5 Fun Spring Craft Ideas for Kids

By now, the sun should gradually be peeking through your blinds earlier and earlier. Birds should be waking you with their morning song. Depending on the climate, maybe you’ll even have the buzz of lawnmowers adding to that tune. These are all emerging signs of a new spring season, and they are also signs that your kids will become increasingly restless to exert their cooped up energy from the winter. In order to help you convert that energy into positive action, we’ve compiled a list of five exciting crafts, recipes, and activities for your kids’ enjoyment.

Birdfeeders

The warm weather attracts all types of living things to come out of their nooks and burrows; you’ll typically notice that in the number and variety of birds fluttering around regardless of where you live. Encourage your children to watch these beautiful creatures in close proximity by making do-it-yourself birdfeeders. The list of materials needed for the project is short, and making them is safe and easy enough that the children will hardly need any parental supervision. They’ll love it as if they were feeding the birds by hand! (Source)



Pretzel Nests

For once, you can tell your children that it’s perfectly fine to play with their food. With pretzels, peanut butter, honey and powdered sugar combined, you’re looking at a relatively healthy snack for your kids. But the real benefit is in the joy you’ll see on their faces as they each create their own nesting masterpiece. Grab a variety of Easter candy – like colorful peeps and chocolate eggs - at the grocery store, so the kids can customize the nests to their own liking. (Source)

Bubble Refill Station

In most cases, you will find most of the ingredients required for this project all in the convenience of your own kitchen. We have to say that even adults appreciate the majesty of bubbles; imagine how these effervescent spheres look to your children! By filling a large container with a homemade bubble mix, you have easily whipped up a fast and easy outdoor activity to entertain them for hours. (Source)

Pastel Deviled Eggs

This project is a wonderful play on dyed eggs for Easter. But the reason why we love this better is because it’s a delightfully presented snack that’s already ready-to-eat! The instructions are almost exactly similar to dying shelled eggs; simply dye the yolk-removed egg whites instead. It will be sure to provide a fun and visually appealing experience from the making to the devouring! (Source)

Egg Carton Nature Hunt

With this activity, you can give that empty egg carton from the previous project a purpose of its own. Just cut the carton in half, and let your children explore and gather some environmental tokens from their outdoor adventure. We love this activity, because it focuses attention away from technological devices to learn and experience what nature has to offer. (Source)
