Spring is just around the corner! The snow is starting to melt, the days are longer, the sun is shining and the kids are even more wiggly!  The problem is that there is still lessons to be learned and tests to be taken.    Make it a little easier on the kids by giving them opportunities to move!  These Spring themed movement ideas are perfect for the wiggly kiddos!  Work on gross motor skills or give the kids a Spring themed brain break!
