7 Signs of Spring
Use your senses to help you spot these 7 signs of spring!
Print out the Spring Bingo with Pictures or the Spring Bingo with Words and head outside to look for signs of spring. This is a great opportunity to get out of the house and head to a nature center where you will be sure to hear the call of the frogs and the pecking of woodpeckers! For extra fun and learning, try one of the accompanying activities below.
1. Flowers – early spring flowers that you might see emerging from the ground include daffodils, crocuses, and tulips.
2. Green Grass – the melting snow and spring rain helps our grass go from brown to green. To watch your own grass grow, try this fun Egg Head activity from Mother Natured.
3. Buds on Trees – buds contain the beginning of a leaf, shoot or flower. Create a tree bud observation sheet to record how the tree buds change. Choose a tree to observe. Draw a picture of what the buds look like and record the date. Every few days go to the same tree to observe how the buds are changing. Then, record your observation on your chart.
4. Robins – Robins are the first birds of spring. Watch for them as they begin to search for worms in the newly exposed grass. For additional activities, watch this video about robins and write down facts that you learned, see the lifecycle of a robin, or learn how to draw a robin.
5. Worms – if you dig into the soil or look on the ground after a heavy rain you will find earthworms. We like to save the worms after it rains and put them back in the soil. To learn more about worms watch this video or read facts about worms here.

6. Woodpeckers – You will often hear this bird sound before you see them. Woodpeckers use their beaks to peck at the bark of a tree to find carpenter ants, beetle larvae, and other insects. Did you know woodpeckers have super long tongues? Learn more here.
7. Frogs – This pond dweller is a springtime favorite and a very interesting amphibian to learn about. The lifecycle of a frog is amazing.
Watching the metamorphosis of a frog is a learning experience your kids will never forget.
