April. A month of pastel colors and decorated eggs. One that kicks off by celebrating jokes and pranks and wraps up with Easter and Earth Day. During the fourth month of the year, settle in to spring and have some fun with your Little. Here are 10 #LittleSuggestions for April.
1. Celebrate April Fools’ Day
On April Fools’ Day, have some fun with your Little and maybe play a kid-friendly prank on them. But, tread lightly. They may seek retribution or have something planned for you already.
2. See Shazam! (in Theaters April 5)
The new Warner Bros. movie “Shazam!” is about a child who discovers he has the power to turn into a superhero. All Littles have the potential to be super, so “Shazam!” would be a perfect movie to experience with them.
3. Try a Rain Experiment
April means April Showers. If having fun in the rain is out of the question, look into a rain experiment you can conduct with your Little.
4. Celebrate Easter
From getting dressed up, to decorating eggs, to participating in an egg hunt, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Easter with your Little.
5. Enjoy a Picnic
As the weather warms up, spend an afternoon having a picnic and watching the clouds with your Little.
6. Celebrate Earth Day
Earth Day is the perfect day to speak to your Little about the environment and the importance of protecting it. Ask what they’re learning in school about the Earth, and celebrate the holiday by planting a tree or building a birdhouse.
7. Participate in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day
Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is the fourth Thursday in April. Consider bringing your Little to your workplace and letting them experience what your job is like.
8. Play Some Sidewalk Games
Bored one afternoon? With a ball or some chalk, there are plenty of games you can play with your Little on the sidewalk, like hopscotch or two square.
9. Prepare Your Little for the End of the School Year
April’s arrival means the school year is wrapping up. Check in on how your Little is doing and set some goals with them for the final stretch.
10. Take/Plan to Take your Little to a Graduation
Graduations begin to take place in April. Ceremonies can be great for showing your Little how hard work in school pays off. Attend a graduation or make a plan to attend one in the coming months.
