Spring Has Sprung!

Spring is here! (Well, officially, at least! There's still snow where we are...)

And with it, comes the opportunity to do some fun crafts with our kids to welcome the warmer weather. Have I ever mentioned that I love Pinterest? ;) I have found some amazing ideas while browsing this (very) addictive site and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

Paper Tulips (great for preschoolers!) - from Easy Child Crafts

And, if you need some yummy treats to go along with your crafting, try these oh-so-Spring-y Mini-Egg Cheesecake Bars from Buttercream Blondie!

~ Happy Spring!! ~

I love the idea of giving the kids shapes pre-cut to work with and seeing what they create.
