Spring Crafts and Activities for Preschoolers
I thought it time to share these amazing spring activities for preschoolers:
A Blossoming Spring Craft for Kids – This was a great sensory and art activity for my preschoolers—a beautiful blossoming spring tree to kick off the season.
Colorful Spring Art Project – Cheerful spring tree art to make with the kids! We loved exploring color mixing and different art techniques with this.
Egg Carton Flowers from I Heart Arts n Crafts – Use paint to transform old egg cartons into beautiful spring flowers. This lends itself to a discussion about reusing and recycling.
Raindrop Suncatchers Fine Motor Art from Pre-K Pages – Such a fun art technique for the kids to use. They could make rainbows or flowers (or anything their heart’s desire) to go along with the raindrops.
Nest and Baby Bird Craft from Buggy and Buddy – This craft would be fun for the kids after a bird-watching walk around the neighborhood.
Rainbow Mobile Craft from B-Inspired Mama – What a colorful mobile to hang up around the house! This would be fun to do on rainy days.
Paper Plate Birds from Happy Hooligans – I love how these birds “rock” once they’re made! I’m sure they would be beautiful hanging up in windows too.
Fluttering Butterfly Craft from Pink Stripey Socks – Gorgeous butterflies children can create and teach to “fly.” So many different ways the kids can create them.
Yarn-Wrapped Tulips from School Time Snippets – Grab your yarn stash, if you have one, and let the kids make their own flower gardens. They’d make great decorations for spring or even gifts for Mother’s Day.
Colorful Science and Art for Spring from Fun-A-Day – Such a simple activity with beautiful results. Kids can explore science and art while making colorful coffee filter flowers.
Ladybug Suncatchers from Here Come the Girls – Ladybug lovers will be keen to make these suncatchers!
Invitation to Create a Flower Garden from Cutting Tiny Bites – This open-ended flower craft will likely yield a wonderful flower garden to put up on the wall.
Bubble Wrap Beehive Craft from From ABCs to ACTs – I love how the bubble wrap is used to create a fun texture for the beehive!
Yarn-Wrapped Spring Tree Craft from I Heart Crafty Things – Kids can use different colored yarn and tissue paper to make their spring trees.
Monarch Butterfly for Kids from Kid World Citizen – These monarchs let kids explore symmetry alongside a fun art technique.
Sticky Flower Garden Sensory Art from Fantastic Fun and Learning – What a delightful idea! Use petals from old flowers to make sticky art, among other things.
Tissue Paper Kite Craft from The Measured Mom – Kids design their own kites out of tissue paper. Perfect when it’s not kite-flying weather.
Butterfly Suncatchers from Twodaloo (link no longer available) – A few simple items from around the house and the yard is all that’s needed for these lovely butterflies.
Binoculars Craft for Cloud Observation from Buggy and Buddy – Make these fun binoculars with the kids, then get outside and search for some clouds in the sky.
Homemade Nature Suncatcher Wind Chimes from Hands On As We Grow – These would look great on the back porch, and kids will love gathering nature items for the wind chimes.
All the pretty colors! All the lovely flowers! All the lack of snow!!
