I love the days getting longer and the absence of dark evenings as it means the kids and I can go for walks after school, and admire the appearance of pretty flowers and buzzing bees.

Bees are everywhere and my children enjoy watching them fly from flower to flower. We have so many easy honey bee crafts for Spring.

This honey bee with moving wings looks as if it is ready to fly and catch some pollen.

Of course I already have a moving bee craft puppet in my adorable Spring paper plate craft below

Can you ask your children what other insects they could make that might fly through the air? How about a butterfly? Butterfly crafts are one of my most popular Spring activities for children. 

Of course there are others such as flies and ladybugs. Speaking of which why not use a walnut shell for my easy ladybug craft
