April showers bring May flowers, right?! This month’s preschool / kindergarten calendar is going to focus on trees, birds, taking care of Earth, and gardening.

Since I made these calendars for families to use year after year, I left Easter out of the plans since this holiday can occur in March or April. We do, however, celebrate Easter. In the weeks leading up to Easter, I plan a number of educational and fun activities for my children.

One of our favourite Easter traditions is to do the Resurrection Eggs in the twelve days leading up to Easter. We also make cards, do some baking, and have discussions about God’s love for us and the meaning of Christ’s resurrection.

Are you excited yet?! I know I am! Here’s what’s planned for April!
