Spring is almost here, and after the year we’ve all had, we’re grateful to see it. Though the pandemic hasn’t yet released its hold, there are some safe and fun ways we can celebrate at home or with our pod. Spring is a time to celebrate renewal, warmer weather, and the outdoors. Here are a few spring celebrations you can try this year.
Plant a Garden
This spring, consider doing something at home that can involve the whole family and give back to the environment. Gardening is a meditative activity that improves the look of your yard while enriching the ecosystem in your area.
Consider buying and planting native plants. In Georgia, here are just a few:
- Sugar Maple
- Eastern Redbud
- Georgia Aster
- Pink Lady’s Slipper
- Yellow Trillium
Check out your local garden center or the Georgia Native Plant Society to learn more.
It may not sound like much of a celebration, but spring cleaning is very cathartic this time of year. It’s a literal out-with-the-old, in-with-the-new activity. Spring cleaning is a long-held tradition and it’s intended to start the new season with a clean slate. You can reward yourself with fresh flowers once you’re done and make it into a positive experience for the whole family.
While we’re still being asked to avoid large crowds, huge springtime celebrations may not be in the cards. However, you can celebrate spring at home by pulling out the craft supplies. Springtime crafts can be tailored to suit any age. Consider:
- Flower arranging
- Making a spring flower wreath for your door
- Egg dying
Make a Meal
Even if we’re at home with just our immediate family or pod, we can still always enjoy an amazing springtime meal. It’s common this time of year to celebrate the season with a lamb dish. From simple lamb burgers to a complicated roasted lamb dish, cooking is always a great way to celebrate. If you’d rather lean toward a vegetarian menu, utilize spring ingredients like strawberries, kale, peas, or rhubarb.
