Spring into crafts? More like blizzard-warning-unplowed-roads-freezing-cold-tons-of-snow craft. At least it was the day I hosted this “spring” craft about a week ago. But that didn’t stop my moms club from having a fun spring craft!
My spring craft was based off of two ideas I had seen on Little Family Fun. This blog is packed full of craft ideas that are cute, simple and easy to follow.
First we made “The 12 Days of Easter” craft.
I cut 1-inch strips of white paper and the kids colored them as they wished. Then each piece was folded into a loop and taped or stapled until we had a chain of 12 attached to one another. The end result is to hang it up in your house, and take off one loop each day until Easter!
After awhile, sitting at the table and coloring just wasn’t cutting it, so I gathered everyone that was interested and we played “Hop Like a Bunny”.
I placed 10 plastic eggs that were labeled 1-10 in an Easter basket. Each child took turns picking an egg and reading the number. Then they hopped like a bunny as many times as whatever number they picked and everyone counted along with them.
I had spotted these Pepperidge Farm butterfly shaped pretzel thins and crackers months ago and just knew they would be perfect for my spring craft. I used a flower shaped cookie cutter on some cheese slices to add to the cracker plate.
Luckily, it’s finally feeling like spring around here!
