Easy Spring Crafts for Kids to make

Updated on January 5, 2015

Summer garden tic tac toe


1) Garden Games

Keeping kids occupied over the summer is vital to ensure that boredom is kept out of the picture. Also to stop them from fighting with siblings or friends. Help them to make simple games for the garden with items such as pebbles. There is no need to spend precious cash as many things can be found objects, you just need a little imagination and a bit of elbow grease.

Funky glasses


2) Dress up Fun

Why not put on some plays with them ? In order to do this you will need to make little costumes together . This could be as simple as making a pair of glasses from cardboard like the one in the picture. The best part is , you will have lovely colorful pictures if you get snappy with your camera. You could even make a scrapbook of the play and that's a whole other days work from the one activity!

Flower Power


3) Upcycle Things!

See what fun things you can make from things like coffee filters such as the flowers in the picture. This is especially useful if you are taking the little ones for a visit to the grandparents. Imagine their faces when they see what their little grandchild has made for them ! Best of all these flowers don't need to be watered and they will last forever (just hopefully they won't be whipped out at their 18th birthday ! )

Hand Print Plant

4) Hand Print Plant

Get them to make sweet pictures by creating objects such as plants or trees from their handprints. You can use lots of different colors to make it bright and fun.

      These are very cute and I had to laugh at your suggestion that the flowers might be brought out to admire on a grandchild's 18th birthday. And why not? It just shows how grandpa and grandma have doted on him/her all those years. ;)

      A little ribbing helps children toughen up so they can face the world without mom and/or dad holding their hand. Believe me, they will have to deal with far worse than a few handmade flowers from when they were children.

      Really enjoyed seeing your ideas in this article. I think young children would really enjoy them.
