15 Fun and Educational Crafts for Kids – Mom ThrivesMayıs 6, 2021
Spring always brings a bit of luck to our days. The birds are chirping, things are getting greener, the windows are being opened and it all feels like it’s okay. Of course, when spring arrives, the cloudy days, rainy weather and not-so-warm temperatures roll in too.
In our home, this means that getting the child outside for the day is sometimes a success or failure. This year I made up my mind to look for fun crafts that I can turn into classroom opportunities.
Let’s face it, we can only see so many Disney + documentaries about animals before we start to sound like the narrators in our daily lives.
Spring crafts for rainy days
I like to reserve arts and crafts for days when it’s a little colder or rainier. This helps keep the child entertained and gives us something to do. This way we can split up the screen time while learning with him and him some educational facts about what we are creating.
Make them educational
To make the craft more educational, I have included some information on each of the selected crafts for you to share with your child. I will add links about the craft and additional sources of education under each craft.
