Spring is in the Air. Give these crafts a try while you wait for the snow to melt

Fork Flowers

Simply use a plastic fork and dip it in your favorite pastel colour. Place the fork bottom side down on the paper. Repeat with as many colours as you like. Use your finger to draw the stems with green paint. 

Egg Shell Planters

Martha Stewart
Use eggshells as pots to start seeds and coffee-stirrer tags to label the plants.  Plant seeds according to package instructions, and nestle planters in an egg carton on a sunny windowsill, where they can be watered easily. When plants have grown to about 3 inches and have at least two sets of true leaves, they are ready to be transplanted to the garden. (Place in the dirt and break off eggshells first.) 

Milk Jug Watering Can

You can make your own watering can to go with your garden. Simply take an old juice or milk jug and remove the lid. Use a nail and hammer to place small holes in lid. Fill with water and replace the lid and you have a watering jug. You can make one for each child and have them paint or draw their names on the outside.

Pine Cone Bird Feeder


On your next walk outside, see if you can find some big pine cones on the ground or on a tree. Take the pine cone and cover it in nut butter, next roll it in seeds, nuts or dried fruit. Hang them near the house and watch the birds come and feed. 


Simply mix full fat plain yogurt and kool aid. This is entirely edible so it is great for toddlers. If you are concerned about your child eating the Kool Aid here is a link to MAKING NATURAL FOOD COLOURING
