Celebrate the start of spring with these spring crafts kids will love, including flower crafts, spring recipes, and Easter crafts.

Updated February 2023

Here at the Artful Parent, we like to celebrate Spring by crafting together using the colors of the season:

The light greens of newly emerging leaves

Pinks all around us when the peonies are in bloom

The happy yellow of daffodils, sunshine, and fuzzy chicks

The bright blue of the spring sky!

There is so much to love about spring! And so many lovely themes and colors to incorporate into crafting.

Here’s a list of 21 spring crafts we have enjoyed over the years. We hope you and your kids will have just as much fun with them!
