Happy Easter! I hope everyone enjoys their days with their families.

Yesterday was the first day that I felt like it was actually spring. The sun was out & Mai and I ventured out doors to take a walk. The wind was strong, but we were enjoying the fresh air & sun shine.  The green is starting to peek out from behind the melting snow in our yard. The warm weather is finally on its way & we couldn’t be happier.

After our walk it was craft time. To celebrate our change of season, we made a craft inspired by the four seasons.

Hand Print Seasons 

We painted Mai’s hand & arm in brown & stamped 4 separate sheets of paper.

Have your child imprint the winter sheet with white finger prints for snow & red, yellow & orange finger prints for falling leaves. Use green paint for the summer tree’s leaves & blue for spring rain. Let dry & frame your sweet little finger prints to enjoy the best of all the seasons all year round.
