Happy Monday everyone! We hope everyone had a great weekend enjoying the sunny spring weather here in Connecticut. Now that we are officially into spring, we are coming up with some great spring activities to do at home with the entire family. Watch the latest edition of Science Sunday to learn how to make seed balls and a bird feeder from supplies you probably already have in your home.
