Spring is here! The weather is warming up and everything’s turning green. I like this season because it means more outdoor time, longer days, birds, bugs, flowers and, also, spring showers. Spring is a great time to explore nature with your children and collect branches, flowers and more.

Children see the weather around them every day and now, in spring, when it’s so variable, it can be a great talking point. Make a weather wheel is a fun way to learn more about the weather and promote the observation and investigation. Get the free printables for this adorable weather wheel here.


What about a walk in the woods to find the material for future crafts? You can make simple paint brushes from nature and see what painty patterns you can create. Via


Celebrate Spring is here with some paper flower crowns (they won’t ever die). This craft project is perfect for older kids and grown-ups. See the full tutorial at The house that lars built.


Decorate some cupcakes with these printable floral cupcake toppers. It can be a Mother’s Day gift or a simple, yet, fun project to make with kids. Get the template here.


From trash to treasure! Use empty cheese boxes and create a weather diorama (or any themed diorama you and your kids like). Via
