Spring Activities for Families

Happy Thursday & Welcome to the Kid's Co-op! This is a weekly feature here at Local Fun for Kids.  I, along with a group of other bloggers, bring you the latest and greatest greatest kid-friendly crafts, activities, educational resources and recipes. 

I know many of us are in sports-mode right now. Spring is in full swing! On the go-dinners, late nights and schedule changes can be tough, but having the chance to spend more time with friends and seeing my kids do what they love makes it worth it.

Easy Ways to Welcome Spring With Kids

Most of today was wet and dreary so I'm doing a happy, spring-themed post to lift my spirits. To my family, spring brings lots of sports and outside activities. Chatting with friends beside the soccer field. Cheering on the kids as they hit a ball past second base. Chasing the kids around the neighborhood as they run from one activity to another. Enjoying walks with friends.

I have 5 easy ways to welcome spring and I want to share them with you.
