Easy Spring Crafts for Kids to make
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.
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!
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.
