Tomorrow, March 20th, is the Spring Solstice! It marks the first day of Spring (in the Northern hemisphere) and is a great excuse to get outside with your kids and learn about nature and even astronomy. Because, this year we will be having a solar eclipse AND a super new moon tomorrow. Pretty exciting stuff! The Spring solstice celebrates the vernal equinox (when the length of the day and the length of the night are equal), which also occurs tomorrow. Talk about a lot! Check out this post by Nell at Rhythms of Play for ideas for solstice activities:
-Get outside and connect- take a hike, observe new life beginning around you- find flowers, birds, and other critters .
-Plant new life- put a tree in your yard, or plant some flowers!
-Decorate eggs- get them ready for Easter, or paint a wooden egg for a craft
-Prepare a feast for family and friends.
