Spring is both beautiful and fickle. One day it will be bursting with light and color, the next will feature heavy winds and rain. Dormant plants begin to unfold, winds pick up and it seems like new growth is everywhere. Children can be engaged in indoor or outdoor activities designed to celebrate the season.

1. Camp
Camping is a fun, inexpensive way for kids to have a change of pace. The best place to take little kids camping is in the backyard or the living room. While they enjoy the novelty of sleeping in a tent, they also get to use indoor bathrooms and running water. String white lights on the ceiling, where they can pose as stars. Use black paper and glitter so kids can create and name their own constellations.

2. Birds
Attract and keep birds in your yard with a simple bird feeder. To make a bird feeder, use a pinecone, peanut butter and a spoon. Use the spoon to scoop the peanut butter out of the jar, and spread it on the pinecones. Roll the pinecones in birdseed or sprinkle birdseed over them. Tie a string to the top. Hang your feeder outside.

3. Garden Party
The bright, beautiful days are perfect for a spot of tea. Ask friends and relatives if they have unwanted bridesmaid's dresses or gowns they are willing to donate. Collect them, along with any princess costumes your princess might have. Gloves or hats can be found inexpensively. Make finger sandwiches from peanut butter and jelly (check for allergies first), cheese or cucumber with cream cheese. Cut off the crusts and slice the sandwiches in to four triangles. Use warm water, not hot, to make the tea, and then allow it to cool. Rather than black tea, choose something such as mint or raspberry. Black tea has caffeine, and many people are allergic to chamomile. Set up pretty tables outside with tea cups, saucers and small plates. If going outdoors is not an option, have the guests decorate a room with drawings or cutouts of flowers and butterflies. Once the guests arrive, invite them to choose one of the dresses to wear at the garden party.
