The first "official" day of spring is at the end of the week. But in our neck of the wood it feels like spring - YEAH!
Here is a simple, fun spring craft for kids that will brighten your home.
This craft is best suited to Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade kids.
Bingo Marker Spring Craft for KidsMy kids love using bingo markers. So we are always looking for ways to incorporate them into crafts and learning activities. Today’s Simple Simple Spring Windsock Craft is a great one to incorporate them!
To start with let your kids decorate a regular sheet of cardstock with bingo markers – however they want to.
Older kids may make a picture or pattern where Toddler and Preschool kids will just fill it with color!
Once it has dried, pull the short ends together and tape to make a cylinder.
Using a hole punch make two holes on opposite sides of the cylinder.
Now weave a pipe cleaner into each hole to make a handle to hang the rainbow windsock craft. You now have lanterns.
Now using crepe paper (we have leftover rolls from birthday parties laying around) tape one end on the inside of the lantern. Leave about 15” of a tail and cut.
Repeat until you have various colors going all around the inside of the lantern. Now you have a rainbow windsock.
The kids were so proud of their rainbow windsocks. They were super simple for all my kiddos to make and are such a cheery addition to our dining room to hold us over until spring hits!
