I keep saying spring is on it’s way. Eventually I am going to be right. It is hard not to take it personally when I say, “Spring is right around the corner” and Mother nature sends me a snow storm and -30 overnight. But I am holding strong – spring is on it’s way (though I am saying it more in a hushed whisper then shouting it from the rooftops this time). Since it does not at all look like spring outside yet, I am trying my darnedest to make it look like spring inside. This means … preschool spring crafts!
We started this past week creating some fun and cheery preschool spring crafts. If you have read this blog before, you probably know we like to keep things simple (like our post on 75 simple paper plate crafts). I like crafts to be fun and simple enough my preschooler can do almost completely on his own. I have found 8 awesome preschool spring crafts that I am very excited to share with you!
8 Easy and Unique Preschool Spring Crafts
Rainy day umbrella by Brooks Childcare. This spring craft is awesome for preschoolers because so much learning is possible! The fine motor skills for cutting, taping or gluing as well as the possibility of adding numbers or letters to the umbrella or rain. The possibilities are limitless.
Fork Tulip Painting By Blog Me Mom. The process for this preschool spring craft is fantastic! My Sam will absolutely love this one! We have never done any ‘utensil’ painting, I am sure it will be a hit.
Lunch Bag Kite By Mommy Lessons 101. Kites are something that always remind me of spring. How fun would it be to make a kite (super simply) with your preschooler for spring?!
Beaded Caterpillars By Make and Takes. These are SO simple and equally adorable. These cute beaded caterpillars are great for fine motor skill practice, patterning, counting, or for a unit on butterflies! I bet you could very simply turn these little caterpillars into butterflies with a few twists and turns – imagine the preschool spring crafts you could create with this idea!
Sun catcher Rainbows By Go Ask Mom. Rainbows are another tell tale sign of spring. I am very excited to make this cute preschool spring craft! They will certainly brighten up our family room!
Rainbow Lacing By Coffee Cups and Crayons. I love this busy bag idea from Coffee Cups and Crayons. What a great quiet activity for preschoolers – full of fine motor and colour practice.
Rainbow Name Puzzle By Hands on as We Grow. We love name puzzles over here. This is such a unique and colourful way to practice spelling a name! Even though it is not necessarily a craft, it was too perfect of a spring preschool activity to leave out of this list.
Blossoming Cherry Tree This was a spring craft we did just last week. It is surprisingly simple and once the twigs were attached together my preschooler could do it all on his own. A fantastic sensory process and looks so very pretty when done!
Even though it certainly does not look like spring outside, it is starting to look very spring-y inside! Which is wonderful – because we could certainly use some cheery spring colours this late in winter.
I love that these activities not only look sunny, but little ones can create them fairly independently and be sunny and cheerful about their accomplishments!
