Welcome, Spring (wormy friends and all)

It’s springtime! Which means lots of fascinating, earth-friendly adventures for little ones (check out our Instagram pics of some of our favorite spring adventures already)!

This time of year backyards (or a park or hiking trail) come to life with an endless variety of critters – birds, blossoms and bugs abound, making it the perfect opportunity for youngsters to explore the kaleidoscope of colors, sounds and textures their surroundings offer.

No surprise, we’re big fans of simple springtime adventures: tots crawling around in wet grass (April showers!), marveling at the texture of mud, dirt, and mulch, and making friends with worms of every kind. Signs of life – big or small – are a happy marvel for little hands and growing minds.

So grab your munchkins and venture outside! Wherever you go, we promise that your little explorer’s squealing delight is bound to be one of your favorite sounds of springtime.

They have already been there for a year and a half, and we have relished in hearing their stories. Continue reading The Kaisers’ Ultimate Family Adventure
