50 things to do in spring with kids

Dare I say it? Has spring actually arrived? Here are fifty things to do with kids in spring:

1. Explore the sculptures in Lynden Sculpture Gardens

2145 W. Brown Deer Rd., Milwaukee, WI 53217 (414) 446-8794 lyndensculpturegarden.org

Lynden Sculpture Garden offers visitors a unique experience of art in nature through its collection of more than 50 monumental sculptures across 40 acres of park, lake and woodland. Family Kits are available at the front desk, and they include a sculpture scavenger hunt, nature activities to complete on the grounds, magnifying glasses, and more. You can also check out a Plein Air kit for outdoor watercolor painting. Check their website for special Free Family Days that happen just a few times each year. Don't miss the whimsical and colorful cow sculpture (actually called Des Vaches: Mo, Ni, Que by Swiss artist Samuel Buri).

2. Smell the roses at Boerner Botanical Garden
