On our walk today I took a bag and had the littles gather anything that they thought looked like Spring. It was a little sad. Some brown oak leaves, pine cones, and twigs don't exactly scream SPRING IS HERE!!! So I threw in a few dried flowers when we got home, pulled out some left over gold sticks from Christmas, and decided we'd make mobiles for their rooms. I just used black twine to tie our treasures to the gold sticks. And I let them choose what they wanted on their own mobile. They had fun directing what would go where, and argued a bit over whose pine cone was whose. For the record, the pine cone covered in bird poop wasn't wanted by anyone. And of course I didn't notice until it was all over my hands. Blech.
