Spring Fever!

Catching the Wind

By Rhonda - Community Play Things

"March is famous for its blustery wind and for the “spring fever” that seems to give kids even more energy than usual! There are many ways to harness the power of the wind to encourage active outdoor play such as flying kites, making pinwheels, or blowing bubbles. Here's another simple, child-friendly activity you can try on the next breezy day: Wind Rings.

Find a ring about 4” in diameter, or make a natural loop by bending a thin willow cane into a circle (secure the ends with masking tape). Attach crepe streamers or ribbons to the ring.

Bring the Wind Rings outside on the next warm spring day and catch the wind! The circular design allows kids to freely frolic."
