I love to do crafts! Most of all I love to do crafts with my girls, necies, and nephews too! They range from age 1 to 8! I try to find things that will be fun for all of them! I love to do Holiday kids crafts, and seasonal ones too! 

This week I have planned decorating some water bottles, (after cutting them in half), going into my back yard letting them dig up some dirt, planting some seeds and watching them grow! Thought it might be fun for them!!!! They get to craft, get messy, and watch the plant grow!

What are some spring crafts that you like to do? Im looking for some ideas to keep them busy for spring and running into summer! I'm a stay at home mom, Due in July with our 3rd baby girl, I also babysit my 2 neices and my 1 nephew some time my 2 nephews! So Id like some things that I can still do with them after the baby is born for the times we cant get outside etc... 

Thought it might be fun to share some of our ideas too! I will post pics of some of the crafts we have resently done this year! Thank you for your ideas and support!

We've just started getting into crafts here. Right now he has a beading activity, pipe cleaners and pony heads. We just got some foam stickers and construction paper so I'll see how that goes!

Ohhhh there's too many!!

But my absolute favorite is letting them mix up liquid sidewalk chalk.  It's a great activity for learning about measurements and color mixing.  Then they get to go crazy with it!!  You can do more than paint with it, too.  Spray it, sponge it, fling it, squeeze it, and bounce it on a soaked tennis ball!  My oldest LOVES it!!

Here's my recipe

You're doing great with them! I wish I had ideas, my stuff my kids can't really help with. They are still in the 'hurt more than help' phase being 5 & 2.
