Flower Ornament 

Here’s an easy craft to try together. While you’re out, encourage the kids to pick some early spring flowers that appeal to them (yes, even the prettier weeds count!) Let their collection dry between books for about two weeks.

Then on a rainy spring day or one of those days you just need to keep everyone busy, cut out two circles of clear contact paper, put the flowers or greenery between the sheets, then glue the circle between a couple of simple (& cheap) craft store rings. Voila, a pretty spring keepsake!
