5 Eco-Friendly Spring Crafts for Kids

Eco-Friendly Spring Crafts for Kids

Spring is here (or at least it is where I live in Georgia)! I’m loving the warmer weather already! Although I don’t have kids of my own, I remember how much I loved making projects with my parents. Spring is such an inspiring season to get outside, get active, and get creative with your children! With that in mind, here are 5 eco-friendly Spring crafts for you and your kids to create!

1. DIY Windchimes by Hands On: As We Grow

Jamie at Hands On: As We Grow created this really beautiful windchime from various tin cans. She had her son help her decorate the cans by painting them and adding lots of glitter! I know this project doesn’t necessarily scream Spring, but I love being outside during this gorgeous season– why not add a little music to your patio or porch? Plus, this is such a great project for your kids to really show off their creativity!

    I can’t get the instructions to load, I’d like to make these tomorrow and and need to know what kind of paint to use.

      Oh weird…her site must be having problems today (assuming you mean the wind chimes on the first page?). I just got it to load (it took a few minutes, though), and she used regular tempera paint and mixed in glitter. Hope this helps!
