Today, the sun is shining, the temps are rising and if you look around, you can see that it is spring at last! It is so welcome to see the beginnings of life in the outdoors. It means that summer isn’t far off and that is my favourite time of year! The kids simply can’t wait to shed the layers of clothes, get outside to play and count how many colours they can see.

Here are some fun arts and crafts activities for the kids to help them get into the spirit of spring and some of the traditions or things we celebrate at this time of year

How about these adorable acorn owls from Curly Birds on Bloesom Kids  – Acorn Owls… Acorns are nice and smooth, but you could use other nuts still in their shells if you can’t find any acorns. Almonds are good for example 🙂

Just imagine that this could be real 🙂 My daughter would be ecstatic! Easter or Spring Butterfly Tree by Better Homes and Gardens

For me, there is nothing like a cheerful bunch of daisies to make everything feel better and feel like spring or summer have arrived. This Twig Flower Pot by Nina Makes is a lovely gift idea or just a fun way to add colour to your life…

I know that the wind at this time of year can be a little unwelcome at times, but kids can certainly make the most of it and have fun to boot. Here is a great tutorial from Maya Made for making your own kite…

Paper plate life cycle spinners by Let’s Explore are a fun way to get kids thinking and exploring the library and the great outdoors
