Spring Crafts

Spring has sprung, flowers are blooming, butterflies are flying about - and crafty ideas are floating through the air! Kidzworld has come up with some fun projects for the season that you can do on your own, with your 'rents or with your BFF.

Spring Crafts - Flower Arrangements

April showers bring May flowers, so it's the perfect time to pick fresh flowers and make them into necklaces and bracelets. Daisies and daffodils will work well for this project. Once you cut off the stems, ask your mom to help you with the needle and thread as you sew the flowers into jewelry - they'll not only look pretty, but make you smell great too!

Spring Crafts - Florals Forever

If you want to keep your flowers around for awhile, then why not press and dry them? Thinner flowers like pansies, buttercups and cherry blossoms are best cuz they press better, dry faster and keep more of their color. Find the biggest, heaviest book in your house, like a phone book or dictionary, open it to the middle, sandwich the flowers between paper towels and put them inside the book. Then stack more books on top of it. It'll take up to three weeks to fully dry, but once they're dry, you can frame them or glue them onto cards and stationery.

Spring Crafts - Hi Hi Birdie

Invite some feathery friends to your backyard with a pine cone bird feeder!

What You Need:

  • Several large pine cones.
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter.
  • 2 1/2 cups of uncooked oats.
  • Birdseed.
  • A few feet of string.

What to Do:

  • Mix the peanut butter and oats until it's blended really well. You can add sunflower seeds, chopped nuts and dried fruit to make it even tastier.
  • Tie string onto the pine cones so that you can hang them from a tree branch.
  • Cover the pine cones with the PB & O mixture and then roll them around in the birdseed.

Spring Crafts - Backyard Mural

Transforming an old, white sheet into a majestic mural is easy as 1,2,3! Hang the sheet on a clothesline or drape it over a fence and get to work with your paintbrushes, sponges and felt markers. Be as creative as you can by drawing, designing and splattering your canvas. It'd be cool to have a theme though, like a spring theme filled with flowers, insects and raindrops.
