All Year Round week one: 7 Spring Ideas for Children

The All Year Round Blog Carnival began last week and already there are so many great spring posts linked up so a huge thank you to everyone who has taken part so far! I decided to feature a few posts from the carnival each week and here are just some of the wonderful ideas people have shared. You can see more spring posts, and join us, at the Spring Carnival which is open for new links until May. You can find out more about All Year Round here and also follow All Year Round on Pinterest.

We also currently have a spring giveaway for a copy of a little vintage book, I-Spy Wild Flowers. If you'd like to enter the giveaway please leave a comment on my A homemade Nature Study Kit and an I-Spy Wild Flowers giveaway post before 3rd March.
