Sunny and bright preschool crafts for spring! This is my “Spring Theme” page for preschool crafts.

What better way to welcome spring than with a craft! Spring does typically mean a few rainy days, and crafts on a rainy day are just about perfect. We have some fabulous preschool crafts for spring.
My little guys tend to be nice and stir crazy by the time spring arrives. I am sort of a hibernating type myself in winter, so by the time the spring has arrived it is time my cubs get to venture out once more. For that reason, we have quite a few nature craft ideas here.
I also have a few fabulous ideas for colourful crafts. Spring and colours definitely go hand in hand! OH! And a few adorable bird crafts too. And the flowers! Goodness, I just love these spring crafts. I hope you and yours love them too. Happy crafting!
