I love seasonal observances with kids, and spring has to be my favorite season to observe. Whether or not you use themes/unit studies in your homeschool or classroom, there are lots of fun ways to include some spring activities into any curriculum. You might choose to center an entire unit around a springtime theme as well.
Following are some posts with lots of Montessori-inspired ideas for spring themes:
