Flower Spring Craft For Kids
Yay! Spring has finally sprung!
It’s one of my most favourite times of the year, the weather gets a little warmer and you can just feel the hint of summer in the air. The days start to get a little longer, the skies are bluer and well, everyone just seems to get their bounce back into their step!
And speaking of bouncing, my little Indi has been bouncing from here to there during our morning walks spotting all kinds of beautiful spring flowers.
Taking the lead from her fascination with flowers (and butterflies, absolutely obsessed with butterflies ATM – maybe a craft for that later) I finally found a use for those little leaves we painted last month (see post HERE). Enter the next craft activity – this ADORABLE spring craft flower bouquet.
All you need are a few fallen leaves, an old branch, an empty egg carton and wholla – cutest craft EVER!
Now for the step by step HOW TO…

Indi loved this spring craft activity and she thinks it’s pretty spesh to have her own hand made bunch of flowers in her bedroom. They certainly add a nice little pop of colour and help to personalise her space, although judging by her interest in taking photos of her baby (notice how she is actually checking out her ‘shots’ – sooo cute!) maybe a camera craft is next on the to do list.
Till next time, thanks for stopping by!
