5 things to make in spring with your little ones
Embrace spring and get creative with five simple craft and activity ideas to make the most of the season.
DIY Bird Feeders
Dust off those Christmas cookie cutters and fill with some seedy goodness! Alternatively grab a pinecone and smear it with peanut butter and seeds. Your kids will love watching the birds feasting on their efforts. See how many different birds they can identify.
Tip: make a mixture using gelatin and seeds to fill the cookie cutters.
An Egg Carton Garden
Egg carton gardening - the easiest way to grow stuff! Simply put some potting mix in an egg carton, plant seeds in the mix, water, watch and wait! You can later transplant your seedlings by cutting apart the egg cups and planting them directly (egg carton and all) into the garden.
OK, so a tad messy - but you know it will make their day! Lay out a tarpaulin or sheets of newspaper on the deck to contain the chaos, and let your little artists get to work. Make your own non-toxic finger paint with this easy recipe.
Gather up some buttons and wool and create a blossoming tree! You could also just cut out small circles of paper, or use scrunched up bits of tissue paper to the same effect.
These happy little pots will put a smile on anyone's face. Find the simple instructions HERE.
