Goodbye winter! With Spring officially upon us, it’s time to start thinking about the great outdoors again. Life365 has put together a list of fun “growing” activities you can do with your kids!
Don’t forget that Mother’s Day will be here before you know it! Schedule a Mother’s Day portrait session and give the gift of amazing memories.
Grow Some Beans
Teach your kids something about plants and gardening without leaving the house! Your kids will love watching these bean sprouts grow over a few days. All you need are some beans, a glass jar, cotton wool balls, and some time! Get the instructions at theimaginationtree.com.
Paint Flower Pots
Take gardening one step further by painting some flower pots to be displayed outside. Let your little ones decorate the clay pots you’ll be using to plant your Springtime flowers and then work together to pick out some favorites and plant them! Click here for some design ideas.
Watercolor Coffee Filter Flowers
A colorful activity that only requires some coffee filters or tissue paper, water color, and some pipe cleaners. What mother or grandmother wouldn’t love a homemade bouquet of flowers from their kids? Find instructions at handsonaswegrow.com.
Make some REAL pretty flowers
Your kids will learn all about the science of transpiration! You just need some white flowers and a jar with water and food coloring. Put the flowers in the jar water and wait a few hours for the white petals to start changing colors. Learn more about this project and the science behind it at science-sparks.com.
Grow your memories – through photos!
With Mother’s day (and Father’s Day!) right around the corner, Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about taking some at-home portraits. Our professional photographers will work with you to make sure the perfect memories are captured. Decorate some space in your home, go outside, use special props, it can all be done from the comfort of your own home. Afterwards, you’ll work together with your personal portrait designer to turn your photos into the perfect gifts for mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, or anyone else in the family!
