Spring Craft Ideas for Preschoolers

Posted on 05-01-2017

There are so many awesome crafts that you can do with your preschooler to teach them the joys of spring. Check out these two crafts and an awesome video to watch together.

Help your preschooler make edible bird nests.

The best crafts are edible crafts! Make these edible bird nests after you watch this video of a baby bird hatching from its egg. All you need are a few simple ingredients to create these fun and delicious treats: Chow Mein noodles, mini marshmallows, butter, vanilla extract and egg shaped candy. Check out the recipe for the exact measurements and a picture of the final product!

Show your preschooler the lifecycle of a butterfly.

It might be difficult to explain to a preschooler that caterpillars turn into butterflies, but this time-lapse video will show the process in less than three minutes! This mesmerizing clip will have adults enthralled too! The caterpillar turns itself into a cocoon and in no time a beautiful Monarch butterfly emerges from the green cocoon!

Watch grass grow up close with your preschooler.

We all see green grass everywhere we go, but it’s time to take a closer look. Let your preschooler grow grass in a small, clear cup, and they can watch it grow from seeds into blades of grass! The small cup gives a contained environment for your little one to practice his gardening skills. All you need is potting soil; any type of container like a milk carton, disposable cup, or yogurt container; and some grass seed. Check out this site with all the details and help your preschoolers start to develop their green thumb.

Spring is a time of new life and new beginnings, so use this season to start some new habits with your preschooler. They will grow up before you know it, so cherish and seize the time that you have with them.
