May flowers… coming right up! We have had a cold spring (in fact we’ve had snow last weekend). I certainly hope the month of May brings us some warmer weather and some much anticipated flowers!

This month’s preschool / kindergarten calendar is going to focus on flowers, Mother’s Day, insects, and sunshine!

Yes, it may seem a little odd to make Mother’s Day crafts with your child, but these activities can be done for the aunties, grandmas, and other special ladies in your child’s life.

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