7 Spring Weather Crafts for Kids

Tonight I sat down to think of a fun spring craft I could create for my granddaughter and decided to search around a little for some inspiration. While I found plenty of crafts that could be related to this season, I was focusing more on weather related crafts since that is what seems to be on our minds the most at the moment. We are all wondering if it is ever going to start feeling like spring weather!

Here are some of the great projects I found that are perfect for younger kids. I hope you enjoy making these while you wait for me to post the spring weather craft I am designing.

    These are good projects for youngsters. The creativity of kids can be harnessed if parents will allow them to spend time on said activities.
