Spring is a time of rebirth and blossoming. All of the little critters come out and start to join the world again. So, lots of these crafts will be our little animal friends. You’ll also find bugs, birds, things from the farm, flowers, rain and weather crafts, and more.

Craft Supplies to Gather

Each craft will tell you exactly what items to grab from your kids’ craft bag. But every single craft supply comes from the same master list that we use for every single creative project you see on this site and in our shop. By sticking to this list, it’s like having a capsule wardrobe that you can mix and match for thousands of crafty options…but instead of outfits, we’re putting together amazing kids’ crafts. Fill your bag so that you’re ready to craft along too.

Why is Spring Called Spring?

According to Dictionary.com, spring was known as lent, or the lentene season, which came from the Old English lengten, which means β€œto make longer or greater in length.” The days get longer in Spring. In the 1300’s the term lent was replaced by “springing time”, since the plants begin to “spring” from the ground. After a few name changes it was shortened to “Spring”.
