Spring Kids Crafts

With our spring kids crafts you can bring all the spring weather to the kitchen fridge.

Spring is a season with a variety of weather - from sun to rain, and even snow! The saying "April showers brings May flowers" is just a way to say April is a rainy month (usually). 

We are lucky enough to even have a snow storm in mid-April!

The spring season is a great time to teach and learn about the weather, because there is such a variety. 

Here's a bunch of magnets that reflect the different weather spring can bring - and what can happen in each kind of weather. 

These magnet crafts can be used on the kitchen fridge, classroom chalkboard or any other magnetic surface. 

Have fun each morning by putting up the magnets that reflect the weather. 

We made a set for rainy days and sunny days. We skipped on the snowy days, hoping those are VERY few!

Rainy Spring Days

These spring kids crafts will help you make magnets for the rainy days. Of course there are lots of clouds when it rains. 

We also need an umbrella when this weather hits, so we've made on of those too.

This magnet is pretty simple to make.

  1. Cut a cloud shape out of white craft foam.
  2. Glue a magnet on one side of the cloud.
  3. Bend a blue pipe cleaner to the shape of your cloud.
  4. Glue the pipe cleaner around the edges of the craft foam. 
  5. Allow everything to dry.

When it rains we also need an umbrella, like these spring kids crafts instructions:

  • Shape one pipe cleaner into a half moon shape. On the flat end, crimp it to make the bottom of your umbrella.
  • Twist another color pipe cleaner so that it wraps around each of the bends on the bottom of your umbrella.
  • Add a hook piece to the bottom for your handle. 
  • Glue the magnet to the top of the umbrella, on the back.

Sunny Days

There are a few (and usually very few) sunny days in April. These are when the flowers start to bloom and color starts to pop out of the ground. 

We've make spring magnets for this weather too!

All we need for this sunshine is an orange pipe cleaner and a yellow pipe cleaners.

  1. Crimp your orange pipe cleaner into a zig zag shape. You may need to twist two pipe cleaners together, depending on how big your sun is. 
  2. Twirl your yellow pipe cleaner into swirl.
  3. Place the yellow swirl into the center of your zig zag. Wrap the zig zag orange pipe cleaner into a circle and twist it togetjer.
  4. Glue the magnet where you have twisted everything together. This will hide it.

With sun and rain, you get flowers.

  1. Create flower petals out of a pipe cleaner. 
  2. Glue a yellow pom pom into the center of the petals.
  3. Create a stem out of a green pipe cleaner and glue it to the bottom of the flower.
  4. Glue your magnet on the back, behind the center of the flower.

Fill the fridge or chalkboard with bright colors, and interactive home-made magnets.
