The thing that I love about printables is that there is no one way that you have to use them. My daughter teaches me that every time we do a project together. This week we had fun making hummingbirds. Our hummingbird template got a lot of use and we made several using different media.
Bubble wrap is a ton of fun and it’s not just because of the popping. It is wonderful for arts and crafts. It has a great texture and makes a fun printmaking material. Next time you have bubble wrap, instead of popping it, try making one of these simple and pretty printed flowers.
The spring is here!! Hip hip hooray! One of our favorite warm weather activities is blowing bubbles. My little girl is crazy for bubbles. Bubbles are so beautiful and magical and just make you happy. These were enough reasons to make a bubble project for the spring. This pretty mixed media bubble project combines watercolors, wax paper and pastels.
I love painting with my little girl. We love exploring different techniques, canvases and tools to paint with. Forks are a great painting tool and we were just thrilled with how these fork painted spring meadows came out.
We live in New England. It is not uncommon to be playing in the snow one day and then to be outside in shorts the next. The weather can be crazy and unpredictable. As much as we sometimes like to complain about the ever-changing weather, I would not change it for a thing. There is something to love about each season. My favorite is watching the trees. I love the gorgeous colors that the fall brings and the haunting beauty of a bare tree getting ready for the winter. Right now, we are excited to see the buds on the trees preparing to sprout for the spring. We love each and every season. Because of this, four season crafts are a favorite of ours. Here is a fun four season craft with a twist (literally).
I love umbrellas. Luckily, the spring is near and soon the rain will be coming down and the umbrellas will be going up. This pretty spring umbrella craft is perfect for the spring. Your kids will love designing their own umbrellas. They are so much fun, you will want to make them again and again. Make a bunch and string them up to make a playful garland for spring. These would make a great project for the classroom.
Who else is ready for the spring? I know that we are. If you are looking for a touch of spring to brighten up your day, this fluttering butterfly craft might be just what you are looking for. Your kids will love designing and making their butterflies and them watching them flutter and fly.
Being a New Englander, I enjoy watching the seasons change. I eagerly anticipate the trees filling up with leaves in the spring and summer. Watching the snow falling on the bare branches in the winter is simply magical. And the fall….oh the fall. It is my favorite season of all. I love seeing the vibrant reds, yellows and oranges dancing around in the trees. It is such a beautiful sight. Fall is not quite here yet, but we wanted to start our first fall craft. Once we saw how pretty our project came out though, what started as one foil embossed fall tree, turned into a tree craft for each season.
Insect crafts are always a hit for the spring and summer. This transforming insect craft is so cute and simple to make.
This is an easy craft that is fun to make and even funner to play with. Transform a ladybug or a bumble bee into a colorful butterfly with just a twist of the wrist. Here’s how…
