Springtime is a great time of year to get outside and enjoy nature and all the new life that is growing up from the earth. You can make some fun springtime crafts to go along with this time of year. How about making a kite to fly on a windy day or making some Easter eggs to decorate your house? Here are a few ideas for some fun springtime crafts.
String Easter Eggs
A fun springtime craft for kids is to have them make string Easter eggs. Buy some balloons and blow them up, then cut out about 30 pieces of string to be 6 inches (or the width of the balloon). Dip the pieces of string in Elmer’s glue and wrap them around the balloon individually. You should have a balloon covered in string from all different directions. You will then place the balloon on some non stick paper and allow it to dry for several hours. After the glue is dried, pop the balloon and you have yourself a colorful Easter egg. Leaving a small hole on one side is a good idea so you can put candy inside the balloon or let your kids cut out a rabbit or duck to put inside.
