Our kids spring crafts are all the buzz! Spring brings with it new life and all the critters that hibernated all winter are out and about.
We've turned empty toilet paper rolls into bumblebees!
Bumble bees do sting, if you bug them. But not our little bee!
As spring approaches take a walk outside and look for all the different kind of critters that you see.
Instead of just a bumble bee, make other things like butterflies, caterpillars, etc.
We are teaching a bumble bee but you can use the same materials and just design it differently to make other spring creatures too!
We can also teach you how to create a fun bumble bee bookmark this spring. This would be a fantastic way to promote reading too!
Let's start a buzz with our kids spring crafts! Without being stung by a bee!
Cut out a strip of yellow construction paper. Make it long enough to wrap around the toilet paper roll. Make the width the same as the roll.
Wrap it around the empty roll and glue it in place.
Cut three strips of black construction paper. Make sure they are long enough to wrap all the way around.
Glue them around your yellow bee body.
Cut out a heart shape with the white paper. Turn it upside down and glue it onto the body. These are the wings of your bumble bee.
Cut a head out of the yellow construction paper. Now, we need some antennae too! Cut these out of black construction paper.
Glue your antennae to the top of your bee's head. Add your googly eyes, and pom pom for a nose.
With a black marker draw on a smile too! Our bee is happy it's spring time.
Glue your head onto the body.
BZZZ!!! Happy Spring everyone! Now you have a cute little bumble bee to decorate for the season.
Pipe Cleaner Butterfly Magnet: A bright and beautiful way to decorate your fridge or classroom chalk board this spring.
Paper Clip Bookmarks: Another fun way to promote reading for this spring, and into summer vacation.

Spring is always filled with rainy days, and kids are not fun when they are bored. Print out a bunch of these Spring Activities for Kids and have them on hand when boredom strikes.
Go out and enjoy a walk in the nice spring weather, then come inside and use these kids spring crafts to re-create all the living things you saw on your walk!
