observation fun.

Whichever way your family operates, there are fun times to be had as God’s world wakes up around us! Take the time to stop and enjoy the flowers a little more this year. You won’t regret it.

There are so many fun things to do with children during the spring. And none of them involve a dust mop and a broom! Put the Spring Cleaning aside, grab a cooler with some food, binoculars, a notebook, some colored pencils, and go hunt some flowers to draw.
