Spring Activities for Early Years

It’s time to get into Spring! The weather is officially looking up, the blossoms are coming out, rabbits are hopping in the fields and shops the world over are filling up with Easter eggs! What’s more, it’s a great time of year to engage kids, take on new aspects of learning and be inspired. As educators, there is nothing better than teaching something that you are genuinely interested in and excited to be covering, and we’ve included some spring ideas that are not only suitable for Early years age children, but in fact all ages.

Spring Activities for Kids

First up, this is a super popular activity that is quite simple – Sunflower Size Ordering Activity – but also very effective – especially popular with childminders. Put the sunflowers in size order as a warm up activity to growing your own sunflowers in your garden or just in a pot.
