Simple Crafts with Kids Bring Lifelong Memories

I love Spring. Colors become pastels, flowers begin to bloom and you can buy Cadbury Egg's! Yes, I admit it. I have a weakness for Easter candy. 

One of the things on my year's "to-do" list was to spend more one-on-one with the kids {my 14 year old hates being called a "kid" but she's still my baby}. In the past few months we've started doing weekly crafts in our house. I have to admit my 6-year old daughter is much more excited and involved but all around, it brings us closer together. We laugh together, well mostly at me, but that's ok. I'm loving every second of it.

I've put together some crafty ideas I want to do with the kids during this Spring. I know we won't be able to make all of them, but a handful will do.
The sources are all available on my Pinterest Spring Fever page here.

I encourage everyone with kids, make a craft at least once a week together. It doesn't have to be anything extravagant. The paint chip egg garland above wouldn't take long at all and cost almost nothing. Your kids just want you. These will be lifelong memories, for the both of you.
