Whether you celebrate May Day on May 1st or are looking for a way to bring the outdoors in this spring, we've put together five activities your toddler will love.
1. Your Friendly Neighborhood Flower Delivery Service
Have your little one pick and arrange Spring flowers into mini bouquets in their Original Learning Tower. You can use the activity to review colors, counting, and the names of flowers. Tie them in pretty May Day ribbon, and then hand deliver them to your neighbor’s doorsteps on a walk around the neighborhood.
2. Spring Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts are a great way to get kids outside, while teaching them about nature. Design or print out a May scavenger hunt that has them hunting for and identifying signs of Spring. Our friends at Living Montessori Now have put together a list of 50 Ways to use the materials you find on your hunt.
3. Farmer’s Market Finds
Head to your local Farmer’s Market to pick up some fresh local produce and use it to try a new Spring recipe with your little kitchen helper. The Original Learning Tower’s wide standing platform can fit two kids and hold up to 500 lbs, so you can involve all the little ones in the baking process.
4. Crafts that Bloom
Show your little helper how to press flowers so that you can have dried flowers on hand for future spring craft projects. Or, use the fresh blooms to create these gorgeous flower prints with watercolors. Your artist can dip flowers into paint, press them onto the page, and then clip their creations onto their Deluxe Easel to add details and to dry.
5. Dreamy Ribbon Dancing
Use leftover ribbon from the flower bouquets or whatever’s hanging out in your craft closet to make ribbon batons. Then, take them out into the May sun and dance (we promise this will also make for a whimsical, May Day photo opp, too)! (Image via KiwiCrate.com)
