Recently, I’ve been embracing crafting with my kids a little more than in the past. As I’ve said before, I’m not a natural crafter. But being stuck at home during lockdown and doing some home learning with the twiglets has encouraged me to crack out the crafts more often. I still look for simple ideas that are within my limited capabilities though! So in case anyone else is the same, I thought I’d make a list of easy spring craft ideas for you to try with your little ones!

easy spring craft ideas

1. Spring Meadow Painting

I just love this spring meadow painting from Arty Crafty Kids – I think it looks amazing! And it’s all done without using a paintbrush! So creative and exciting for kids 🙂

2. Rainbow Finger Paint Trees

Make these super easy but effective rainbow blossom trees using finger painting. You could make them super colourful like we did or use different shades of pink!

3. Paper Straw Tulips

4. Stained Glass Butterfly

Make this stained glass butterfly from Typically Simple. It would look lovely with the light coming through a window.

Alternatively, these stained glass effect decorations from Baker Ross are great – you just colour them in with feltips and they look fab!

    Oh what a fab list – thanks! I am not a crafty mum either, but since the start of lockdown I have now created a ‘craft box’ with all the basic bits and bobs. My daughter loves it but I hate the mess, ha! #MischiefAndMemories
