Learn ‘Why February 2nd?

Let your kids know that February 2nd is the exact halfway point between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox – basically, we’re halfway through the winter season.

Learn about Shadows

Take your kids outside and ask them if they see their shadow.

Talk to kids about what creates a shadow (light and any object blocking the light).  Have them stand in a sunny spot and shady spot so they can see the difference.  And if there’s not sunlight, use a flashlight indoors to help them create shadows on the wall.

Make Your Own Weather Prediction

Many forecasters can tell you all about the science behind predicting the weather.  Tracking historical data and weather patterns in order to learn more about when spring might first arrive.

Why not try your hand at making a prediction?  You might be better than the experts at predicting the coming of spring!

When do you think the warmer weather will begin?
