5 Fun and Easy Spring Crafts for Kids

Tissue Paper Butterflies

Kids will love how easy it is to make colorful butterflies with tissue paper and pipe cleaner! All you have to do is show them how to twist the pipe cleaner to hold the “wings” together and your little ones can use their imaginations to combine several colors of tissue paper to make beautiful butterflies. These crafty butterflies can then be glued to a magnet and clothes pin to make refrigerator note holders. Best of all? You can usually find these supplies at your local dollar store. 

Mini Herb Garden

Because springtime is the time when plants and flowers start growing it’s also an ideal time to get crafty with your kids while teaching them about growing things. Mini terra-cotta flower pots are ideal for small hands to decorate with paint or markers. You can then teach your child to fill the pot with soil and plant a few herb seeds. This becomes a long-term project because your little one can watch the plant grow and even help you use the harvested herbs in a recipe later.

Spring Tree

If your kids like decorating the Christmas tree just imagine how much fun they’ll have decorating a tree in your yard for Spring. You can help them make paper chains with pastel colored construction paper and decorate leftover plastic eggs to hang on the tree. Before you’re done the whole neighborhood will want an Spring tree just like yours!

Kites

There’s nothing quite like flying a kite in springtime breezes. Instead of buying a kite from the store why not look up the instructions online and make a custom kite with your kids. After you’ve made your kite you can teach your children how to fly it! Don’t be surprised if they want to make more than one, after all it’s quite a thrill to make something and then be able to watch it soar through the sky.

Sidewalk Chalk Murals

Because springtime has quite a bit of rain it shouldn’t be a problem to use sidewalk chalk with your kids to create works of art in front of your home. Be sure to take pictures though, because your masterpieces will likely wash away overnight. You can then use those pictures to create a spring album or collage. 

Getting crafty with your kids doesn’t have to be a challenge. Simply tap into their imaginations and let them lead you toward new ideas. You may find that these 5 spring crafts for kids are just the beginning of what you and your children will come up with! Which of these 5 spring crafts for kids will you be making first?

  • There’s some really great ideas. DO kids fly kites anymore? I can’t say the last time I personally saw that. We used to do it all the time growing up, but I thought that activity kind of died out. If it did, it would be great to bring it back!!! 🙂

  • These are some great spring ideas for my grandchildren. We do use the sidewalk chart but we will have to try these other suggestions. Thank you for sharing

  • Another idea for kids and outdoors is a basket filled w/ different size balls. They are so creative and usually just want to be active. It’s something we have always had and the grandkids always head for.

  • I just saw chalk spray paint at Target and thought it was such a great idea for some outdoor chalk games. I didn’t buy it on that trip, but if I recall, it had four colors and cost a little below $20 for the four good-sized cans of spray chalk. Thanks for these ideas! I’m excited to try out something before spring is officially over!
