Juice of Love Goodbye Winter Song

Set up a Maypole with a ribbon for each member of the family.
Walk the perimeter of your property with your children. Pick up litter and make sure everything is in order.
If you plan ahead, at Halloween you can purchase Faery wings for your child to wear at the local discount store for around $4.00.
Make flower pictures with cup cake papers. Have your child glue them down on paper and paint, color, or draw the stems.
When I was a very small girl in New England, we decorated our bikes, tricycles, and scoooters with crepe paper and had a parade.
Watch Disney's Robin Hood with your child. Then make cardboard swords with your child and pretend to have a sword fight. You can make a newspaper hat, paint it green, and stick a feather in it to look like Robin Hood.
Let your child dress up like the May Queen. Make a pointed hat with a large piece of paper rolled, and tape crepe paper streamer from the top. Decorate with crayons, stickers, and glitter.
For younger children, read "Rabbit's Good News" by Ruth Lercher Bornstein.
For older children, read, "How Babies are Made" by Andy & Steven Schepp.
