Spring and Easter Activities

Time to get busy on some Spring activities like the recycled flowerpots pictured above! Here is a list of fun unit studies and art projects great for all ages!

Here is a neat craft and science project all in one! Dye carnations by putting cut flowers into colored water for a fun spring bouquet!

Remember how fun it was to blow the middle out of an egg? Well here is a neat way to use up those egg shells by making a bird you can hang and let "fly"!

Got younger ones? How about reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar and then making this paper inch worm!

What's one of the best things about spring returning? The birds are returning too! This easy bird feeder is great for kids of all ages and can also double as science!

Toysmith Solar Print Kit #4062 is another great way to incorporate science and fun! Use peices of nature and the power of the sun to create works of art!

This popcorn tree is the perfect pre-school project and is yummy too!

Suncatchers are always a hit in our house. Just use some tissue paper and contact paper to make a beautiful suncatcher!

My older kids at co-op love doing origami. Here is an origami basket.

Th fun project for teens, artistic inchies, can be displayed on the wall. offers a number of easter notebooks and lapbooking kits.

If you have any fun craft ideas for the spring please feel free to post!

Or, if you are feeling more adventurous, you could try dropping small quantities of alkali metals in water.
