Spring is the perfect time to go outside with your kids, especially if they’ve been trapped inside all winter.  So what’s the first thing you should do?  Take a big breath in and soak up the sun!

Here’s a quick video to give you a few starter ideas to get active outside!

One of my favorite things about Spring is the emergence of all the baby animals!  Spring is all about new births.  Seeds are sprouting, baby animals are everywhere and everything starts turning green again.
