5 Fun Spring Crafts For Kids

Spring isn’t very far away, and that means that it’s time to break out the crafts! While you’re waiting so patiently for spring to arrive, help get your kids excited for this time of new beginnings with some kid-friendly spring crafts.

Our friends at Lolo’s Little Darlins Daycare, a Rigby preschool and daycare, helped us put together this list of fun spring crafts to do with your children.

1. Dandelion Thumbprints
Grab a piece of paper and an ink pad (or paint) and you’re good to go with this fun and easy craft. This is great for kids who like hands on activities and don’t mind getting their fingers a little messy. All you need to do is draw the stem of the dandelion and then show your little ones how to stamp their thumbprints for the fluffy seeds.

Find the full tutorial at Glued to My Crafts. They even have a free printable!

2. Hand Flower Bookmark
Get your kids excited about flowers and reading with this fun bookmark craft! Pick up some craft foam, glue, and popsicle sticks to make this flower bookmark.

You can find the tutorial at Live Craft Love.

3. Shaving Cream Easter Eggs
Here’s another one for those kiddos who like to get a little messy. Line a baking sheet with foil. Load that with shaving cream. Then drop on paints in your child’s favorite colors. Swirl it around for a nice marbled effect, then let your child lay their paper egg over it. Hang it up to dry, and wa-la!

4. Cardboard Butterfly
This is a great recycling project! Hang onto those empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls for crafts such as this one. Use pipe cleaners, paper, foams, glitter, googly eyes, and whatever you can get your hands on to decorate these cute little creatures.

5. Homemade Bird Feeder
Nothing says “Spring” like cute little animals hanging around outside your home. Attract cute little birds with this DIY bird feeder. Have your kids help you collect pine cones. Then smother them with peanut butter and bird seed.

Why You Should Take a Trip To Idaho Falls this Winter

Have you ever been to the humble little town of Idaho Falls in Southeastern Idaho? Maybe you’ve never even heard of it, and that’s why we want to share some fun reasons you should take a winter trip here. There are so many fun Idaho Falls activities you won’t even know where to start!

The first reason you should go here is the food. Yes, when you drive through, many of the restaurants will be familiar fast food entities, but if you look a little deeper, you’ll find some real gems.

Idaho Falls is home to Snake Bite, a fantastic burger restaurant that you won’t find anywhere else in the world; Chef Shane’s Perspective, a local chef who wants to share his delicious creations with the community; and Fuji Grill, home to fantastic sushi and a really fun hibachi grill experience.

You won’t be disappointed.

With museums, a zoo, and their own auditorium where concerts have been held for artists like Lindsey Stirling and David Archuleta, you will have plenty of things to do.

The ARTitorium is sure to be a fun time with those of you who have children; they offer interactive art displays and fun for people of all ages. This is just one of the many fun and educational museums in the area.

The local zoo is always offering different deals and fun educational programs throughout the year. Who wouldn’t want to see a bunch of cute animals?

And you have to take a walk around the Green Belt (or drive at this time of year) and see the beautiful Idaho Falls and Idaho Falls Temple.

Nearby Fun
Idaho Falls is just a morning drive away from some beautiful places like Yellowstone National Park and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Get yourself all set up at a hotel and take a day trip to Yellowstone to see the geysers - in the winter time you might even get to ride on snowmobiles through the park.

Or plan a day to go visit beautiful Jackson Hole. Ride the ski lift to the top of Rendezvous Peak and try some of the world’s best waffles.
