4 Fun Springtime Crafts for Children
Even if you may not be able to spend time outdoors during coronavirus quarantine, there are still many fun springtime crafts you and your child can make together. Try these four crafts to help teach your child all about spring.
Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeder
You can help your child welcome birds back to your neighborhood with this homemade bird feeder. All you'll need are toilet paper or paper towel rolls, a few sturdy sticks, string, and a hole punch. If you don't have bird seed, you can use unsalted and unbuttered popcorn, sunflower seeds, or dried fruit.
If you have some yarn, cardboard, and colored markers, you can create your own yarn-wrapped flower bouquet. You can let your child draw the flower shape they like best, and cut it out for them.
Cupcake Liner Chicks
This craft is fun and highly customizable. If you don't have the materials for the eyes or wings, you can draw them or cut them out using colored paper.
Tissue Paper Rainbows
This rainbow craft will not only help your child learn about the colors of the rainbow, but it'll help develop their fine motor skills as well. You can use colored construction paper if you don't have tissue paper.
Your child's imagination and excitement about the animals, trees, flowers, and plants of spring will make a day of crafting a fun experience for the whole family. These four craft ideas are not only engaging, but they can be customized to suit what you happen to already have at home.
