“Spring is nature's cry for love,” said Andrea Barani. “Spring is nature's way of saying: Let's celebrate!” said Robin Williams. Cristina Rosseti stated that “spring is when life is in everything.”

Spring is considered the most magical and beautiful season of the year, associated with the rebirth of nature, flowering, the end of hibernation or the return of migratory birds.

Furthermore, this season means that the days lengthen and the nights shrink, that outdoor activities return, that the orchards and fields begin to show the fruits of the harvest, the thermometers rise and the imagination flies. . Picnics are back, opportunities for excursions or the opportunity to walk on the beach, ride a bike or skate. And for boys and girls, the central theme of this blog, spring is an ideal and very special time to discover new things, develop hobbies or let curiosity shine.

At Cucamenta we have compiled eight new things that children can learn in spring.
