I am so excited to welcome spring and the warmer weather! I can already smell the flowers blooming and hear the calming sounds of spring! As the weather warms up, I love giving my kiddos plenty of crafts to do. To make things exciting, I put together a Colorful Spring Crafts Bundle so you can have some fun with your little ones this season too! There are six fun crafts I’m excited to share with you below.
Spring Frog Craft
The first craft in this exciting bundle is the Frog Craft. This cute little guy is the perfect addition to your life cycle unit or pond study. Many schools touch on the life cycle of tadpoles, fish, and other spring animals. Use this easy prep craft to decorate your hallway after a fun animal unit.
This craft is great for fine motor skills during independent work time or in small groups. We discuss the stages of a frog’s life as we cut and paste. My kids love adding his silly little tongue. You could even roll it with a pencil for an added touch!
Spring Caterpillar Craft
Kids love finding little bugs and caterpillars while they are outside. This Caterpillar Craft is a fun activity to do if you learn about the life cycle of a caterpillar. I love reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to introduce the idea of life cycles. My kids enjoy learning that some animals evolve and change throughout their lives.
You can print this friendly caterpillar on colorful cardstock or plain paper and let your students add their own colors. They’ll make quite a bright display for your bulletin board!
Spring Butterfly Craft
Everyone knows that caterpillars turn into butterflies (or moths). This Butterfly Craft is an adorable way to finish up your life cycle studies. We like reading Charlie the Caterpillar by Christopher Santoro. We talk about all the changes Charlie goes through in the story.
Like most of my crafts, you can print the butterfly template onto colored paper or the coloring page template. If you’re learning about a certain type of butterfly, you can print the template to match that insect. Depending on the day and the activity, I like to let my kids do some coloring to add some unique touches.
Spring Ladybug Craft
It’s said that if you find a ladybug in your house, it brings good luck! Maybe this Ladybug Craft can bring you some luck this spring. I really enjoy using the ladybug to review insects. We learn that insects have 6 legs, 2 antennae and a set of wings. This is the perfect craft to showcase these attributes during a science lesson. The rounded edges make this craft very easy for little fingers to cut out, too!
A great read-aloud for this craft is The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. Although this ladybug doesn’t look very grouchy, it matches the ladybug by the end of the story. 😉
Spring Blue Bird Craft
In springtime, you hear tons of beautiful birds chirping and singing their songs. We love learning about all kinds of birds, but especially blue birds because they are so easy to spot when we are outside! I use this Blue Bird Craft to discuss baby birds entering the world in the spring.
This craft is a great activity to work one on one with students because of the sharp corners of the beak and the stick legs. I just love the blue bird’s little stick legs!
Spring Bumble Bee Craft
In spring we start to hear the bees buzzing around. I like to use this time of year to educate my little ones on the importance of pollination. I let them know how important bees are to the creation of our fruits and vegetables. It helps students see that we don’t have to be afraid of bees. Plus, this Bumble Bee Craft is super cute!
Add the bumble bee to a writing piece about facts students learned about bees. The final product will make a bright and cheerful hallway display!
I included six different spring activities in this Colorful Spring Crafts Bundle! I hope they can help bring some cheerfulness to your classroom atmosphere this spring.
