Spring has sprung! – 2015

One of my very favorite readers has requested that I start doing weekly themes again. This makes me so happy!  I am thrilled to oblige.

 

Monday- Order your books from the library. Download Grieg’s To The Spring, Vivaldi’s “Spring”, The Four Seasons, Strauss’s Voices of Spring and Mendelssohn’s “Spring Song”, Songs Without Words.  Make “A Tree in Spring” : glue spring colored tissue paper cut or torn in very small pieces to a picture of a tree.

Tuesday: Tuesday Treats-make Spring Chick cake pops or “dirt cups”.

Wednesday: Go to the library and pick up your books. Take a nature walk. What signs of spring are visible in your area?

Thursday:  Make a rain gauge to go in your garden, measuring and marking an old peanut butter jar. Decorate with paint and stickers as you see fit. Do a “Drip Drop Splash” art project. This is done by drawing a spring themed picture on paper with markers and using an eyedropper or medicine syringe to drop water on your picture. Do this outside or in the kitchen.

Friday: Family Movie Night! Bambi is an appropriate choice. There’s a cute Bambi themed dinner here.  Pasta primavera and a salad would also work.

Saturday is Family Fun Day. We’ve got a birthday party during the day. Obviously, if the weather is nice, enjoy the outdoors. I think it’s supposed to be rainy and dreary here. I think we’ll do this:

Alabama Spring Skies Planetarium Show:

Presented by Samford University Howard College of Arts and Sciences

March 26 – March 28, 2015

 

Free public show in Samford University’s revitalized Christenberry Planetarium! Great for scouts, school groups, clubs and everyone interested in astronomy, physics or science in general. The “Astronomy 101” show will be specially designed to acquaint new veiwers with our view of the skies.

The March 26 show will begin at 8:00 p.m.

The March 28 show will begin at 4:30 p.m.

Seating is limited, so plan to arrive a bit early.

Have fun this week!

    YAY, I love these posts!
    I’ve noted the music selections and I’m eyeing a marker right now, thinking about trying that splash art…. I’ve been hearing the frogs and birds singing their love songs; the grass is starting to turn a nice green in the pasture. (A sign of spring that I’d rather do without was the “slight risk” of hazardous weather in the forecast, oy.)

    Astronomy show sounds nifty, how cool would that be to visit (esp. on a crap-weather day and you can’t beat free!)?! Did you happen to see this past week’s 60 Minutes (CBS)? Toward the end of the interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, they showed a picture taken by the Cassini spacecraft showing Earth as seen from the rings of Saturn. Amazing. Here’s a link (the pic is at the bottom of the page):
