So spring? Nice weather, beautiful flowers, and getting outdoors more. I just cannot wait to get started with all of these fun spring activities! I’m already planning my garden – filled with special raised beds that my husband will need to build for me so I can drive underneath them with my wheelchair.The raised beds are a really lovely solution to being able to grow a lovely garden from my wheelchair. It upsets me though that I cannot maneuver quite as easily on the ground. Y can access that much easier, but it’s too difficult for me to manage our garden if it’s directly planted into the earth, at this point.
The raised beds are nice as long as Y has a step stool or sits on my lap. We just both end up covered in earth. I suppose that will only get worse as baby girl decides to join, right? It’s also totally worth it to be doing something so fun together!
I’m so excited to get our herbs planted (basil, oregano, rosemary), and our veggies (tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, ohh and so much more!). I really want to get some flowers going, too, but I doubt I’ll have time for that this year. I’m already way overly ambitious with our veggie garden. At least our berry plants (black berries, raspberries, strawberries, red currants, blue berries, black currants) are all low maintenance.
Well, that was quite the gardening tangent! Why all the plants talk? Because I am unbelievably excited to start planning our garden, I have been incorporating more and more spring themed activities into our works. It’s so fun to think about all the extra time we will be spending outdoors! Plus, watching baby girl take it all in will be great!
For now, I’m sharing how we are studying spring – with a fun pin pricking work that is! This one is flowers themed and hence my long discussion of planting things.

How to use our flowers pin punching cards to create spring activities
A note on safety: Our push pin is not sharp and is large. This is very important, especially with younger children. Small push pins should not be used with children that still place objects in their mouths. Even with larger push pins, please monitor your children when conducting works like this!
