I love the change in seasons. Mostly because it gives me the opportunity to do some fun craft projects with my kids. Certainly, I take their level of ability into account, however we have done some cool things! Take a look at some fun ideas to try with your kids.
Spring Crafts for Kids
This first one would be easy for older kids to try. It may be a bit much for the younger set, but with a little help they will surely be amazed at their wiggly caterpillar! My 10-year-old daughter was easily able to make one after seeing this video!
Fairy houses are super popular right now. Thanks to the Country Chic Cottage, this next project would be a fun way to feature the summer fireflies (so long as there is an air hole or two in the lid). Can you imagine how your child’s face would light up with nature’s twinkling jewels? All you need for the Mason Jar Fairy House is a jar, moss, a fairy door (or make your own from FEMO clay), and glue!
Incorporating STEM into our crafts is also a priority of mine. How about putting a rainbow into a jar? This next project from Playdough to Plato is appropriate for kids over age 2, they would just need a little help from mom or dad. The best thing is, you likely have all of the ingredients in your pantry – Honey, light corn syrup, dish soap, olive oil, rubbing alcohol, water, and food coloring. I suppose an eye dropper or funnels might also be helpful in getting the items into the jar!
A Craft for Your Teen
Finally, your teen will love this fun and funky unicorn stress ball. The video says not to use E6000, after some research you may want to consider Gorilla Glue however trying one out first might be best! This unicorn stress ball how to video perfectly explains how to make the craft.
So what will your kids make this spring? Do you have a craft idea you would like to share? Please post them on the Stridepost Facebook page, or Twitter. We may share them on our Instagram page or Pinterest!
