Spring Craft Idea For Toddlers

Its February and although there is still frost on the ground outside (and even snow this week for us!) Spring is right around the corner I’ve been looking for lots of fun simple spring crafts for me and the kiddy’s to get up to this year and this week we made our first.

Now when it comes to craft in our house it needs to meet certain criteria’s:

  1. Keep it simple – with the three girls to look after it needs to be something I can help with but they can do the majority of it themselves.
  2. Must contain glitter (kids choice)
  3. Easy to clean up – once my little darlings have created there master pieces I’m left to clear it up so we try o leave the more messier things to playgroup/nursery (cruel mummy!)

So here’s what we got up too…

These cute little butterflies on sticks are such an easy spring craft to set up, I found these foam butterfly shapes in pound land for (you guessed it) £1 with 12 in a pack there are plenty to keep the kids busy for ages and enough for me to have a go too! You could also easily cut out your own butterfly shapes on foam, card or even felt.

spring craftAll I did was secure a lolly stick to the back with a little sellotape and then the kids were away creating different designs and patterns. Lots of glitter was used obvs the kids are obsessed with glitter, some goggly eyes, pipe cleaners, lots of glue and some foam shapes!

Im still deciding where to put these I think they’d look really cute in a little plant pot in the window!

  2. Ah these are lovely, we have a poundland (my mum marvels that everything is a £1 every time!!) I am going to get these next time I am in town!! Hope you are going to do more of these posts as I am totally rubbish at thinking of ideas so need inspiration!

    • I am as well its hard to find activities for toddlers to do independently isn’t it! x

  3. I love these! I think my toddler is a bit young to stick the eyes on but she could definitely do some decorating/colouring on the butterflies. Will head down to Poundland when I’m next in town :) thank you! x

    • my youngest loved to just stick as much glitter as possible to it! x

  4. Ah these are so cute, I love crafting in fact before my blog i used to make and decorate cup cakes and scrapbook too, but i don’t get time these day x

  5. These are really cute. I think even I could manage these with my limited task skills!

  6. These look great! Nice to see a bit of spring and I agree they would look fab on the windowsill :)
