Springtime is here in Florida, and the weather is perfect! Although you might be spending a little more time with your children at home nowadays, there are plenty of things to do around the house that are fun for everyone. St. Cecelia Catholic School explains in today’s blog.

There are all types of age-appropriate games to play. Games for youngsters often involve matching shapes, colors, and the like. Have an active game in mind? Hide and seek, red light/green light, and mother may I, are games that get your youngsters up and about. St. Cecelia has some ideas for you.
Springtime means rain. Go out and splash in some puddles. Not only is this a fun physical activity, but your kids get to do something that they may not normally do. While you’re outside, pick some spring flowers and bring them indoors.
Get out your extra sheets and make an indoor fort. Drape the sheets in between chairs, tables, and bookcases. Read books, play games, tell stories, and eat food in your camping space. Indoor treasure hunts get your kids up and active, too. Use some of their favorite toys or stuffed animals as clues. If you have books from the St. Cecelia library, they’re perfect for storytime as you wind down for a good night’s sleep.
More time at home means more cooking and baking. Try out some new recipes. Make some changes to your existing recipes to see how your kids like them. You could even create food that looks like real, everyday objects or animals. Think of time in the kitchen like craft time: you can be as imaginative as you want! For example, use gummy worms to put on top of brownies to make it look as if they are worms coming out of the ground!
St. Cecelia is all about building strong and connected families. Why not call a distant family member and have everyone talk on the phone together? Your children may have cousins in another state or grandparents who live in a city elsewhere in Florida. Give them a call and talk to them. Your kids would have fun talking with interesting relatives who live in far away places!
