An idea for spring outdoors with the kids

Join a local river/stream/beach clean-up!

Why do it?

Because it is sensory! ... Because it puts your kids in touch with the impact of human trash on the environment. ... Because it's age appropriate and even the youngest among us can make a difference. ... Because it is free! ... And, lastly, do it because your kids won't know how much they love to help unless you show them how good it feels, over and over.
