Hello spring!

Spring is officially here, despite the chilly feeling in the air and the mountains of snow still around.  The melting period has begun and, before you know it, we will once again be seeing grass. 😊  For parents, it can be a challenge to manage your child’s outdoor clothes this time of year. Everything gets soaked so fast! I know my hallway is full of sopping wet mittens and boots and we are doing much more laundry these days.

Children tend to love the muddy puddle jumping and climbing the giant piles of wet snow.  If you find yourself needing a break from your children playing in the water or snow, encourage them to get out on a bicycle, balance bike, tricycle, or push car. Help them use any outdoor equipment that you have to go for a ride in a park, in a parking lot, or on a quiet street. It can be a nice change of pace.

There are a couple of spring outdoor safety tips I need to share. Watch out for gravel on the streets, and be aware of snow fort and tunnel safety all winter long, but especially now. Wet snow is more likely to collapse.  Still on a safety note, don’t miss our full day First Aid Course for Parents on April 23, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
