5 Fun Spring Crafts For Kids

Spring isn’t very far away, and that means that it’s time to break out the crafts! While you’re waiting so patiently for spring to arrive, help get your kids excited for this time of new beginnings with some kid-friendly spring crafts.

Our friends at Lolo’s Little Darlins Daycare, a Rigby preschool and daycare, helped us put together this list of fun spring crafts to do with your children.

1. Dandelion Thumbprints
Grab a piece of paper and an ink pad (or paint) and you’re good to go with this fun and easy craft. This is great for kids who like hands on activities and don’t mind getting their fingers a little messy. All you need to do is draw the stem of the dandelion and then show your little ones how to stamp their thumbprints for the fluffy seeds.

2. Hand Flower Bookmark
Get your kids excited about flowers and reading with this fun bookmark craft! Pick up some craft foam, glue, and popsicle sticks to make this flower bookmark.

You can find the tutorial at Live Craft Love.

3. Shaving Cream Easter Eggs
Here’s another one for those kiddos who like to get a little messy. Line a baking sheet with foil. Load that with shaving cream. Then drop on paints in your child’s favorite colors. Swirl it around for a nice marbled effect, then let your child lay their paper egg over it. Hang it up to dry, and wa-la!

4. Cardboard Butterfly
This is a great recycling project! Hang onto those empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls for crafts such as this one. Use pipe cleaners, paper, foams, glitter, googly eyes, and whatever you can get your hands on to decorate these cute little creatures.

5. Homemade Bird Feeder
Nothing says “Spring” like cute little animals hanging around outside your home. Attract cute little birds with this DIY bird feeder. Have your kids help you collect pine cones. Then smother them with peanut butter and bird seed.
