We went strawberry picking the other day and had so much fun! I wasn't sure how kid-friendly the U-Pick experience would be for little ones (ages 6,4,2), but they got the hang of it right away and did great not smashing all the berries or putting them in their mouths right away. I'm tempted to go again before the season ends!
(Locals, we went to Delvin Farms in Middle Tennessee, but a quick Google search will pull up any locations in your area.)
1. I grabbed this butterfly kit as a little "science experiment" for my boys. It comes with everything you need to watch caterpillars turn into Painted Lady Butterflies and we've loved it. Ours are about to come out of their chrysalides and we're all stealing peeks during the day. (Note: It's a little pricey for what it is in my opinion, but you can re-order just the caterpillars for a few dollars so I figure we'll get good use out of it over the years?)
2. This is an oddly specific thing to mention, but our kids have the hardest time getting all the soap out of a traditional washcloth so I switched to this silicone mitt and it's made all the difference. They each have one that hangs on a command hook and know exactly how to use it to clean themselves now!
3. A seriously high-rated game for rainy Summer days with little ones. They have lots of versions, so choose the one that best fits your kids' ages!
4. I've been turning on God's word first thing each morning and listening to a reading plan as I get ready, make breakfast, tend the garden, and even fall asleep each night. I avoided this app for a while (because it's $27/year) but haven't regretted it for a moment. I love the Bible version and voice options, as well as all the plans they have available. It's a great way to fill your mind with God's word!
5. Lastly, I heard this song for the first time in church a few weeks ago and still find myself turning it on almost daily. It's particularly beautiful for this time of year with everything blooming!
