It's that time of year again! The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the whole family is ready to get outside. Explore the outdoors, discover fun nature crafts, and learn more about the world outside our doorsteps.

When we spend time on our stoops, take a walk around the neighborhood, or visit a nearby park, our senses come alive! We can inspire our children to observe and understand nature by listening for animal sounds, feeling the texture of rocks, seeing the shade made by the trees, smelling freshly cut grass, and tasting raindrops as they fall from the sky.
