I love each of the seasons for their own reasons. I love the new life and growth in spring.
I try to be intentional about making memories with the children. I made a summer bucket list last year. We really enjoyed it, and it made helped us to be intentional about our time together, so I am making one for the spring. Not all of these things are necessarily spiritual, but many (like gardening, rainbows, Easter, and learning about the creatures that God has made) if not all, open the door for many teachable moments. Far more often than not, quality time happens in quantity time! With faith at home, more is caught than taught.

I love this list. Great to plan for the spring and I am gonna add some of these to my list.
I did a fall list but hadn’t thought of doing one for spring. Thank for the reminder!
A great idea to make a list – I don’t think I could do all this – do you intentionally plan these activities into your calendar? 🙂
Yes 🙂 for the most part. It really does take being intentional.
These ideas are wonderful! I completely forget it’s almost strawberry picking season! Thanks for the reminder ahah!
Now that’s some list! I definitely want to try this with my family.
