Refreshing Spring Crafts and Cooking Ideas for Kids & Kid-Like Adults #Easter


Spring is just around the corner (March 20th, to be exact) and wonderful, easy, and fun arts and crafts and cooking projects that will get you and your kids in the mood are everywhere.  After a long, hard winter in many parts of the U.S. just about everyone -- small and grown-up children, alike -- will enjoy making some or all of these lovely projects.

The Bunny Cupcakes pictured here that are topped with decorated sugar cookies are among my favorite projects this year.  See for Directions

Here's another really cute project ... a Yellow Duck made from a Tennis Ball and some other basic craft materials.  See FamilyFun for Directions

FamilyFun is definitely wonderful at both cooking with kids and also making crafts. Here's a dimensional cookie that almost looks like a real cracked egg -- including a "yolk" made from lemon sorbet nestled in a whipped cream "egg white."  This would be a fun dessert you and your child can make together.   Directions

HomemadeSimple is another great source for spring craft ideas. Don't you just love these elaborate decorated eggs? They're not as hard to make as they look, so check this out.  Directions 

FamilyFun also has this really cute carrot table setting idea that requires just napkins, disposable silverware, and pipe cleaners. Kids and adults can easily make these together at home or school.  A fun way to accent any Easter dinner gathering.  Directions

From Celebrations comes a hand full of crafts and some tasty treat recipes to make with real jelly beans that are easy and colorful.  Directions

Don't forget:  Be sure to bookmark this page and keep returning as I'll be adding more spring ideas as they are discovered.
