Don’t you just love this time of year? Here in Colorado, March tends to be more of a battle between winter and spring, as the first flowers bravely peek out from fresh waves of snow.
Nature crafts are a fun way to celebrate the new season while we wait for things outdoors to thaw. I’ve put together a roundup of some of the springtime activities the kids and I have done over the years, and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Swallowtail Caterpillar Playdough
Check out this post on how to make a Swallowtail Caterpillar out of playdough.
These pretty sun catchers are so easy to make with pressed flowers and contact paper.
How sweet are these fuzzy little caterpillars?! All you need is playdough and fresh flowers.
Just gather leaves and spring flowers from your yard to make these sweet moths (or butterflies).
Salt Dough and Seed Garden Art
This was a fun (although messy) project for livening up the wall in our garden. Check out my favorite salt dough recipe here.
This was a fun way to study nesting birds, while also adding a sweet display to our spring nature table.
Flower Tea and Mud Kitchen Play
Flower tea is so simple, yet hours of fun. Pick some flowers from the yard, fill some kitchen pans with water and you’re good to go!
We love kinetic sand, and this pond sensory tray setup did not disappoint – such a fun way to learn about frogs.
