It’s not fun to admit that the cold weather has taken a toll on our spirits, but with such cold temperatures the past week, it’s hard to think about anything else. If your children have been cooped up inside for far too long, it’s time to think spring with some fun spring crafts for kids! What makes us think of spring? Rainbows, flowers, sunny skies, etc. And how do you make those when it’s too cold to go outside? With paint! This week’s roundup of kids’ craft projects features items that make us think of spring thanks to a palette of fun paint colors.
Rainbow Handprint Wreath
Have your children help you welcome the sunny skies inside by making a colorful, rainbow-themed handprint wreath. The Nurture Store shows you how to not only make this fun project by a collection of other rainbow sensory projects, too.
Wine Cork Shamrock Craft for St. Patrick’s Day
Lots of us have piles of wine corks around without a specific purpose as to how to use them. Take a cue from Crafty Morning and put those corks to craft use! Group three corks together to make a cheerful shamrock just in time for St. Patrick’s Day greeting card needs.
Painting With Trucks
Vroom, vroom! Your children will be looking for their favorite vehicles thanks to this fun painting idea from Learn Play Imagine!
Bubble Wrap Stomp Painting
I couldn’t think of a better project for shaking off the winter blues – paint stomping! Mess for Less has the great idea of combining bubble wrap and painting for a loud, potentially messy DIY project that is sure to please your young crafters.
