Now more than ever it seems to be an absolute blessing to be able to play outside. As the weather gets warmer we will be spending more and more time outdoors with our kids. Here are five of our favorite Instagram accounts to follow for great ways to make the most of your time in the fresh air as a family.
Tara is an absolute genius when it comes to nature based crafts and learning activities with her kiddos. She keeps things simple, but ensures that as much time as possible is spent outdoors and being creative. We love so many of her ideas, but can't wait to try her sticky letter nature search in the coming weeks with our kids.

Jessica has some magical ideas when it comes to incorporating nature into homeschool learning. We love the way she takes basic nature concepts and delves deep into hands on learning activities, not shying away from sharing technical details with her kids.
Andrea has four active boys and she has some awesome ways to keep them active and learning. We love the sidewalk chalk clock above, as well as her genius monster footprint challenge. Our kids love simple driveway activities like these!
If you're looking for gorgeous learning set ups all about nature then look no further! We love the vast number of resources provided, all of which are interactive and hands on.
Feeling inspired to get outside and combine nature and learning? Us too! Happy Spring friends.

Learning about symmetry is way more fun when you get to play with building bricks, especially our Pixel Bricks™! We are sharing a really fun and hands-on way to learn an early Math concept through an invitation to decorate butterfly wings.
Here are a few of our favorite April Fool's Day prank ideas we've done to our kids over the years. Most of which are last minute ideas (cause that's how we roll)!
Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
