Spring Break Craft Ideas

spring break craft ideas: peanut butter bird feeder

Is it just me or is March going by in a blur? I realized this weekend that next week is spring break for my girl. That teensy tiny realization has me scrambling for ideas.

As I’ve mentioned once or twice (or possibly a million times), my big little lady gets bored easily. While the little one can get lost playing with her little people for hours, Sam needs more.

I’ve found that the best way to deal with her boredom is by being totally prepared. More often than not I am not prepared. But now that I’m an old thirty-year-old lady, I thought I should get myself together. 😉

Now, the problem with spring break in the northeast is that you really can’t predict the weather. We could have awesome, playground-worthy weather or the snow could just keep coming.

In case of less than stellar weather, I went hunting for kids crafts and a couple of experiments (she loves experiments!) and this is what I came up with:

  1. I always did a similar project with colored water with my students when we studied plants. (talking about how water moves through the plants I took two colors of water and stuck one carnation in each color and the third carnation I split the stem in half and put one half in one color and the other half in the other color. Students were always amazed how one half was one color and the other half was the other. (HINT: Make your color strong in the water….put lots of drops of food coloring and also leave for several days!!
