Spring is just around the corner! A time of joy, revival and rebirth. When you step out of the house during spring, everything feels so alive, especially after a long winter. There are a lot of ways you can get ready for spring! You can spend more time in the garden or just more time walking and being outside. Another fantastic way of getting into the spring spirit is by creating a few crafts, to bring the season into your heart and into your home! If you have kids at home, make sure you get them involved as well with some spring craft ideas! So take a look through our collection of 30 easy spring crafts for kids and get inspired!
1. Tiny Ladybugs – Recycled Egg Cartons

Create small ladybugs with your kids out of recycled egg cartons. You will have to cut up the cartons, then it’s time to paint them red, adding black dots onto them. Use fuzzy wires for the antennas of the ladybugs and use a black pompom as it’s head. Add some googly eyes to the head!

Then they will have to stick on the cupcake liners, pasting buttons in the middle of each flower, creating the pollen.
