Caden and I love to spend time outdoors and in nature no matter what the weather is, but especially in Spring after a long, cold, New England Winter. For this round-up I have decided to share some of my favorite Spring nature activities from across the web. I’ve included some great ideas for fun nature hikes and walks, ideas for nature notebooks or journals, some wonderful springtime nature tables, crafts with natural elements, sensory play ideas with nature, nature books about spring, and other fun nature activities! I’ve also included some of my favorite bloggers who write about a lot of nature activities!
