I love March with its promises of spring. As I thought about what I could plan for March, I decided to explore some spring themes… because after all, what’s March without rainbows and mud?!

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 March!
