Since we have to wait for April showers to bring May flowers – why not get started with Spring Crafts to keep little fingers occupied. Take inspiration from all the creatures and flowers that Spring has to offer such as bees made from plastic eggs or colorful tulips created with paint and plastic forks. Many of these crafts take advantage of recycling items such as the soda pop flowers created by painting the bottom of a plastic bottle. These crafts will have you buzzing in no time.
