Our March coloring card and sticker pack is all about Spring! Spring provides so many opportunities to introduce kids to the Science of our natural world. We’ve sprinkled some of these Spring Science teaching moments into our March Spring Fever coloring card. As your child is having fun coloring their card, and doing the activities, you can introduce them to some of these scientific wonders:

Then, take them outside and see how many other signs of spring you can find together. If you happen to live in an area where it is possible, you can also take a field trip to celebrate the science of Spring on “Big Night”!
