21 Spring Crafts Kids will Love

We like to celebrate Spring and Easter by crafting together using the themes and colors of the season:

Fresh spring flowers—daffodils, tulips, dogwood, rhododendron, azaleas, peonies

The light greens of newly emerging spring leaves

Pinks all around us when the redbuds are in bloom

The happy yellow of daffodils, sunshine, and fuzzy chicks

Bird song everywhere!

Birds nesting

Easter eggs—dyeing and decorating eggs, crafting with eggs, finding eggs, playing games with eggs

Gardening—planting the spring peas, watching new seedlings emerge, learning about

Baby animals—lambs, chicks, ducklings, bunnies!

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 our family has enjoyed over the years. I hope you and your kids will have just as much fun with them!

    we are excited to try something new this year. at Walmart for $1.97 /12 pack of solid, matte-like finished eggs and claim that they can be dyed with any dye kit (and they are recyclable). I was thinking of possibly giving one egg for each child for the next 12 years to come to decorate as a keepsake and then when they are older will have a dozen to represent 12 of their years?!
