Start each morning with a sun salutation. Not only does yoga help create awareness of the body and mindfulness of the breath, but it also helps get the blood flowing!

Create a sensory room. Sensory activities are becoming quite popular in classrooms and for kids with special needs, but they are fun for everyone in the whole family!
- Mix sand and shaving cream to make a quick moon sand
- Make homemade slime with one of these recipes
- Boil spaghetti in colored water to create multi-colored fun
- Tie ribbons onto a hair tie to create sensory ribbon bracelets - perfect for a dance party!

Take this time to get your outdoor space cleaned up and ready for warmer weather! Start with this cute and easy #BirdFeeder made from reusable materials!
Here's what you'll need:
Plastic container (we used an old frosting container!)
Super glue or hot glue
An adult with a box cutter (safety first please!)
First, cut the lid of your plastic container in half and then cut a semi circle out of the base of the container. Glue the lid onto your container so that it lines up with the cutout on the base.
Decorate your container with a pattern or your favorite spring flowers! With your box cutter, poke two holes on the side of your container for a string.
Fill the with birdseed and find the perfect place to hang!
