It's Playtime: The Art and Play of Spring

With spring comes new life, new flowers, and loads of new ideas on It's Playtime!  Here's my features this week celebrating spring.

I generally don't think to use toilet paper when creating with the kiddos but these Toilet Paper Flowers from Let Kids Create are colorful and easy to make.  

At Home with Ali shared this lovely Fairy Princess Flower Crown.  Little fairies will love roaming the garden, dancing amongst the spring flowers wearing this creation.  

Creating spring trees is as easy as fingerpainting!  Babylandia shared how they used paint to celebrate Springtime Arriving.  

Enjoying the Journey used science to create these beautiful Flower Crystals.  

If you were featured this week, don't forget to grab your special "featured button."

These activities plus more can be found over on the It's Playtime Pinterest Board.  Happy Pinning!

  1. My apologies for the number 75 link: "Fun, healthy Food for Kids". I don't know what happened with the picture and I can't delete it or change it. Sorry about that! Debs :)

    1. No problem, it happens. Thanks for linking up!

  2. Whoops! I'm Jen (#134), sorry about my link picture too. I should have linked a photo of Leila playing, not my blog button. I do love reading these activities!

  3. Thanks for sharing my toilet paper flowers! What a lovely surprise!

    1. My pleasure. I've never seen anything done like that with TP; very creative. Thanks for sharing with us!
