Spring Crafts

Put some spring in your step (or at least on your fridge) with these do-it-yourself projects.
 
 

Tie-dyed Easter Eggs

Dyeing Easter eggs is an eagerly anticipated annual tradition at our house, but I like to try new techniques from time to time to keep the project fresh and interesting. This year, we decided to experiment with a material called bleeding tissue paper to dye our eggs. Bleeding tissue paper looks like regular tissue paper, but the color transfers to other surfaces (like egg shells), leaving an interesting "tie-dyed" impression.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Slithering snake craft for kids

Real snakes probably are not your favorite animal, but these super cute (and super simple) coiled cardboard snakes are easy to love. This project is a great example of how just a few really basic, simple craft supplies can be transformed into a creative and fun activity for the preschool and toddler set.
