27 Spring Crafts for Preschoolers

27 Cute Spring Crafts for Kids

My favourite thing about Spring is decorating my classroom with colourful and vibrant spring decorations. The best thing is they are all cute crafts done by my children! These Spring Crafts for preschoolers are super easy to make and budget-friendly too. Children love animals insects flowers or anything to do with nature. Spring is the best opportunity to learn and explore nature. I have always loved teaching spring themes and making spring crafts. Here I have gathered a collection of my favourite spring craft ideas.

The best thing about this craft is minimal prep time. There is no pre-cutting. This is also a good fine-motor skill activity. This is a great craft project if you have a large group of children. You will get a great outcome with minimal supervision. The supplies are pretty much things you should already have at hand.

Supplies:

  • Sharpened pencils for sketching sharpened pencils with brand new erasers for making the dots of paint
  • Tempera paint. Red, blue, green, brown and white (or you could have students mix yellow and blue to make different shades of green)

The following is a great way to practice gluing and pasting skills. The materials are things you might already have at hand. If you want to add the cutting skill as well you can always leave that for the child to do. In my Montessori class, I have done this same project with coloured tissue paper. I let the children tear the tissue papers into small pieces and squish them into tiny paper balls. That way it will be a two-day craft project. The first day can be a group project where they tear and make paper balls. On the second day, they can paste them.
