Get Crafty for SpringAmber Brandt
Spring is a great time to bring the outdoors in — fresh air, budding branches and fragrant flowers. It’s also a great time to create fun, brightly-colored crafts to celebrate the new season. Ready to switch gears in your home from winter to spring?
Check out this fun list of favorite Spring-themed crafts and activities you can do with your kids. We’ve included a variety of activities so there’s something for every age and ability level. We had such a great time putting together this list — we hope it puts a spring in your step too. Enjoy!
Origami Tulips — These adorable paper flowers look precise, but the helpful video tutorial will make it a snap. They’ve also included graduated steps to provide options for even the youngest crafter.
Felt Monarch Butterfly Wings Tutorial — Your little ones will be fluttering in style with these super cute dress-up wings. The instructions call for adhesive spray, so you don’t even have to sew!
Duck Pond Sensory Play — Water play is a great way to incorporate fun and learning using things you probably already have on hand. If you have at least floating toys and a small plastic bin — you’re already on your way!
Explore How Water Travels Through Leaves — Older kids are often fascinated with science and art collide. Use this simple experiment with food color to show them just how it works.
Make eco-friendly Seed Balls — Give old junk mail a second life feeding the birds with this eco-friendly craft! (This is a great way to celebrate Earth Day later this month too!)
