Spring feels like a lovely awakening, doesn’t it? After a long, cold winter, we all love the rebirth of all things green and flowery and feel of warm sun on our skin. And who better to celebrate these circle-of-life-highlights with than your daughter? Here are some favorite ideas for celebrating the season with your special little girl.
1. Listen to Springtime Music
We like the “Spring” movement from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. For something a little more contemporary, how about a song that celebrates life such as Simon and Garfunkel’s 1966 hit, The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)?
2. Take a Spring Appreciation Walk Together
Walk around your neighborhood or a local park together and point out all the new leaf buds, tiny flower blossoms, and other signs of life that are poking up now but weren’t there a mere few weeks ago.
3. Balance an Egg
The first day of spring is also known as the Spring Equinox—a time that marks the sun’s journey across our sky. Have you heard the rumor that only on an equinox day can one balance an egg on its small point? No one seems to be able to agree whether this is truth or urban legend, so why not try it out for yourselves?
4. Pick Wildflowers to Decorate Her Bedrooms
So often in early spring lovely signs of life and pretty blooms beckon us outside, but it’s still a bit chilly to hang out there for long. Pick some wildflowers together and set them up in jars in your daughter’s room, so she can bring the outdoors inside where it’s always cozy.
5. Do Each Other’s Nails in Pretty Easter Egg Colors
Looking down at your nicely manicured nails and seeing those pretty pastels will remind you about the joy of the season! And doing nails with mom is sure to be a treasured memory for your little girl. We love all the safe, non-toxic, and kid-friendly colors in our Disney Princess 15 Pack Nail Polish kit.
6. Experiment with New Hair Styles
Celebrate life and color by trying new hairstyles with each other. Try a fancy up-do with fresh flowers for you and a pretty ballet bun with other hair accessories for her. Give her new style a finishing touch with a brush, cute clips, and bows from our Trolls 6 Piece Hair Accessories Set.
7. Watch March Madness Together
Want to counteract all that frilly, beauty stuff with some appreciation for athletic excellence? After all, girls love competition too! Check out the excitement of March Madness with the whole family.
8. Go Puddle Stomping
Why does stomping your feet in a big ol’ sidewalk puddle feel so good? It just does! So gear-up with your raincoats, umbrellas, and, of course, your cute rain boots, and stomp away. It will feel amazing and you’ll be the fun mom for a while.
9. Find Stranded Worms for Your Garden
The sad part of all those early spring showers is seeing all those poor worms stranded on the pavement. Scour your driveway and sidewalk with your daughter to find those moisture-seeking worms and give them a new home in your garden. The worms will be happier, your garden will be more productive, and you’ll teach your daughter the importance of empathy.
