Kids Short Spring Poems Connection
The following 5 kids short poems celebrate the much long awaited season which brings warm sunshine, nature’s awakening beauty, and opportunities for lots of outdoor fun.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Spring by taking the kids on a spur-of-the-moment, fun springtime picnic. It can become a long lasting memory for your children…and you, too!
Fun Outdoor Picnic Games
Gather up the kids, pack a spring picnic lunch of finger foods (remember the wipes), then head out to your favorite park. Bring a soccer ball and other fun outdoor games. You might find some picnic game ideas from these helpful parent sites…
A little pre-planning will help you picnic turn out awesome! Have the game supplies stashed in a bag or box, ready to go…
- Nature Scavenger Hunt (Printable) – or create your own
- Bean Bag Toss (DIY) – for a park picnic, bring paper plates and a marker along with bean bags
- Soccer – use the paper plates to mark one or two goals
- 30 Classic Games for Simple Outdoor Play – I like Simon Says, fun for all ages

Spring Has Sprung
Spring has sprung, the grass has ris’,
I wonder where the birdie is?
There he is up in the sky,
He dropped some whitewash in my eye!
I‘m alright, I won’t cry,
I’m just glad that cows can’t fly!

For the above poem, I remember saying this poem as we jumped rope:
Spring is sprung!
The grass has ris,
I wonder where the posies is…
Come look here my dear sis
I have found little crocuses
Spring Has Sprung!
Spring has sprung!
It’s time to have some fun.
Come and play with me.
Bring your umbrella and
The rain will fall,
the sun will shine,
the seeds will grow.
We’ll play in the puddles,
sit in the shade,
watch the flowers bloom.
When we’re done,
we’ll take a ride
along the countryside.
Whatever we do,
I’ll have fun with you.

Green grass growing
Flowers fragrantly flowing
Bouncing backyard balls
Swings sky sailing
Drops dripping down
Warm winds winding
Kids’ kites colliding
Children chasing children
Playgrounds, parks populated
Sunny spring shining

Spring has Sprung!
Spring has newly sprung
the hills are full of grass
and along comes a billy-goat
sliding on his overcoat
down the summer pass
~ by Ogden Nash ~
Oh joy, the days of springtime when the earth begins to bloom
and gelid days of wintertime have shed their frigid gloom.
When minute buds and shoots stretch forth from their long winter sleep
and delicate, gossamer shapes buoyed by azure creep.
Grand palette splashes overnight spread hues of pink and blue,
as melodies of earth and sky in unison renew.
Awakening soil expels a host of movements,
textures, smells; as if in pregnancy’s full bloom she
grows, transforms and swells.
Soft, gentle rain joins sunshine’s rays to nourish, soothe, caress.
Totality of elements united to impress!
A dormant landscape, hibernation, shield from winter’s wrath.
Immersed within a natural rhythm…a predestined path.
A cornucopia of pride displayed majestically.
Glad welcomed feast to be consumed, to hear, breathe, touch and see.
This present Mother Nature shares, delivered to our door.
Her precious gift of new found life, peace, joy and hope
