We had a lot of fun creating each and every one of these projects! I am going to tell you all about them and the process of each of them. The top one was a really fun toddler project in which we used markers to dye coffee filters. this is a simple project and super easy for Spring art. All you have to do is lay out coffee filters and let toddlers color on them with washable markers and then allow them to use a small spray bottle to wet the coffee filters and let them dry out. when they are dry there is a beautiful translucent appearance created! Arrange with stems and petals for a follow up activity!
Next up, a really fun spring art splatter flower project. See the time-lapse for this project here, but it is simple! You allow the kids to splatter some paint or you can do it ahead of time and after it is dry, let the kids use markers and sharpies to find and outline different flowers they see! This is a really fun abstract project for kids to enjoy! Check out the how to in detail here!
More flowers coming your way with spring art egg carton flowers! Easy and beautiful upcycle that kids will enjoy. Simply cut individual egg holder and reassemble and hot glue together to create flower petals. Kids will enjoy painting these beauties in different shades and you can use them to make beautiful packages or a lovely garland.
Here is a really sweet bookish play with nest creating out of playdough. Preschoolers will love this sweet book entitled “Nest” and love creating there own nests with eggs and little odds and ends. Spring will come to life while discussing and partaking in nest building!
Sensory rice spring art alphabet activity! The ultimate hide and seek game allow preschoolers to seek and identify letters that are hidden in a large bowl of sensory rice! My son really enjoyed this activity that helps with letter recognition! Use a tray to capture the mess as little ones pull out wooden letters.
Upcycle magazines and reuse some of those beautiful coffee filter art pieces into lovely collage. I even prepped a few blank cardboard bookmarks for my kids to collage and beautify as well. I love collage because it is so environmentally conscious and allows kids to find the beauty in recycling old print.
Lastly, a little playdough fairy play. I found these wonderful little dishes at target awhile back but you could scour a thrift store for some inexpensive treasures and pair fresh playdough and petals with fairy miniatures for a wonderful afternoon activity!
I hope you enjoyed this spring art project round up and will check back for more ideas soon!
